Table 4 Effect of Program on Patient Care Experiences, Clinician-reported Teamwork, and Office Visit Frequency

From: A quasi-experiment assessing the six-months effects of a nurse care coordination program on patient care experiences and clinician teamwork in community health centers

Outcome N Intervention Comparison Difference in change from baseline to follow-up (F-B) for intervention vs. comparison (difference in difference)

  1. Notes: Results presented are for analysis comparing effects for program enrollees. N = number subjects analyzed, which is less than total patients in Table 3 because some patients participated in both periods or had missing data; LS-mean = least squares mean (mean adjusted for covariates). The scale ranged from 1 to 4 for patient care experience and staff teamwork, and from 1 to 10 for office visit frequency. Higher values are better
