Abstract

Little is known about the relationship between care coordination directly assessed from the patient's perspective and patient satisfaction. This study applied multiple logistic regression models to examine associations between patient-reported care coordination and patient satisfaction among 1367 patients with diabetes. We found robust positive relationship between care coordination and patient satisfaction with overall chronic care (odds ratio [OR] = 1.78), one's regular doctor (OR = 1.85), and the way care was organized (OR = 1.98). Implications for health plans, providers, and future research are discussed.
