Logistic regression analysis to identify predictors of poor achievement of K/DOQI Goals. The outcome was defined as having less than five of the nine parameters shown in Table 3 at goal. Shown are the odds ratio (OR), 95% confidence interval (CI), and p-value. All 2-way interaction terms were tested and no interaction was detected. Thus, interaction terms were excluded from the full model. All variables entered are shown. Short nephrology care (SNC) was defined as having been seen by a nephrologist for 6 months or less. African Americans were compared to all other ethnicities. No show ≥ 50% indicates failure to attend scheduled clinic appointments at least half the time.
