  1. 1 Beta estimates are derived from multi-level regressions.
  2. 2ES/SD: Effect Size / Standard deviation; S if ES/SD < 0.2; M if 0.2 < =ES/SD < 0.5; L if 0.5 < =ES/SD < 0.8; VL if ES/SD > =0.8.
  3. 3 Factor considered were: Patient’s age, gender, work status, being a patient of the practice less than 2 years, having mental problems at least one day in the previous 30 days, having at least one chronic disease, and education.
  4. 4Factors were the same as above. There were no significant provider factors.
