Abstract

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether a patient-physician agreement instrument predicts important health outcomes. DESIGN: Three hundred eighty patients with back pain were enrolled in a comparison of rapid magnetic resonance imaging with standard x-rays. One month later, patients rated agreement with their physician in the following areas: diagnosis, diagnostic plan, and treatment plan. Outcomes included patient satisfaction with care at 1 and 12 months and functional and health status at 12 months. SETTING: Urban academic and community primary care and specialty clinics. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS: Higher agreement at 1 month (using a composite sum of scores on the 3 agreement questions) was correlated in univariate analysis with higher patient satisfaction at 1 month (R=.637, P
