In Thailand, home care is increasing in use but little is known about outcomes of care and related factors. The purpose of this descriptive correlational study was to examine the relationships between patient factors, home care provision and outcomes of care. The modified Andersen model guided the study. The secondary analysis of the Ramathibodi Home Care Data Set (RHCDS) 1993 -1997 was done to answer the research questions. The sample selected from the RHCDS was patients age 40 and over. Patient factors were age at discharge, gender, economic problem, number of caregivers, mental status and functional status. Home care provision included the rate of home visits per year and length of stay in home care. The outcome of care was the discharge disposition: discharge at home, hospital readmission, and death. Multiple regression analyses indicated that economic problem, number of caregivers, and mental status explained a small portion of home care provision. Logistic regression analyses showed that economic status and functional status were related to discharge disposition. The rate of home visits per year and length of stay had no effect on discharge disposition and home care provision did not mediate the relationships between patient factors and outcomes of care. The results of the study provide empirical evidence to build scientific underpinning for home care nursing practice in Thailand and to help nursing administrators and policymakers understand the nature of home care provision and outcomes of care that were influenced by patient factors. Replication of this study with prospective design or a moderating model is recommended. AN: MN030355
