Do health and health care indicators differ by preferred language in Latinx and Chinese Adults? A health and health care disparities study.

Limited English proficiency may be an important social determinant of health and health care access. This study will use electronic health record data to describe and compare health risks, chronic health conditions, quality metrics, and health care use by language preference for 2 cohorts of adults aged 25-84 who were KPNC members during calendar year 2019: Latino adults with Spanish vs. English spoken language preference and Chinese adults with Chinese dialect vs. English spoken language preference. Study results will improve understanding of whether and how limited English proficiency contributes to disparities in health and health care utilization in these 2 ethnic groups in a health care delivery system that has made extensive efforts to mitigate language barriers to care delivery.

Women’s Multi-Ethnic Health and Lifestyle Survey

We propose to survey White, Black, Latina, Filipina, Chinese, South Asian, Vietnamese, and Japanese women aged 35-79 to characterize and compare these racial/ethnic groups on behaviors and risks related to 7 lifestyle medicine domains (diet, physical activity, sleep, stress management, tobacco avoidance, limited alcohol use, positive social connections) and 1 mental health domain (feelings of depression and anxiety). We will also collect data about potential facilitators and barriers to having a healthy lifestyle, including socioeconomic factors (education, income), social risks (financial strain, psychosocial stressors, experienced discrimination/harassment, social support), familiarity with and interest in plant-based diets, and beliefs about the extent to which different lifestyle practices can improve health and longevity. Survey data will be linked with EHR data to describe subgroups of women who already have prediabetes and selected chronic conditions.

Building an Evidence Case for Capturing Educational Attainment in the EHR as a Social Determinant of Health

Educational attainment is an important social determinant of health, but it is not included in the electronic health records of a majority of adults. When the information is available, it is frequently not captured in a way that makes it easy to use in large data-only studies. This study will build evidence for the value of including educational attainment as a discrete categorical variable in electronic health records by examining the association of educational attainment with prevalence of chronic health conditions, obesity and smoking, quality metrics, and use of health care services and the patient portal among Medicaid enrollees aged 25-64 and a cohort of Medicare-aged (65-89 years) adults. The study will also examine differences by education across and within race/ethnic groups and within age groups, adjusted for sex and race/ethnicity. Lastly, we will evaluate different cut-points for educational attainment to make recommendations on ways to dichotomize education as a risk predictor.

Use of Digital Information Technologies and Health Information Resources by Limited English Proficient Latino and Chinese Adult Members

goal of this research is to learn about use of digital information
technologies (DIT) and the website and patient portal, preferred
modalities for receiving health information and advice, and social
determinants of DIT use and health information preferences by members by
limited English proficient (LEP) Spanish and Chinese patients. Study data
will be collected using anonymous self-administered questionnaires
distributed and collected by line staff in dedicated La Salud and Chinese
modules in several Kaiser Permanente Northern California medical facilities.
We will also compare use of the patient portal during a 12-month period prior
to the survey by LEP Spanish and Chinese speakers who receive care in
dedicated bilingual modules vs. at-large modules to evaluate generalizability
of survey results.

Healthy Eating as a Means for Active Living in Heart Failure (HEAL-HF) Study

There is an unmet clinical need to better understand the impact of lifestyle choices with respect to diet and nutrition in high-risk heart failure patients who have been recently hospitalized. We will conduct a survey-based project using a combination of questionnaires to assess 4 clinically relevant domains: food access and security, dietary composition and quality, nutritional awareness and understanding, and attitudes toward nutrition-related research. The survey itself will take no more than 15 to 30 minutes to complete and will be administered via telephone to 1,000 consecutive patients recently hospitalized with a primary diagnosis of heart failure who are responsible for their own meal planning. In addition to the survey elements, outcomes of interest will include subsequent heart failure hospitalization, all-cause hospitalization, and mortality occurring within 30 days. These outcomes will be passively collected via Kaiser Permanente HealthConnect electronic health records.

Similarities and Differences in Health Indicators and Health Care Use Among Asian Ethnic Groups

​This study will examine whether significant differences across Asian ethnic groups in prevalence of chronic diseases, behavioral/psychosocial risk factors, preventive service use, and patient portal use are masked when statistics are reported for “Asians.” It will utilize electronic health records and clinical/administrative data for a cohort of adults aged 20 to 89 who were Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC) members throughout 2016 to compare six Asian ethnic groups (Filipino, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, South Asian, and Southeast Asian) on prevalence of chronic health conditions, obesity, and smoking status; Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) quality indicators of chronic disease management and cancer screening; and patient portal use during 2016. Pooled data weighted from the 2011, 2014/2015, and 2017 KPNC Member Health Surveys will also be used to compare the Asian ethnic groups on sociodemographic characteristics, health status, health behaviors, and information technology (IT) use. Asian ethnic groups will also be compared with non-Hispanic whites, blacks, and Latinos.

Does Information about Members’ Social Determinants of Health Improve Prediction of Risk for Hospitalization, Emergency Department Visits, and Outpatient Utilization?

The new Kaiser Permanente Your Current Life Situation (YCLS) screening questionnaire will be mailed to a random sample of 7,000 adult members of Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC), oversampling patients at low to medium risk for hospitalization. After receiving responses, YCLS data will be linked with existing variables known to be predictors of utilization, including age, sex, COPS2 (COmorbidity Point Score, version 2), abLAPS (abbreviated Laboratory-based Acute Physiology Score), other composite indices currently available in KPNC electronic databases, and U.S. census-derived socioeconomic status data. The linked data will be analyzed to determine the extent to which the YCLS data improves prediction of hospitalization, emergency department use, and total outpatient utilization, and, if improvement in prediction is found after incorporating YCLS data, which specific items from the YCLS have the greatest impact. Responses to the YCLS survey, weighted to the adult membership, will also be used to estimate prevalence of KPNC adult members’ social and economic needs.

Does Combining Asians Into One Group Mask Important Ethnic Group Differences in Health and Health Care Use?

This study will examine whether significant differences across Asian ethnic groups in prevalence of chronic diseases, behavioral and psychosocial risk factors, preventive service use, and patient-portal use are masked when statistics are reported for Asians. We will use a very large cohort of adults aged 20 to 90 who were members of Kaiser Permanente Northern California for two or more years as of December 2016 to compare six Asian ethnic groups (Filipino, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, South Asian, and Southeast Asian). Electronic health record and clinical and administrative data linked to the cohort will be used to compare prevalence of chronic conditions, HEDIS (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set) performance on chronic disease management and cancer screening, frequency of smoking, frequency of obesity and exercise, and patient-portal use. Pooled data from the 2011 and 2014-15 Member Health Surveys will be used to compare Asian ethnic groups on sociodemographic characteristics, health status, and health behavior and psychosocial risks. Asian ethnic groups will also be compared with non-Hispanic white, black, and Latino adults.
