Quality of life and functional health were measured cross-sectionally for 314 adult ambulatory primary care patients in a rural clinic and found to be much better for patients with low severity of illness who required no confinement to home because of health problems, than for patients with high severity of illness who required confinement.
Severity of illness was the strongest predictor for patient-reported physical health function and for patient quality of life when assessed by the health provider.
Confinement was the strongest predictor for patient quality of life when assessed by the patient.
