Monitoring different variables, the purpose of this study was to determine what percentage of patients which were admitted acutely to the hospital, did indeed make it to their first scheduled follow-up appointment. In addition, the
natural environmental variables were examined.

Previous studies have suggested that system responsiveness accounted for much of the variance in predicting compliance with aftercare. Collaborations established at our institution allowed us to partially control this variable, opening the way to explore other obstacles to aftercare. All severely mentally ill subjects discharged from our hospital are provided follow-up appointments within two weeks. We retrospectively evaluated compliance with aftercare appointment and investigated factors that were associated with compliance. Eighty-one subjects were evaluated. Twenty-seven (33.8 %) did not attend their first follow-up appointment. Subjects with a primary substance-related syndrome were the most likely to miss their appointment (83.3%, χ2 = 17.02, p = .0045), as were uninsured patients (51.6%, χ2 = 8.79, p = .003). There was a trend for individuals not previously involved with their aftercare providers to miss their appointment (48.9%, χ2 = 3.35, p = .067). Despite partial control of the system responsiveness variable, compliance with aftercare was suboptimal. This was due to a combination of client vulnerability variables and uncontrollable system responsiveness factors.     Author(s) affiliations   1.
