Depression Care Management

The evidence is conclusive. With help, you can improve the outcomes of your depressed patients while easing your workload.

Good depression care takes time and can cause a busy office schedule to spin out of control for the rest of the day. With an offsite Depression Care Manager, you make the diagnosis and start treatment, knowing that a skilled professional at no expense to you will:

  • Educate the patient about depression and its treatment
  • Repeatedly monitor the patientís response to treatment
  • Alert you if the patient fails to improve

Clinical trials demonstrate better outcomes for patients who participate in Depression Care Management, thereby increasing efficiency in treating patients with depression. Let Depression Care Management provide your patients the education and coordinated follow-up care they need to get on with their lives.

How Depression Care Management Reduces Employee Suffering
The following graphs show how depression care management increases remission and reduces emotional impairment over a two-year period compared to the care patients generally receive.

Depressed individuals are determined to be in remission when they no longer report a period of two weeks where they feel A.) down, depressed or hopeless or B.) little interest or pleasure on doing things.

Emotional Impairment Days
Emotional impairment days are days when an individualís emotional problems are so severe that s/he has to cut back on normal activities by at least a half-day or stay in bed. Depression Care Management reduces the emotional impairment days each individual suffers by an average of 31.0 days each year over usual care.

Whatís good for your practice is really good for your patients.
