ICSI Plans Symposium on New Depression Treatment Program That Is Improving Patient Outcomes Five-Fold Over Typical Primary Care
Date:7/7/2009

BLOOMINGTON, Minn., July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- The Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement (ICSI) will hold a symposium here on October 5 to explain how its DIAMOND program is dramatically improving patient outcomes and lowering the cost of care for patients with depression.

The DIAMOND program changes how care for the patient with depression is delivered and paid for in primary care settings. The symposium will focus on the 18-month experiences of provider groups, behavioral health specialists, health plans, employers and patients with the program. Ed Wagner, MD, co-developer of the Chronic Care Model, will keynote the one-day event.

"Among patients contacted six months after activation in DIAMOND, 43 percent have recovered," said Nancy Jaeckels, Vice President of Member Relations and Strategic Initiatives, ICSI. "These excellent results, coupled with the fact that this type of collaborative approach has been shown to save thousands of dollars per patient in health care costs, as well as improve their quality of life and productivity, have created great interest among provider groups, health plans, employers and policy makers seeking a better solution to managing this chronic disease."

The DIAMOND Symposium will address:

  • The evidence-based models behind the DIAMOND program
  • Processes used to create and sustain the new care delivery and payment models
  • Coordinating the continuum of care with primary care and behavioral health
  • Patient outcomes and patient perspectives
  • Best clinical practices for implementing DIAMOND
  • Health plan and employer returns on investment
  • Clinic experience with DIAMOND as a medical home for patients with depression

DIAMOND addresses some of the fundamental areas identified in the Chronic Care Model developed
