A Comparison of Collaborative Care Outcomes in Two Health Care Systems: VA Clinics and Federally Qualified Health Centers
Compares merged data from two different collaborative care trials: Telemedicine-Enhanced Antidepressant Management (TEAM) evaluating collaborative care for veterans with depression at a Veterans Affairs (VA) community-based outpatient clinics (CBOCs); and Outreach Using Telemedicine for Rural Enhanced Access in Community Health (OUTREACH) evaluating collaborative care for civilians with depression at Federally Qualified Health Clinics (FQHCs). Aim of study is to determine whether there are any significant differences in outcomes between the two population groups from each of the trials. Studies were conducted in the rural South.
