Depression Disease Management:
Healthcare's New Frontier

Lost workdays, compromised productivity, accidents from lapses in judgment – whatever the symptom, depression poses a severe threat to industrial progress and financial stability. The tendency of depression to be coupled with other diseases results not only in heightened healthcare costs but also employee absenteeism, lost productivity and presenteeism while on the job. Depression management programs are aiming to address the multi-prong effects of depression through comprehensive care management.

In this special report, "Depression Disease Management: Healthcare's New Frontier," based on a recent audio conference and two in-depth case studies on depression management programs, you'll hear about the broad array of depression disease management programs, ranging from differences in treatment length to pharmaceutical trials to staff roles and patient responsibility.
