Adult depression inpatient outcomes

Adult Depression Inpatient Outcomes

Rogers Behavioral Health has more than 20 years of commitment and investment in outcomes studies, with nearly 10,000 of our patients participating. Patients who agree to participate are asked at admission and discharge to complete a series of questionnaires; follow-up calls on progress are made periodically after discharge.

Study findings are used by our treatment teams to examine the effectiveness of our clinical program and to make improvements. The findings are also presented at national and international conferences and published in peer-reviewed medical literature.

Overall, our outcome data consistently have shown that our residential and partial hospitalization treatment centers offer effective treatment, and newer studies under way are demonstrating similar consistency in outcomes for our partial hospital level of outpatient care. In selected programs where we have reached out one year after they leave the program, past patients report that they’ve been able to maintain the gains they made during treatment. With the implementation of our Cerner electronic health record, we are gaining additional understanding of our clinical effectiveness across service lines, levels of care and throughout our system, including our regional network of outpatient centers. With this knowledge, we are gaining insights that contribute to real-time adjustments in care and help us confirm the impact of evidence-based care upon outcomes.

Patients in our adult inpatient units are asked to routinely complete the Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology (QIDS). This measure helps us to create individualized treatment plans addressing each person’s unique concerns, assess each patient’s progress in treatment, and evaluate the overall effectiveness of our programs. Rogers obtained these outcomes from 806 patients in 2018.

Quick Inventory of Depressive Symptomatology (QIDS) – Measures the overall severity of depression symptoms. Higher scores indicate greater severity. Scores range from 0 to 27, higher scores indicate greater severity.

Results

  • From February of 2018 until Sept of 2018, 701 adults admitted to our inpatient services completed measures at both admission and discharge. 44% were female and the mean age was 34 years (SD=13.0).

  • At time of admission, individuals report severe depression, as measured by the QIDS (m= 16.93, SD=5.63); at time of discharge individuals report mild levels of depression (m=8.17, SD=5.27). Utilizing paired sample t-tests, we find that these differences are statistically significant at the p< .001.
