    Article, Communication - En anglais

    Symposium "Managed Care and Depression : Can Quality Be Assured ?". New York, NY, USA, 1996/05/05.

    Employee life cycle events and behavioral health disorders impact productivity and well-being.

    However, today's plan designers struggle with employee and employer affordability that does not compromise quality or effectiveness.

    In 1990, Digital Equipment Corporation, Maynard, Mass., shifted its strategy from an indemnity model to a managed care model that uses health maintenance organizations.

    Comprehensive standards are used to ensure the delivery of quality behavioral health care that is cost effective, is delivered at the clinically appropriate levels, and uses a broad continuum of treatment approaches with measurable outcomes.
