Is based off of the new HQO Quality Guidelines for Major Depression Disorder
Directly links to screening tools (PHQ-9, GAD-7), resources and referrals
Includes a new Patient handout feature, which enables you to:
Create an individualized treatment plan and educational handout for your patients
Reinforce your in-visit health teaching
Create a medication plan and new medication education
Customize self-care activities and referrals
Added features for tablets
Enhance your practice by using our “QBIC Depression” tablet eForm
eForm links directly with our mental health visit Encounter Assistant (described above) to help auto-populate information in the EMR
Be able to review your patient’s subjective information before you enter the exam room

“I have been using the progress note Encounter Assistant tool in combination with the OCEAN patient questionnaire for the past several months with my patients, and have found it very valuable to guide my patient encounters, and it has certainly cut down on my charting time for these visits.”
