How to Purchase Depression Care Management for Your Employees

All disease management programs for depression are not the same. AspenPointe provides, as a minimum, all the necessary components of evidence-based care. With non-clinically proven programs that do not contain these components, you may fail to achieve your return on investment.

Disease management programs for depression should include the following components of evidence-based care:
  • Education for patients regarding depression and its treatment.
  • Six monthly outreach calls in the first six months.
  • Six quarterly outreach calls between 7-24 months even if the patient feels better.
  • Care Management protocols to contact healthcare professionals if patients fail to improve or begin to feel worse again.
We evaluate the progress of patients when they start the program and every six months through the length of the program. Our program evaluation demonstrates the following:
  • Decrease in patient depressive symptom severity
  • Improvement in patient’s overall physical and mental health, physical and social functioning and ability to work
  • High level of customer satisfaction with the depression care management program
  • Improvement in the productivity and work attendance of participating employees
  • Cost savings associated with improved productivity and work attendance
Depression Care Management reduces absenteeism by 28.4% each year.
 
 
Depression Care Management reduces lost productivity at work by 90.1% each year.

AspenPointe Calendar

Since 1875...


AspenPointe has empowered clients, enriched lives and embraced purpose through behavioral health services, counseling services, career services, substance abuse treatment, employment, education, housing, jail diversion/reintegration and care management.

One of the largest nonprofits in Colorado Springs, AspenPointe traces its roots back to 1875 when we were called the Springs Relief Society. That organization, which delivered coal, lumber and clothing to the needy, was the genesis of what today is a comprehensive and integrated system of care that addresses the overall wellness of each client whether they need behavioral health services, counseling services or career services.

We have 12 organizations that serve more than 30,000 individuals and families each year through behavioral health services, counseling services, career services, education, housing, jail diversion/reintegration, telephonic wellness and care management.

We collaborate with clergy, educators, employers, other health and human service agencies, the legal/criminal justice system, other behavioral health providers, insurers, and many other organizations to leverage our collective resources in order to better our communities and the lives of its residents.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit funded largely by Medicaid, state and federal grants, local government contracts, and generous donations.
