Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Usual Subspecialty Care

Once a subject is screened positive for anxiety or depression, the subspecialty provider is informed of the positive screen, and left to manage or refer the condition as per usual care by that provider.

Intervention: Depression / anxiety screen + clinician informed.

Other: Notification of Subspecialist
The automated screening tool determines a positive or negative screen, then informs the clinician.
Active Comparator: Integrated Psychology Care

Once a subject is screened positive for anxiety or depression, an automated psychology referral occurs, in addition to any intervention determined by the subspecialty provider.

Intervention: Depression / anxiety screen + clinician informed + automated psychologist visit.

Other: Automated Psychology Services
The automated screening tool determines a positive or negative screen, then informs the clinician, and also automates a psychology visit.
