This study evaluates the impact of a longitudinal remote consultation (LRC) implementation strategy for collaborative care depression treatment among perinatal women receiving care from federally qualified health centers (FQHCs). All participating FQHCs will receive training in collaborative care. Cluster randomization will be used to assign the addition of LRC to select FQHCs. Differences in implementation success, clinical outcomes, and costs will be compared after a 12 month implementation period and 13-21 month sustainment period.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical depression outcomes [ Time Frame: 12 months post-initiation of collaborative care ]
    Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9); level of depression symptomatology and functional impairment

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Implementation Outcomes [ Time Frame: 12 month post implementation of collaborative care ]
    To assess the degree to which sites in the two conditions complete implementation we will use the Stages of Implementation Completion tool tailored for collaborative care, SIC-CC

Other Outcome Measures:
  • Cost and cost-effectiveness [ Time Frame: 12-month post-implementation of collaborative care ]
    For a cost-benefit analysis, we will use of the Cost of Implementing New Strategies (COINS) method to assess costs in the two conditions. This methodology takes advantage of the SIC-CC instrument as a costing template to map the use of resources and associated costs to these to study conditions. Costs associated with implementation in each of these conditions will be carried out for all 20 health centers included in the study.

Estimated Enrollment: 20
Study Start Date: January 2017
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date: June 2020 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Longitudinal Remote Consultation
This is the active treatment arm consisting of 10 cluster randomized federally qualified health centers receiving both training in collaborative care and longitudinal remote consultation (LRC) support.
Other: Longitudinal Remote Consultation
Longitudinal Remote Consultation utilizes video conferencing to efficiently link providers to consultants who provide timely feedback and training in collaborative care. LRC will be provided in addition to standard collaborative care training and support
Other Name: LRC
Active Comparator: Collaborative Care
This comparator arm will consist of 10 cluster randomized federally qualified health centers who receive training in collaborative care.
Other: Collaborative Care
Standard collaborative care implementation training and support
Other Name: CC

Detailed Description:

Depression is a common and serious disorder among pregnant women but few from low income groups receive effective treatment. The highly evidence based collaborative care (CC) model for depression has been shown to work for women in pregnancy but has not been widely implemented in this population. The proposed study targets improving dissemination of the evidence based CC treatment model for pregnant and postpartum women with depression, a common disorder of the perinatal period (pregnancy and the first year following birth). Longitudinal remote consultation (LRC) is an implementation strategy that has been have shown to improve fidelity to evidence-based practices and patient outcomes for mental health innovations. We believe LRC can be used with equal benefit for complex interventions such as CC.

The purpose of this study is to compare two implementation strategies for Collaborative Care depression treatment: 1) standard implementation and 2) standard implementation + Longitudinal Remote Consultation (LRC). This research is being done in order to assess implementation and patient outcomes in sites receiving a standard implementation approach with and without LRC. The results of the proposed study will provide information on the benefits and relative value of ongoing consultation, such as LRC, for implementation of complex interventions like collaborative care.

The proposed study will involve twenty federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) providing prenatal care and which are part of the national OCHIN Network. All sites will receive a standard implementation approach. After pre-implementation training ten of the sites will be randomly selected to receive LRC. Implementation and clinical outcomes as well as costs will be compared between the study conditions after a 12 month implementation period and a 13-21 month sustainment period. The results of the proposed study will provide critical generalizable knowledge regarding the benefits of ongoing consultation for implementation of complex interventions like collaborative care.
