“Building a System of Perfect Depression Care in Behavioral Health” April 2007 C. Edward Coffey

In 2001, the Division of Behavioral Health Services of the Henry Ford Health System (Detroit) launched an initiative to completely redesign depression care delivery using the Six Aims and the Ten Rules from the Institute of Medicine report Crossing the Quality Chasm. This "Perfect Depression Care" initiative, whose key goal was the elimination of suicide, entailed performance improvement activities in four domains-partnership with patients, clinical care (planned care model), access, and information flow.
