Integration of Mental Health/Substance Abuse and Primary Care

Evidence Reports/Technology Assessments - Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (US)

Version: October 2008


A summary of the search results is presented in Figure 2. We retrieved 1,110 unique citations from the search. After review of titles, abstracts, and full articles when necessary, we identified 33 studies and 145 companion articles that tested for the impact of integrating mental health and primary care on outcomes. Appendix E provides an evidence table for all relevant trials. However, if an article reported the study design but the study is otherwise ongoing and results beyond baseline characteristics have not been reported, that study is not included in the analyses. Excluded references are shown in Appendix F.

Case Studies

We have supplemented the traditional systematic literature review with a series of case studies, which are intended to help the reader translate the research covered in the comprehensive literature review into actual clinical and administrative practices. As shown in Table 18 these case studies deliberately cover a spectrum of health care organizations, sponsorship, approaches to integrated care, and patient populations. Since IT and alcohol related substance abuse were also specific areas of interest for this review, examples of case studies which featured IT or alcohol related treatment are also identified.
