This paper reviews the concepts of population-based care and disease management of major depression. Population-based care and disease management strategies motivated by health care reform provide approaches for organizing health services to lower the prevalence of common medical and psychiatric illnesses in primary care populations. We apply these concepts to the organization of services for patients with major depression.
