Drawing on findings by the Medical Outcomes Study, Wells (psychiatry, UCLA) examines the effects of the changing US health-care system on the mental health field…[while] exploring the inefficiencies of both the prepaid and fee-for-service systems.SciTech Book News

The importance of this book to our understanding of not only the diagnosis and treatment of depression, particularly in primary care, but also health policy and reimbursement procedures, cannot be underestimated. It is a landmark publication, authored by the group in the United States with the greatest expertise in this very important area.—A. John Rush, M.D., Southwestern Medical Center, University of Texas

The authors’ detailed explanations for particular methodologic decisions make their work a valuable primer for others contemplating similar research and struggling to resolve its inherent dilemmas. The Medical Outcomes Study, on which the book is based, is unique and unlikely to be replicated in its totality; that the authors could capture its purpose, findings, and implications in a single book surely is a tour de force.—Herbert C. Schulberg, Ph.D., Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, University of Pittsburgh
