Patient Alerts has developed a PHQ-9 Screening Tool to be used in a Clinical System.
The PHQ-9 is a multipurpose instrument for screening, diagnosing, monitoring and measuring the severity of depression.
The PHQ-9 incorporates DSM-IV depression diagnostic criteria with other leading major depressive symptoms into a brief self-report tool.
Patient Alerts has developed a PHQ9A Screening Tool to be used in a Clinical System.
The patient health questionnaire is based on DSM-IV diagnostic criteria and has been validated in primary care, obstetrics and gynecological patient populations. A shorter version of the PHQ-9 is useful in research settings and is also discussed in the article.
As PHQ-9 depression severity increased, there was a substantial decrease in functional status on all 6 SF-20 subscales. Also, symptom-related difficulty, sick days, and health care utilization increased.
