Overview
This report tracks the Percentage of patients 18 years of age and older who were treated with antidepressant medication, had a diagnosis of major depression, and who remained on an antidepressant medication treatment.

Two rates are reported.

  • A. Percentage of patients who remained on an antidepressant medication for at least 84 days (12 weeks).

A patient will be in the numerator when they have all of the following:

  • Numerator 1- An Antidepressant medication prescribed for at least 84 days (12 weeks) (This will be calculated when the medication has a Start Date, is made Inactive, and has an End Date.)
