Abstract

Medication treatment algorithms have been suggested as a strategy to provide uniform care at predictable costs. The Texas Medication Algorithm Project is a 3-phase study designed to provide solid data on the usefulness of medication algorithms. In phase 1, medication algorithms for the treatment of schizophrenia, major depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder were developed. Phase 2 was a feasibility study of these algorithms, and phase 3, now underway, compares the costs and outcome in 3 groups, one using a combination of an algorithm and patient/family education, a second using treatment as usual in a clinic that uses an algorithm for a different disorder, and a third using treatment as usual in a nonalgorithm clinic.
