Patients with increased functional connectivity between the brain’s different regions who had also experienced childhood trauma had a subtype of depression that was non-responsive to treatment by SSRIs drugs. Specifically, the brain’s functional connectivity in regions involving the angular gyrus — played a large role in determining whether SSRIs were effective in treating depression.
On the other hand, the other two subtypes — where the participants’ brains did not show increased connectivity among its different regions or where participants had not experienced childhood trauma — tended to respond positively to treatments using SSRIs drugs. (Source: psychcentral.com)

“We joined CIMS as a very small FQHC around 10 years ago.  We had limited expertise and leverage to negotiate with payers.  The financial and clinical integration provided through CIMS has been invaluable over the last decade as we’ve grown to one of the largest centers in our state.  We’ve come a long way with our level of knowledge and expertise within our center, but we still need CIMS and benefit greatly from the relationship.”
