Dr. Rollman pioneered the use of Epic electronic medical record system alerts to identify patients for enrollment into clinical trials at the time of the physician encounter. He has been principal investigator on six NIH-funded R01 effectiveness trials for treating depression and anxiety that all achieved at least 100% of their target recruitment goals. These trials include the Online Treatment for Mood and Anxiety Disorders Trial, which evaluated the impact of providing a computerized cognitive behavioral therapy program and Internet support group through a collaborative care program (N=704), and the Hopeful Heart Trial, which tested the effectiveness of a “blended" collaborative care model for treating both systolic heart failure and depression (N=756).
