ABSTRACT
Adult ADHD is a complex neuropsychiatric disorder, which is affecting the daily lives of 2-5 % of the adult population. This paper introduces a Clinical Decision Support System for diagnostics of ADHD. The introduced CDSS is currently in use in the South Karelia District of Social and Health Services (Eksote) in Finland. Eksote needed to establish the program for adult ADHD patients, and an evaluation, diagnosis and treatment process by a multi-professional team was developed. The new process was launched with tailor-made CDSS software support. The developed CDSS supports the implementation of the new adult ADHD patient evaluation, diagnosis and treatment process. The CDSS guarantees that the multi-professional team has from the start an algorithmic and extensive approach to the treatment of adult ADHD patients. The CDSS also warranted that Eksote has established a standard for the care of adult ADHD patients. The CDSS enables the possibility to make quick changes and development in the process.
