Web-based technology improves pediatric ADHD care and patient outcomes

As cases of ADHD continue to rise among U.S. children, pediatricians at busy community practices are getting a much-needed assist from a web-based technology to improve the quality of ADHD care and patient outcomes.

According to a multi-institutional study published online July 26 inĀ Pediatrics, a new web-based software program is helping reduce ADHD behavioral symptoms in children receiving care at community pediatric practices by coordinating care and ensuring patients get the most effective ADHD medications.

This is important for children with ADHD who rely on extremely busy community based pediatric practices where ADHD care is often poor — especially in the areas of medication management and monitoring, according to Jeffery Epstein, PhD, the study’s principal investigator and director of the Center for ADHD at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.
