12th December, 2013 -- mehealth™ for ADHD, a software tool developed by Dr Jeff N. Epstein and his colleagues at the world-renowned Cincinnati Children's Hospital in conjunction with Optimal Medicine, launches today.

mehealth™ for ADHD is designed to help clinicians provide high quality ADHD care. This is achieved by closer monitoring of patient outcomes, improved communication with parents and teachers, and faster assessments and turnaround times.

The authors of a large randomized trial, involving over 700 patient charts, concluded that the product is: “A quality improvement intervention that … significantly improved the quality of ADHD care in community-based pediatric settings.”

Survey results included:

- 93 per cent of physicians reported that they were satisfied or very satisfied with the software

- 96 per cent of physicians reported that they would recommend the software to other physicians

Use of the software significantly improved uptake of American Academy of Pediatrics (APP) recommended care practices, including the collection of parent and teacher rating scales.

Other key benefits of the product are that it enables quicker and more accurate billing, and it contributes to American Board of Pediatrics Maintenance of Certification (part 4) credits and 20 performance improvement credits, as recognized by the American Medical Association.

Dr Janet Munro, Chief Executive Officer at Optimal Medicine, comments: “As clinicians we understand that practice guidelines are valuable in supporting the best possible clinical care. However, research shows that AAP guidelines, for the care of children with ADHD, are not being applied reliably due to implementation challenges.” Munro continues: “Taking this into consideration, mehealth™ for ADHD has been developed and successfully facilitates best practice care for each individual child, by supporting clinicians in the challenges they face with diagnosis, treatment and monitoring.”

mehealth™ for ADHD provides clinical decision support that enables clinicians to deliver individualized quality care, and optimize clinical outcomes, for children with ADHD.

mehealth™ for ADHD is a product of Optimal Medicine Inc., a personalized medicine company. Optimal Medicine Inc. is devoted to developing comprehensive suites of clinical decision support software to improve efficiency and clinical outcomes, whilst assisting physicians in the delivery of consistent, high quality, individualized care. Located in Marlborough, Massachusetts (USA), www.optimalmedicine.com
