The Center for ADHD has helped more than 250 pediatricians at over 80 community-based practices improve implementation of evidence-based ADHD care. The initial project (termed the “ADHD Collaborative”) included 221 physicians at 64 practices in Greater Cincinnati.
The intervention model was extremely successful. Evidence of improved ADHD care (Epstein et al., 2008, Pediatrics) and better child outcomes (Epstein et al., 2010, Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine) were large in magnitude.
The intervention was modified to allow dissemination of the intervention to practices nationwide. A major component of the intervention re-design was the creation of an ADHD web portal (mehealthom.com) that serves both as a clinical and quality improvement tool.
Currently an NIH-funded study spanning the entire state of Ohio is being conducted using the disseminated version of the intervention to replicate our positive findings in the context of randomized controlled trials (Epstein et al., 2011, Pediatrics). The results of this study will be forthcoming in the literature. Physicians from anywhere in the United States are able to use our intervention model to improve ADHD care at their practice.
See the myADHDportal Improvement Program page for more information.
The goal of the ADHD Collaborative is to improve functioning, quality of life and access to care for children with ADHD.
The ADHD web portal provides a web-based service to help primary care physicians incorporate the American Academy of Pediatrics evidence-based guidelines for ADHD care into a routine process for assessing and managing patients with ADHD.
