Description

The Symptom Driven Diagnostic System for Primary Care (SDDS-PCTM) is a new computerized clinical procedure to assist primary care physicians in diagnosing mental disorders during the course of routine practice, It has three components: (1) a 5-minute patient-administered 16-item screening questionnaire, (2) six 5-minute physician-administered diagnostic interview modules based on DSM-III-R criteria, and (3) a longitudinal tracking form, The SDDS-PCTM covers five disorders (major depression, panic disorder, alcohol abuse or dependence, generalized anxiety disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder) as well as suicidal ideation. Patients who screen positive for a disorder receive the corresponding diagnostic interview module, Patients who meet mental disorder criteria on the diagnostic interview module are then followed with the longitudinal tracking form, Minor or subsyndromal conditions are also addressed at the physician's discretion, This article describes the development of SDDS-PCTM and summarizes results from two studies which involved comparisons between the SDDS-PCTM and independently administered full-length structured diagnostic interviews.
