The DEmentia identification COmputerized DEcision support system (DECODE) is an evidence-based computerized decision support system designed for healthcare professionals to help them identify patients likely to have dementia quickly and more accurately. The system uses patient data from around the world and advanced computational and statistical methods and is considerably more accurate than the current ‘gold standard’ cognitive assessments.
