Sleep disorders are a major problem in today's society with a lack of sleep being associated with lost productivity and accidents. There is a need to improve the sleep disorder diagnosis process and this paper describes the work in progress for the development of a patient data gathering system and decision support system. This system is designed to support a sleep physician’s diagnosis of sleep disorders. To facilitate acceptance by physicians a participatory research approach to development was taken, involving physicians and a psychologist. This approach has produced a system which integrates into a physician's work flow.
