Atrial fibrillation (AF), the most common arrhythmia with clinical significance, is a serious public health problem. Yet a number of studies show that current AF management is suboptimal due to a knowledge gap between primary care physicians and evidence-based treatment recommendations. This gap is caused by a number of barriers such as a lack of knowledge about new therapies, challenges associated with multi-morbidity, or a lack of patient engagement in therapy planning. The decision support tools proposed to address these barriers handle individual barriers but none of them tackle them comprehensively. Responding to this challenge, we propose AFGuide -- a clinical decision support system to educate and support primary care physicians in developing evidence-based and optimal AF therapies that take into account multi-morbid conditions and patient preferences. AFGuide relies on artificial intelligence techniques (logical reasoning) and preference modeling techniques, and combines them with mobile computing technologies. In this paper we present the design of the system and discuss its proposed implementation and evaluation.
