Abstract: The following document is a systematic review regarding the usage of Information and Communication Technologies in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). For this a thorough search in five different online databases until September 2019 was done. A total of 348 articles were found in which duplicates were discarded. After using the inclusion and exclusion properties a total of 21 final published articles since the year 1995 until the year 2018 were left. In the articles the methods to procure the necessary data, the different types of created or used technologies and the outcomes were investigated. Different technologies like databases for tests or researches, controlled environments like virtual environments or physical environments to test reactions or different behaviors, web pages, social media, video games like internet games or virtual reality games and other empirical researches were found. Some interesting suggestions to help both components, meaning Computer Technology and OCD, arose regarding this systematic review for future researches.
