AUSTIN, Texas, October 19, 2023 – BrainCheck, Inc. today announced the appointment of Jennifer Cobb as Vice President of Partnerships. In this role, Ms. Cobb will spearhead BrainCheck’s efforts to establish strategic alliances with value-based care organizations, strengthening the company’s commitment to improving comprehensive cognitive care.

“We cannot address the challenges of cognitive impairment effectively until we bridge the concerning gap between its prevalence and accurate diagnosis. At BrainCheck, we are committed to closing this disparity through accessible and reliable cognitive assessments and monitoring, ensuring timely interventions for those in need,” said Kim Rodriguez, CEO of BrainCheck.
“Value-based care is at the forefront of healthcare innovation, and BrainCheck recognizes the importance of forging partnerships that align with this transformative approach. Jennifer’s proven track record of developing strategic alliances and deep understanding of government healthcare programs will be integral as we execute on our mission to optimize patient outcomes, streamline cognitive assessments, and improve the overall healthcare experience,” said Ms. Rodriguez.
