The BrainCheck CORTEX platform brings the diagnostic power of neuropsychological testing to the point of care.
BrainCheck assessments are clinically-validated, gamified assessments that take less than 15 minutes to complete. They can be administered in clinic by a technician or taken remotely by the patient in their own home—saving physician time and increasing access to a timely diagnosis and proper cognitive care.
BrainCheck conducted a pilot study with Hartford Healthcare to measure the platform’s ability to improve care and reduce costs. Four providers (representing primary care, geriatrics and neurology), administered 60 cognitive assessments using the platform, demonstrating:
With an even split between in-clinic and remote cognitive assessments, BrainCheck received an average system usability score of 85 from providers, which is considerably higher than the industry average of 68 and puts the platform in the 95th percentile for software products. And 80% of patients said they were satisfied with their experience despite the fact that many were diagnosed with dementia.
Following administration of BrainCheck, the providers at Hartford Healthcare saw an increase in triggering of appropriate further work up in both laboratory tests and imaging — 83% and 50% increases respectively.
BrainCheck increased the specificity of diagnosis from 28% specific prior to using Braincheck to 68% specific with BrainCheck. BrainCheck gives physicians the ability to distinguish dementia from other treatable conditions and offer reassurance to those with subjective memory loss.
