Neurologists Make Evidence-Based Decisions With CBS Health Cognitive Assessments

Cognitive deficits are a symptom of many of the disorders neurologists treat, and cognitive assessments provide important behavioural information to complement medical tests, patient history, and brain imaging. For many neurologists, existing cognitive assessments only detect severe impairment, or require multiple hours of in-person testing and specialized training. CBS Health is a quick, automated behavioural assessment of cognitive performance that compares any patient’s memory, reasoning, verbal, and attention abilities to an age-matched normative database. Assessments can be sent by email, making CBS Health ideal for neurologists doing telemedicine.

With a quantified measure of a patient’s brain health, neurologists can better identify deficits and strengths to assist in diagnosis, then track recovery as treatment progresses. CBS Health’s cognitive tasks take only a few minutes each, are scientifically linked with specific areas of the brain, and produces easy-to-read reports, making it ideal as an efficient screening tool to assist in teamwork with neuropsychologists, neurosurgeons, and other specialists to make evidence-based decisions about the best next steps for a patient.

Why Neurologists Use CBS Health to
Objectively Measure Cognitive Function

Improve Patient Care

  • Complement Diagnosis and Validate Patient Symptoms

    Easily collect a quantified and objective measure of cognitive performance to complement existing diagnosis tools for neurological conditions such as brain injuries, diseases of the central nervous system, and pain. Put numbers to patients’ subjective symptoms by quickly measuring the cognitive domains key to their quality of life, such as memory, reasoning, verbal ability, and concentration. Each CBS task score is linked with specific regions of the brain. Additional questionnaires cover mental health factors such as depression, anxiety, and attentional difficulties.

  • Assist Medication Management and Track Progress

    Collect baseline measurements, then validate that medications and other treatments are having the desired effects—or minimal side effects—on cognition and mental health. Better collaborate with neuropsychologists, psychiatrists, and other specialists by having historical cognitive performance information about your patient that can drive data-based decisions.

  • Monitor Cognition and Mental Health Over Time

    Continue tracking brain health over time to detect early signs of decline in impaired or aging populations and get ahead of long-term problems. Monitor for effects of medications that help recover cognitive function, or for unwanted side effects. As a complement to your existing testing, CBS Health is part of a complete and confident picture of a patient’s brain health.

Increase Convenience and Save Your Neurology Practice Valuable Time

  • Save Time With Faster Insights

    Avoid wasted time by quickly screening for impairment and narrowing in on the cognitive domains requiring further examination. Each CBS Health task takes only a few minutes, and reports comparing your patient’s performance to a normative database are generated immediately.

  • Reduce Manual Effort With Automated Assessments

    In any busy clinic, time is severely limited. Practitioners and admins save time and effort by automating tasks, such as sending regular scheduled assessments, maintaining and storing data, scoring and interpreting results, and finding patient reports. Some of your existing questionnaires, such as the PHQ-9 and GAD-7, can be included directly in CBS Health to save the hassle of combining reports from different platforms.

  • Modernize Your Practice and Enable Teleneurology

    Send assessments by email to save in-clinic time or reach patients where in-person care is impractical, without sacrificing validity—CBS Health cognitive tasks are based on decades of scientific research, and there are minimal differences between in-person and remotely-administered assessments.

Increase Your Neurology Practice’s Revenue

Incorporate Reimbursable Assessments

The administration and interpretation of assessments is easy to incorporate into other revenue models, and is covered by many insurance providers (for instance, Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross, Aetna, United and a variety of others, subject to the terms of the CBS Health Reimbursement Guide).

  • Reimbursable under CPT codes related to neuropsychological assessments for administering, interpreting, and delivering results of cognitive testing.
  • CBS Health has been used to complement other assessments you may be conducting to prove necessity of treatment, which may sometimes be required to gain reimbursement for your standard procedures.
  • Get funding for research, clinical trials, and legal consultation by demonstrating that your assessments are scientifically validated with decades of data and clinical use behind you.

Add New Services to Your Neurology Practice

Use CBS Health to add services that benefit patients. Some neurologists receive payment directly for services such as:

  • Preventive services, such as yearly check-ins that assess cognition and mental health, with automated schedules on a cadence you define.
  • Teleneurology, remote neurological consultation, and other virtual services, such as listing your services in portals that connect patients from all over the country with remote neurologists.
  • Research services for specialized populations that you work with; CBS Health makes it easy to collect data, and raw data is available for further analysis.

Reduce Unnecessary Spending

Cognitive capacity information from CBS Health can be gained quickly and efficiently, saving time and money in areas such as:

  • Screening to determine the need for additional, costly tests, such as full neuropsychological batteries or genetic testing. With more data at your disposal, you can stop spending time and money on dead ends.
  • Automated cognitive assessments can reduce spending on areas related to keeping in touch with patients, such as staff hours devoted to regular contact with long-term patients.

CBS Health Makes it Easy for Neurologists
to Assess Cognition

Neurological disorders often lead to cognitive deficits. CBS Health allows neurologists to quantify deficits and track recovery. Any patient with acute, chronic, or evolving impairment in cognition—or at risk for such impairments—can benefit from regular assessment of cognitive function.

Insightful Reports in Less Than 15 Minutes

Reports are powerful, yet simple and easy to read, allowing you to instantly view results and review them with your patient without extra modifications or explanations.

A customized assessment can take 15 minutes or less, and results are generated instantly—no manual scoring required.

Stay on top of important trends in your patient’s cognition over time.

Review your patients percentile rank relative to others of the same age group (ages 6+) and gender using our proprietary normative database, made up of more than 75,000 individuals.

Validity and meaningful change indicators help interpret results and explain them to patients and colleagues.

Link results with subjective patient difficulties, history, and other test results to turn “brain fog” into specific deficits that can be discussed, measured, and linked with the areas of the brain recruited by each task

Improve Patient Treatment With a Low-Pressure, Engaging, and Gamified Assessment Experience

Patients can be intimidated by rigid assessments—especially if they are already suffering from neurological disorders and associated mental health difficulties. CBS Health assessments are designed to ease patients into the tasks with a quick, game-like experience that removes the pressure.

Send links via email to allow your patients to complete assessments in the comfort of their own homes.

Start with self-guided interactive task tutorials that help ensure your patients quickly get up to speed on task instructions.

Easily customize assessments for specific patient groups—like shortening the battery, turning off sound, or adding practice rounds—to create the targeted patient experience you want.

Go Beyond the MoCA and MMSE With Continuous Measures of Cognition


Tests of mental status are valuable sources of information in a neurologist’s toolkit. However, many existing sources of information are subjective, relying on self-report, or they are designed for one specific purpose, such as screening for severe impairment. CBS Health provides objective, continuous measures that can be used to assess cognitive function in healthy patients, severely impaired patients, and everybody in between.

CBS Health also has established self-report assessments and other questionnaires built in, such as the Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) measure of depressive symptoms, the GAD-7 measure of anxiety symptoms, and the ASRS measure of ADHD. View all measures in consistent, easy-to-read reports to determine how treatments affect all the facets of mental health and cognition that are key to quality of life.
