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.
