Occupational Therapists Assess Cognitive Function to Help Patients Reach Their Goals

Getting patients back to participating in daily life to their full potential is not a purely physical endeavor. Cognitive health is crucial as well—whether at work, at school, or at home, patients need to be at their best in areas such as planning, memory, verbal ability, and concentration. That is why occupational therapists use CBS Health to measure and track key areas of cognition that affect quality of life.

Therapists working with concussions, developmental disorders, and brain injuries know that validated cognitive assessments are an important part of an evidence-based approach to rehabilitation. However, any serious injury or disability has cognitive consequences—stress, inactivity, and the inability to work can all have profound effects on the brain, so it is crucial to measure brain health during assessment, recovery, and decisions about when to return to work and other activities.

CBS Health is a web-based platform that uses cognitive tasks to quantify a patient’s brain health, and can be administered in-person or as part of a telehealth program. CBS Health assessments help identify deficits associated with injury, disease, or age, and track recovery as treatment progresses. Occupational therapists use CBS to help patients of all ages reach their physical and cognitive goals.

Why Occupational Therapists Use CBS Health to
Objectively Measure Cognitive Function

Improve Rehabilitation With Cognitive Assessments

  • Validate Patient Symptoms, Complement Diagnosis, and Identify Areas of Need

    Take an evidence-based approach to rehabilitation with scientifically-validated assessments. CBS Health complements traditional neuropsychological tests and clinical observation with a quick and objective measure of the cognitive domains key to quality of life, such as memory, reasoning, verbal ability, and concentration.

  • Track the Long-Term Impact of Therapeutic Interventions

    Rehabilitation leads to better brain function, but recovery can take time. Show patients a brain health report that highlights deficits, guides rehabilitation, and reveals the positive effects of treatments. Take a baseline assessment in-clinic, then evaluate progress long-term—CBS Health assessments can be completed in the comfort of a patient’s home.

  • Get a Comprehensive View of Brain Health With Integrated Mental Health Assessments

    Mental illness is closely linked with the injuries, diseases, and chronic conditions that occupational therapists assist with every day. CBS Health allows you to easily collect self-report mental health data, like the PHQ-9 and GAD-7, alongside cognition data. Measure and compare the full impact of treatments across several key mental health domains.

Save Time and Increase Convenience In Your Occupational Therapy Practice

  • Modernize Your Practice With Telehealth Options

    Send scientifically-validated assessments by email to reach patients before, during, and after treatment. Develop long-term relationships with patients and collect data on success, automatically—perfect for practitioners and scientist-practitioners.

  • Easily Add Cognitive Assessments to Any Rehabilitation, Therapy, or Vocational Counseling Program

    Self-guided cognitive testing from CBS Health requires no specialized training to administer, and can easily add value to existing programs, or be sold as an additional service. Reduce manual effort with automated remote assessments.

  • Get Brain Insights Faster

    A traditional neuropsychological evaluation can take multiple hours. CBS Health cognitive task takes only a few minutes each, and reports are generated instantly, comparing your patient’s performance to a normative database. The powerful reports can be shared with patients and colleagues, or determine the need for further evaluations.

Increase Revenue for Your Occupational Therapy Practice

Add Cognitive Assessments as a New Service

Use CBS Health to add new services and reach new patients. Some occupational therapists receive payment directly for services such as:

  • Add-ons to existing programs, including but not limited to brain injury rehabilitation, capacity evaluations, and mental health services.
  • Incorporate new services, such as preventive or follow-up services—for example, yearly check-ins that assess cognition and mental health, especially for older adults.
  • Introduce telehealth assessment services that can reach new patients outside your geographical region.

Get Reimbursed For Assessments

The administration and interpretation of cognitive assessments is covered by many insurance providers, in addition to interventions focused on cognitive function.

  • Reimbursable under CPT codes related to neuropsychological assessments when administered by qualified professionals or technicians.
  • Improve rehabilitation with no additional cost to the patient, and potentially generate additional revenue for your practice through reimbursement.

Reduce Unnecessary Spending

Cognitive data 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; with more data at your disposal, you can stop spending time and money on dead ends.
  • Reduce staff hours spent on manually scoring tests and entering information into databases.
  • 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 Occupational Therapists to Assess Cognitive Capacity

Injuries, illness, and disabilities are closely linked with cognitive deficits. CBS Health allows occupational therapists to quantify those deficits and track recovery. Any patient with acute, chronic, or evolving impairment in cognition—or at risk for such impairments due to physical or mental health conditions—can benefit from regular assessment of cognitive function.

Insightful Patient Reports in Less Than 15 Minutes

Reports are powerful, yet simple and easy to read, allowing you to instantly share results 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 capacity over time.

Review your patient’s 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.

A validity indicator and meaningful change calculation help interpret results and explain them to your patient.

Link results with subjective patient difficulties to turn confusion and “brain fog” into specific deficits that can be discussed and measured.

Engage Patients With a Low-Pressure, Gamified, Fun Assessment Experience

Patients can be intimidated by long, rigid assessments—especially if they have already gone through other assessments, or are suffering from mental or physical health ailments. 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.

Self-guided interactive task tutorials 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 Subjective Reports With Objective Measures of Cognition

Patients often report brain-related symptoms associated with disabilities, such as difficulty concentrating, forgetfulness, or brain fog—and these subjective reports are valuable sources of information in an occupational therapist’s toolkit. CBS Health complements these reports with objective, continuous measures of cognitive performance that can be used to objectively verify these symptoms, or ease patients’ worries by verifying they are within a normal range. As treatment progresses, patients can see data-supported evidence of improvement in the areas where they have struggled, and be reassured that the improvements in brain health will result in improvements in their abilities to perform everyday activities.

CBS Health also supports mental health assessments that measure symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other conditions. Add self-report assessments and other checklists right within a CBS Health protocol, to view questionnaire data and cognitive performance measures side by side.
