Cognition is Closely Linked With Mental Health

Mental, emotional, and behavioural disorders often have cognitive consequences. From complaints of brain fog to scientifically-proven deficits, a loss of cognitive clarity can make a patient’s recovery even more difficult, leading to a downward spiral.

CBS Health quantifies a patient’s brain health, identifying loss in capacity associated with mental health. Clinical psychologists use CBS Health to assist in clinical diagnosis of specific disorders, better target treatments based on the patient’s capacity, and track recovery over the course of treatment sessions. Assessments can be administered in person or as part of a telemedicine program.

For example, individuals who suffer from anxiety tend to score lower in CBS Health short-term memory tasks, like Spatial Span and Paired Associates. Depression can have far-reach effects on cognition, resulting in impairments that have real-life consequences, such as the planning abilities measured by the Spatial Planning task. With CBS Health, you have a window into scientifically-validated data on each cognitive domain, putting numbers to the subjective issues that cause patients to seek treatment.

Why Clinical Psychologists Use CBS Health to
Objectively Measure Cognitive Function

Inform Psychotherapy and Other Treatments

  • Objectively Measure Cognition for Evidence-Based Treatment

    Complement 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.

  • Drive Long-Term Therapy Success by Tracking Brain Health Throughout Treatment

    Validate that interventions, are having the desired effects on brain health, or detect early signs of impairment. An easy-to-read cognitive health report makes it simple to review baseline scores and track progress after in-session and out-session therapeutic work—assessments can be completed in person or in the comfort of a patient’s home.

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

    Collect self-report data using measures like the PHQ-9 and GAD-7 alongside cognition data. Measure and compare the full impact of therapy across key brain health markers.

Increase Convenience and Save Valuable Time

  • Modernize Your Practice With Telemental Health 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 Therapy Program

    Self-guided cognitive testing from CBS Health requires no specialized training to administer, and can easily add value to existing sessions, or be sold as an additional service.

  • Get Brain Insights Faster

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

Increase Revenue For Your Psychology Practice

Get Reimbursement For Each Assessment

The administration and interpretation of assessments 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, with potential reimbursement 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.

Add Online Psychotherapy and Other New Services

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

  • Preventive services, such as yearly check-ins that assess cognition and mental health.
  • Reach new patients with telemental health services, such as listing your services in portals that connect patients from all over the country with remote psychologists and therapists. CBS Health is entirely web-based and assessments can be conducted from anywhere.

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 or genetic testing; with more data at your disposal, you can stop spending time and money on dead ends.
  • Automated cognitive assessments that collect data on a schedule you define 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 Psychologists to Assess Cognitive Functioning

Poor mental health often leads to cognitive deficits. CBS Health allows clinical psychologists to quantify those 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 Patient Reports in Less Than 15 Minutes

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

Review your patient’s percentile rank relative to others of the same age group 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 “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 are already suffering from anxiety, depression, or other 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.

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 the MoCA With Objective Measures of Cognition, Complemented by Other Health Measures

Mental health assessments, and tests of mental status, are valuable sources of information in a psychologists’s toolkit. However, many assessments are subjective, relying on self-report, or they are designed for a specific purpose, such as screening for severe impairment. CBS Health provides objective, continuous measures of cognitive performance that can be used to assess brain health in struggling, recovering, and healthy patients.

CBS Health also supports adding other assessments and questionnaires, like the PHQ-9, within the same protocol, to measure and view multiple measures side by side and determine how improvements in mental health lead to objective improvements in the areas of cognition that are key to quality of life.
