BrainCare is intended for use as part of a clinician-directed program. For example, in the case of a patient who experiences problems with memory and thinking following a stroke, the care scenario may consist of:
1. The physician orders a BrainCare assessment to plan home brain training activities
2. The occupational therapist (OT) performs BrainCare testing
3. The OT prints and reviews the BrainCare Data Report
4. The OT discusses the results and sets personal goals together with the patient
5. The OT uses the wizard to create a Patient Report
6. The OT completes and signs the BrainCare Patient Report. Hands report to patient and schedules next visit
7. The patient follows self-help advice in the Patient Report
8. The patient returns to the rehab professional for a follow-up visit and BrainCare evaluation
"It offers concrete data that can help identify which spheres of cognition are being affected."
“Allows easier access to cognitive assessments with good efficacy in a reasonable time frame."
“Longitudinal follow up with repeat testing sessions is also one of its strengths.”
“It's a peer-reviewed test that provides results that can be used to help improve care.”
“It allows for numeric and graphic comparisons both to 'normal' scores and also previous tests of same individual.”
“It lends the examiner credence when showing the results "in black and white.”
“Allows a more objective cognitive assessment and the results are often not obvious on interview.”
“This is a valuable tool that gives insight into current cognitive levels."
“Results are immediately available and the data can be instantly absorbed."
“People of a wide age range are able to perform this test with minimal to no computer knowledge.”
“… people appreciate having a time-efficient method of evaluating their cognition.”
“It's a convenient, on-site tool that provides a snapshot with a fair level of detail pertaining to one's cognitive abilities.”
“Provides a convenient, objective, cognitive assessment at low cost.”
“It is easy to use - it can be very time savvy”
“A more objective assessment of cognitive function”
“Good tool for establishing a baseline and tracking progress.”
