An App to Help Doctors Diagnose Dementia

An App to Help Doctors Diagnose Dementia | image | Scoop.it
There is an app to make every part of life simpler. And this one helps doctors do their job.

 

Doctors can now reduce process of testing for dementia from three years to 10 minutes.

 

Cantab, a new iPad app from Cambridge Cognition, is designed to help early diagnoses of dementia. The technology, based on testing developed at the University of Cambridge, is designed to be easy for patients to use.

 

Cantab is available in 20 language, with options to encrypt test results for printing or including in a patient’s file.

The company warns that Cantab is only meant to aid preliminary diagnosis and is not a comprehensive recommendation. The test tracks scores for both mood and functional impairment, which give doctors a better idea of how to proceed with screening and treatment.

Rickey Jones's curator insight, July 14, 2013 6:36 PM

Expect to see a proliferation of these kind of mobile apps geared to health care delivery, health care providers or provider organizations, and available for Windows 8 in addition to iOS and Android mobile devices. This trend may cause some discruption in the medical device industry unless that industry shifts its resources to extended range real-time medical sensor development. Traditional centralized hospital telemmetry may be shadowed by nurses wearing very lightweight devices near waistt and a single headphone/mic in their ear allowing them to hear alarms from medication pumps, cardiac monitor flat line or lead dislodge detect, O2 SAT drops,BP deviations outside baseline for the individual patient, patient assistance calls, etc on the entire floor. Nurses need to be able to request assistance from other team members using handsfree communication. Nurses must be able to triage multiple alarms as they do now. Improved reliability and hardening of wireless protocols currently implemented in hospital settings or new ones will be required. The need for adequate staffing levels to ensure patient safety and effectively manage quality of care will not diminish.The length of time for pending alarms will be recorded and trended. Nursing staff should have the option to replay alarm location and time or automated message and save it but not delete it. This will make for a quieter environment for non-ambulatory patients thus an improved patient care experience. Notably, Kaiser Permanente is partnering with app developers who can show evidence of commercial marketability and investing in those innovative fledgling startups.

This is absolutely wonderful. To think the same device we use to make a call or take a photo with can actually help people's mental well being by aiding these doctors- Justine Pearce
