CNS Vital Signs in-office neurocognitive testing procedure is a non-invasive clinical procedure to efficiently and objectively assess a broad spectrum of brain function performance or domains under challenge (cognition stress test) and 50+ computerized clinical and quality rating instruments e.g., PQRS to enable the measuring of important clinical symptoms, behaviors, and comorbidities to ...

  • Detect and track even slight (millisecond precision) cognitive impairments that can assist clinicians in the evaluation and management of neurodegenerative, neuropsychiatric, neurotraumatic and neurodevelopmental disorders providing immediate clinical insight into a patient’s current status and level of impairment
  • Help evaluate the possibility of secondary gain e.g., academic accommodation, drug or disability seeking, malingering, symptom feigning etc. with embedded cognitive performance validity indicators
  • Give patients, family members and caregivers knowledge of cognitive domains that underpin the ability to conduct activities of daily living
  • Automate the collection of guideline recommended clinical and quality measures e.g., PQRS, recommended by professional societies and payers
  • Establish a neurocognitive baseline in each patient to use in later treatment decisions
  • Longitudinally track clinical endpoints to aid in the monitoring and management of many clinical conditions and treatments e.g., measure the response to treatment like AD/HD medication, rehabilitation efforts, cognitive behavioral therapy - CBT, etc. and used to measure clinical outcomes
  • Help identify domains needing additional or full neuropsychological evaluations

CNS Vital Signs has taken a LIFESPAN approach ... collecting a large neurocognitive normative reference group from ages 8 to 89. The normative comparison helps clinicians grade the level of neurocognitive impairment that can help rule-in or rule-out certain clinical conditions and/or determine the level of impairment.

CNS Vital Signs leading edge neurocognitive and behavioral health assessment technologies efficiently collects valid and reliable brain & behavioral clinical endpoints providing clinicians with valuable clinical endpoints that help inform the clinical relationship between brain function (central nervous system) and neurocognitive / behavioral dysfunction.

The CNS Vital Signs assessment platform has been rapidly custom configured and deployed in numerous clinical and research settings to aid and support clinical practice and research activities along the CARE CONTINUUM:

Clinicians use CNS Vital Signs as a BRIEF-CORE assessment to get a rapid or immediate read on a patient's neurocognitive status. Brain and behavioral specialists use CNS Vital Signs in combination with other valid assessments to gain a deeper knowledge and understanding of an individual patient's status and then continue using CNS Vital Signs to guide rehabilitation and patient management, track treatment or intervention outcomes, and disease progression.

CNS Vital Signs tests and auto-scored results provide the clinician with a broader spectrum of clinical domains and the sensitivity to assessing neurocognitive function is such that they often reveal abnormality in the absence of positive findings in CT and MRI scans e.g. concussion. Moreover, they can identify patterns of impairment that are not determinable through other procedures, assisting in the evaluation and management process and leading to more appropriate treatment recommendations. CNS Vital Signs supports many recently updated neurodegenerative and neuropsychiatric clinical guidelines as well as assessing neurocognition in conditions such as chemo brain, obesity, bariatric and post-surgery procedures, as well as healthy aging programs. Neurocognitive testing procedure codes are found under "Central Nervous System Assessments /Tests" category and are used with ICD-10 billing codes. Computerized neurocognitive testing procedures are clinically indicated and medically necessary when patients display signs and symptoms and/or clinicians suspect of neurocognitive and/or neurobehavioral dysfunction.

CNS Vital Signs assessment platforms enables practice efficiencies with availability on multiple computer platforms ... locally testing on Laptop or Desktop computers via software application, Web-based assessments via CNSVS Online. The CNS Vital Signs assessment technologies can also be used to add efficiency to large scale screening, patient in-takes, research activities as well as everyday practice needs. The assessment platforms are HIPAA and 21 CFR 11 compliant in maintaining the secure and systematic documentation of the clinical data.

The assessment platforms are easy to configure and use in busy clinic settings. Patients usually like taking the tests and appreciate the fact that their clinician has a tool to objectively measure their neurocognitive status and systematically collect their symptom, behavioral, and comorbidity information.

CNS Vital Signs Reports ... Dr. M. Chris Wolf formerly at the Traumatic Brain Injury Service, Martin Army Community Hospital, at Ft. Benning Georgia describes the use of the CNS Vital Signs assessment platform in his clinical practice. To learn more about WHY and HOW Dr. Wolf uses the CNS Vital Signs assessment platform CLICK HERE. CNS Vital Signs has two primary functions. One is to serve as a Brief-Core cognitive assessment, to detect, identify, and track possible impairments that may not otherwise be apparent. The second is to augment data generated from the clinical history, the examination and other psychological tests.

To get started just REGISTER, download, and install the VS4 assessment software. Each clinician will receive 5 free test session trials. If you are a current user the VS4 upgrade will retain all your current test reports and unused assessments.
