Neuropsychologists have known for decades how to accurately assess individuals for cognitive and emotional function. Yet, more than eighty years after the first such tests were developed, billions of people, worldwide, do not have access to these powerful tools. My startup company, Savonix, lowers the barrier of entry to these methods by digitizing and democratizing access, enabling population health level assessment and utilization of critical cognitive data.
The timing of our product to market is perfect. Healthcare organizations are challenged to meet new behavioral health and cognitive screening mandates for over 120M newly insured patients under the ACA. There is a dearth of clinicians trained to conduct neurocognitive screenings and traditional analog screening is very expensive to administer, score, interpret and integrate into other clinical patient information for diagnostic purposes. Savonix, has developed and beta tested its mobile application for assessing cognition across multiple domains based on thousands of users ages 6 through 90 years old. Savonix Mobile replaces expensive pen-and -paper testing administered by clinicians and reduces the typical 8 to 10 hour testing period to 30 minutes. All you need is a smart device. Patients share their results with doctors who can review results via a web-based enterprise HIPAA-compliant dashboard. Clinicians lower their screening costs and generate revenue under CPT 96103.
Savonix also delivers customer-specific, aggregated, normative cognitive data sets for population health analytics and plans to create the world's first Big Cognitive Data set. Savonix Mobile is accessible, affordable, accurate and research-based. Savonix delivers clinical-grade mobile neurocognitive assessments to healthcare organizations, pharmaceutical companies, researchers conducting clinical trials, Long Term Care companies and clinical practices.
Savonix Mobile delivers psychometrically validated results in multiple domains of cognitive and emotional function at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional clinician administered tests. Built by a team of veteran software developers, and led by former Stanford healthcare professionals, Savonix Mobile is the only mobile, evidence-based, scientifically valid, digital cognitive assessment on the market today.The evidence-based screening is a 30-minute assessment accessed from any smart phone or mobile device for $40. Along with assessment results, Savonix will provide mobile tools and exercises that augment specific areas for support, improvement and overall brain health.
Savonix assess the following cognitive domains: Instant Verbal Memory,
(short-term learning and memory of language); Focus (ability to suppress automatic responses to follow one specific direction); Emotion Identification (ability to register a range of emotions quickly to understand and empathize with others; Executive Function
(ability to process and keep track of information to guide reasoning, planning, learning, and comprehension); Delayed Verbal Memory (long-term learning and memory of language); Impulse Control (ability to resist immediate urges and self-monitor to achieve delayed gratification); Information Processing (ability to scan and process information quickly); Flexible Thinking (ability to switch attention quickly and smoothly between tasks); Attention (ability to sustain attention continuously through a task; Spatial Memory (ability to remember and reproduce patterns, orientations, and relative sizes of objects); and Working Memory (ability to temporarily store and manipulate information).
