AnthroTronix and Nview Health Collaboration Powers Seamless Assessment
of Cognition and Behavioral Health
— Provides Consistent Measurement of Cognitive and Behavioral Health in One Place —
SILVER SPRING, Md. – AnthroTronix and Nview Health announced today they have partnered to combine two technologies to test both a person’s cognitive function and their behavioral health. Used together, these
technologies can provide healthcare practitioners with better insight into a person’s complete behavioral health and wellness.
AnthroTronix’s DANA TM is an FDA cleared clinical neurocognitive assessment tool that uses a smartphone or tablet to measure and monitor changes in a person’s brain/cognitive function. The app can help clinicians track cognitive function for conditions such as depression, dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
“Cognitive function and behavioral health are closely linked,” said AnthroTronix CEO Cori Lathan. “Our behavioral health status effects our cognitive efficiency so to get a clear picture of a person’s brain health, it’s
important to test both. Our partnership with Nview Health now enables healthcare providers the ability to do that.”
Nview’s diagnostic instrument, the M.I.N.I. — Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview — is a short, structured diagnostic interview designed to evaluate the most common DSM-5 and ICD-10 psychiatric disorders. It enables healthcare professionals to rapidly deliver a behavioral health diagnosis and has been used in patient care and clinical research for more than 25 years. “Our partnership with AnthroTronix now allows us to measure an individual’s cognitive status, which is essential to the care and treatment of behavioral health disorders,” said Nview Health Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder Thomas R. Young, M.D.
