PST Awarded Computerized Screening in Healthcare Grant

We are excited to announce that PST recently received a Small Business Innovative Research grant for “CAMCI: Advancing the Use of Computerized Screening in Healthcare” (Amy Eschman, Principal Investigator, 1RC3AG037357-01). This funding opportunity is supported by funds provided to the NIH/NIA (National Institutes of Health/National Institute on Aging) under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 for a new initiative called Biomedical Research, Development, and Growth to Spur the Acceleration of New Technologies (BRDG-SPAN). This project deals with the commercialization and barriers to adoption for a cognitive screening technology to be used in primary care physician offices. In this project, we will address these barriers to adoption with the ultimate goal of providing a useful and effective resource in the detection of cognitive dysfunction to physicians, the providers of the majority of healthcare to the elderly population.

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a significant health problem in the United States, resulting in an enormous financial burden. Our goal is to provide a solution to Primary Care Physicians that does not impede on their time or budget. CAMCI is indicated for the pre-clinical screening of abnormal cognitive decline.

Computer Assessment of Mild Cognitive Impairment (CAMCI™)

PST, in collaboration with industry experts, has developed a self-administered, user-friendly screening tool designed to provide a score that represents the probability that the individual’s cognitive performance would fall within the range of MCI if tested on a comprehensive neuropsychological test battery and reviewed by expert neuropsychologists (86% sensitive and 94% specific*). This research effort was supported through a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) grant from NIH and the National Institute on Aging (#5R44AG022792-03).

CAMCI is in the commercialization phase and will be available later this year. Visit the CAMCI website for more information.
