ChoiceOne/MedSpring, operators of more than 60 urgent care centers around the country, and life sciences company Quadrant Biosciences have entered a partnership to offer a new brain health assessment service at existing locations in Maryland and Texas. Called ClearEdge, the system was developed with experts at SUNY Upstate Medical University. It essentially packages together an array of functional assessments designed to monitor and track subtle changes in cognitive function, balance, and patient symptoms over time. In addition to evaluating patients who have experienced a head injury, it will also allow patients to get a baseline measure of their brain health for comparison purposes in case they suffer an injury in the future or experience brain decline due to illness in the future. (The current issue of JUCM includes several articles on the role urgent care centers can play in assessing and caring for patients who may have experienced brain injuries.)
