TestSmartRx

PROBLEM Time constraints on primary care physicians make cognitive assessment in the Medicare Annual Wellness Visits cumbersome and costly.

SOLUTION Let TestSmartRx provide psychometric assessments of cognitive functioning by placing a technician in your office. Using the information from these tests can also increase revenue flow to your practice.



Healthier Patients, Healthier Practice

TestSmartRx provides the clinician with a standardized quantitative view of his patients’ neurocognitive status that is valid, reliable, and objective. Re-testing at set intervals, as well as after changes in medication and treatment, facilitates monitoring and enables a longitudinal view of a patient’s condition. This longitudinal monitoring helps guide interventions, while creating a secure registry to measure treatment and clinical outcomes.


The process works like this:

  • The Primary Care Physician (PCP) writes a standing order that all patients will receive a Murray Questionnaire and that any patient answering positively to the Murray Neurocognitive Questionnaire will be tested that day.
  • Each patient receives the Murray Questionnaire in the waiting room and completes the brief survey.
  • PCP reviews Questionnaire and refers patients who answer positively to same-day testing at the TestSmartRx station in the office.
  • If needed, preliminary test results are available for immediate review at the time of the original office visit.
  • The patient is scheduled for a follow-up in one week to discuss test results and to effectively integrate the information into their treatment plan.
  • Once the test results are received, the PCP bills for integration of information as well as diagnosis, usually within 48 hours.
  • Need for further testing is determined by the PCP, and test results are tracked to determine effectiveness of treatments.
