Upgrade your delivery of occupational therapy with scientifically-validated cognitive assessment 

To fully restore patients to daily life, both physical and cognitive health are essential. Occupational therapists rely on Creyos for comprehensive cognitive testing and behavioral health screening, addressing key areas such as planning, memory, verbal ability, concentration, anxiety, and depression.

Faster, more objective, insights into patient cognition

When patients set ambitious recovery goals, waiting for lengthy neuropsychological evaluations isn't always feasible. Creyos offers quick occupational therapy cognitive assessments, taking only minutes to complete and instantly generating reports comparing patient performance to a robust normative database. These reports can be easily shared with patients and other providers, helping to inform care plans or the need for further evaluation.

Track long-term impact of therapeutic interventions

Rehabilitation leads to better brain function, but recovery can take time. Show patients a brain health report that highlights cognitive impairments, guides rehabilitation, and reveals the positive effects of treatments. Take a baseline assessment in-clinic, then evaluate progress long-term.

  • Visual reports for easy provider and patient interpretation

  • Detection of meaningful change for more objective discussions

  • Tips for improving home safety and performance of everyday tasks

Long term impact

Integrated mental health assessments

Mental illness is closely linked with the injuries, diseases, and chronic conditions that occupational therapists assist with every day. Creyos allows occupational therapists to easily collect self-report mental health data alongside objective assessments for a complete picture of brain health status.

  • Standardized assessments for mental health conditions like the PHQ-9, GAD-7, PSS and more

  • Questionnaires like the IQCODE-SR for assessment of older adults

  • Inclusion of the IADL questionnaire to evaluate occupational performance

What is an occupational therapy cognitive assessment?

What is an occupational therapy cognitive assessment?

A cognitive evaluation by an OT is intended to evaluate the cognitive status of people. Occupational Therapists use assessment data to develop a treatment plan that is best suited to their specific needs.

What are common assessments used by OTs and how is Creyos different?

In occupational therapy, common cognitive tests include:

  • Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA)
  • Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE)
  • Clock Drawing Test
  • Trail Making Test
  • Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (WAIS)
  • Executive Function Performance Test (EFPT)
  • Rivermead Behavioral Memory Test (RBMT)
  • Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS)

However, these tests may lack sensitivity for mild impairments and often focus on specific areas. To get a complete picture of brain health, providers need to administer and score each one separately, which can be time consuming and introduce risk of human error. Unlike these other assessments, Creyos tasks combine features of these assessments while being more sensitive and specific. They're automatically scored, increasing reliability and enabling better measures of brain health.

What cognitive impairments does Creyos test for?

Creyos tests for cognition across four key domains:

  • Memory
  • Reasoning
  • Verbal Ability
  • Concentration

Tasks in Creyos are mapped to brain regions linked to these domains using fMRI technology, enabling providers to precisely measure a patient's ability in each area with maximum reliability.

How does Creyos support OTs using its assessment tool?

Creyos offers clients unlimited strategic and technical support to ensure success. This includes a demo and orientation to learn the Creyos platform complemented by online resources and guides. Occupational therapists are also able to access research studies and Blog articles that showcase the latest in cognitive assessment trends, helping OTs stay current.

What scientific-evidence is there of Creyos's validity?

Creyos has been used in countless research studies. The platform and its scientific underpinnings have been written about in 400 peer reviewed papers, including reports in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine, the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, the American Journal of Health Promotion and the International Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology.

Can Creyos be used for occupational therapy with stroke patients?

Yes. Creyos helps OTs assess various factors in stroke rehabilitation to help individuals regain independence and improve their quality of life.

These include:

  1. Functional abilities: Assessing a person's ability to perform activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, grooming, eating, and toileting.
  2. Cognitive function: Evaluating cognitive abilities such as attention, memory, problem-solving, and executive function to address any cognitive deficits that may impact daily functioning.
  3. Perceptual abilities: Assessing visual and spatial perception, as well as body awareness, to determine how stroke-related changes affect the person's perception of themselves and their environment.
  4. Psychological health: Addressing emotional well-being, coping strategies, and motivation to engage in rehabilitation activities and adapt to life after stroke.
