san franciscoSan Francisco. Savonix, the developer of the first mobile evidence-based digital neuro-cognitive assessment and brain health platform, announced today a partnership with Community Health Resource Center (CHRC), a non-profit and affiliate of California Pacific Medical Center and Sutter Health, to offer free cognitive screenings beginning on Wednesday, October 4, 2017, as part of current community-based health screenings to the San Francisco community.The ongoing screenings will be held from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. every first and third Wednesday of the month at 2100 Webster Street, a CHRC pilot site. The screenings are planned to expand to four additional sites throughout San Francisco within the next few months.The Savonix assessment, which evaluates critical cognitive data, will be administered by the Savonix virtual clinician and delivered within healthcare settings to patients and their providers. These community screenings will be overseen by the nursing staff at CHRC to provide educational materials about healthcare-related concerns, brain health and caregiving.The cognitive tests will be a 30-minute, digital assessment that consists of gold standard neuropsychological tasks. CHRC currently offers free, health screens to the local San Francisco community, that include cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure and BMI evaluations and is looking forward to expanding its free community screens to include cognition.“Savonix is excited to partner with Community Health Resource Center, and serve as the digital cognitive screening platform for five different healthcare screening sites throughout San Francisco,” said Savonix CEO, Dr. Mylea Charvat. “Through the Savonix Mobile App, providers are able to assess, track and understand a patient’s cognitive health and gain valuable insights into the role of cognition in a wide variety of diseases and disorders. This ultimately allows clinicians to build treatment plans based on an individual’s specific needs.”Erica Eilenberg, MPH, RD, Program Director at CHRC, said: “We look forward to offering an additional level of health monitoring through Savonix’s application to provide the San Francisco Bay Area with access to information about their cognitive function and brain health. Our partnership with Savonix will help further our mission of empowering individuals with the knowledge they need to live healthier lives.”
The cognitive results are not a diagnosis and individuals who score below the normal threshold, as well as those who still have concerns, are encouraged to see their primary care physician for a thorough evaluation.The community-based health and cognitive screens are funded by Chevron.
