Course Description:

A multi-disciplinary enterprise-wide concussion care path has been established by the Cleveland Clinic to standardize the treatment approach and outcomes for all patients with concussion. Key to its success was the standardization of outcome measures used by all disciplines across the spectrum of concussion care. An iPad application was developed to assist with this standardization process and to ensure accurate documentation of each individual's status and progress, from baseline to recovery. The app is a part of the comprehensive assessment completed for athletes at baseline, serially during their course of recovery, and integrated into the clinical practices of ATCs, PTs and physicians. It consists of an incident report used to document the demographics and immediate results of the injury, and modules to assess symptoms, balance, information processing, working memory, and visual-vestibular function. Postural stability is quantified within the app as the patient is instrumented with the iPad during performance of the Balance Error Scoring System. Data from the accelerometer and gyroscope within the iPad capture the individual's anterior-posterior and mediolateral sway, providing an objective measure of balance.
