Healthcare IT News Covers Rx.Health’s Partnership with BrainCheck

In advance of World Mental Health Day, Healthcare IT News recently reported on Rx.Health’s recent strategic partnership with leading cognitive digital therapeutic app provider BrainCheck. As a result of the partnership, BrainCheck’s products will now be fully integrated onto Rx.Health’s RxUniverse Digital Medicine Prescribing Platform, which enables physicians to prescribe evidence-based mobile apps, multi-media education, wearables, and customized care plans for various diseases, procedures and surgeries at the point of care.

Experts estimate that up to 40 percent of people with Alzheimer’s disease suffer from depression. Cognitive impairment and mental health conditions often go hand-in-glove, with depression leading to difficulty “thinking” and impaired cognition leading to depression. Because both cognitive and psychiatric conditions can lead to decreased quality of life, it is critical to assess cognitive function in all mental health patients.

“Through our partnership with Rx.Health, we are now able to reach thousands of patients and providers in healthcare systems around the world,” said Dr. Yael Katz, co-founder and CEO of BrainCheck. “This signals a substantial step toward delivering on our promise of making a cognitive health assessment a routine part of healthcare.”

BrainCheck was conceptualized and spun out of the Baylor College of Medicine, where co-founder Dr. David Eagleman pioneered the vision of empowering patients to take control of their cognitive health with intuitive, interactive assessments. Widely recognized as a visionary in the field of neuroscience for over 20 years, Dr. Eagleman is also a New York Times best-selling author, a TED speaker, and the creator and host of the Emmy-nominated PBS series “The Brain.”

“If you’ve got your toe in the water of Digital Medicine, you’re aware that the application of digital therapeutics to cognitive wellness is tremendous and absolutely necessary,” said Pavan Choksi, who heads corporate development at Rx.Health. “BrainCheck not only represents the gold standard in this space, but also shares a similar ethos with Rx.Health as a data-driven company born out of a top academic medical center.”

Rx.Health CEO Ed Berde recently joined eHealth Radio Network host Eric Michaels to talk about Digital Medicine and the RxUniverse platform. Berde was excited to discuss the company’s rebrand, and explained how important the “Rx” symbol was to the company as we move into the future of patient care by prescribing Digital Medicine.

Berde also defined Digital Medicine for Michaels and the audience as all of the mobile health apps, wearables and digital therapeutics that have undergone clinical trials and studies to prove that they can improve patient health outcomes.

“Digital Medicine is so powerful because these apps have been clinically proven to improve health outcomes during those 1,000 hours they are not with the doctor,” Berde said.

Rx.Health continues to gain media attention as the company grows and works to establish the field of Digital Medicine. Check back on our website to stay up to date on Rx.Health, the prescribers of Digital Medicine.
