The BCAT® Approach
Backed by science, easy to use, impactful results
Assessment Tools for Professionals
The BCAT® Test System is comprised of six unique assessment instruments that provide objective measures in the areas of cognition, practical judgment, and mood. These tests can be used alone or together to identify each patient’s cognitive functioning and to predict the ability to perform ADL and IADLS tasks. Adequate cognition and judgment are essential to successful chronic care management, and to demonstrate the health literacy skills needed to make healthcare related decisions.
Intervention Tools and Clinical Programs for Providers
The BCAT® Interventions include evidence-based tools that right-size care for patients across the cognitive spectrum and leverage The BCAT® Working Memory Exercise Books to address deficits in attention, memory, and executive function. These cognitive areas are essential for completing functional tasks and maximizing independence. Programming tools include our prescriptive treatment protocols and the Strategic Management of Acute Rehab Transitions (SMART™) tool used to identify residents at greater risk for hospital re-admission.
Brain Health Programming for Patients and Consumers
Using the Transitions in Care Program, you will have the necessary resources to create a safe and sustainable discharge plan based on each patient’s level of cognition and functional abilities. In order to ensure each person has their own cognitive wellness plan, visit the ENRICH® Brain Health program at www.enrichvisits.com for free resources for patients and families. There, you will find useful tools that engage patients in cognitively stimulating activities that support a brain-healthy lifestyle.
The BCAT® Test System and BCAT® Interventions are used by acute care centers to identify where in the cognitive continuum a patient is functioning in general, and in terms of specific cognitive domains (e.g., memory, executive functions) that predict function. The BCAT® tools are evidence-based and used in acute care settings across the nation and internationally to optimize clinical outcomes and successful transitions in care. SMART Program, a feature of the BCAT® Approach is rapidly becoming the standard in acute care for reducing at-risk patients for rehospitalization. has tools for clinicians in acute care and throughout post-acute care.
Empirical studies confirm that implementation of the BCAT® Approach results in better, faster functional outcomes for aging adults.
