Quadrant Biosciences Inc. and ChoiceOne/MedSpring Urgent Care Enter Partnership to Offer Unique Brain Health Assessments
SYRACUSE, N.Y., June 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Quadrant Biosciences Inc. ("Quadrant Biosciences"), a Life Science company focused on functional assessment tools and epigenetic biomarkers for brain health and ChoiceOne/MedSpring, a leading Urgent Care provider, are partnering to offer a new brain health assessment at ChoiceOne/MedSpring centers in Maryland and Texas. The ClearEdge Brain Health Toolkit will be available to patients at select ChoiceOne/MedSpring centers in the Baltimore and Dallas-Ft Worth areas starting June 1.
ClearEdge, developed in cooperation with researchers and clinicians at SUNY Upstate Medical University, is a collection of functional assessments designed to monitor and track subtle changes in cognitive function, balance and patient symptoms over time. ChoiceOne/MedSpring will offer ClearEdge assessments for patients who wish to establish baseline measures of their brain health, or who have just experienced a head injury. The initial ClearEdge assessment will be useful as a comparative point to both track patients' brain health over time and, in the event of an injury such as a concussion, help assess recovery.
ChoiceOne/MedSpring collectively owns and manages over 50 urgent care centers in Texas, Maryland, Georgia, Illinois and Massachusetts, making them one of the largest urgent care organizations in the country. Dr. Scott Burger, ChoiceOne/MedSpring CMO, explained why they are excited about the partnership with Quadrant Biosciences and their ClearEdge toolkit. "ClearEdge provides an objective and reliable way of assessing cognitive function and balance, as well as symptoms, in an efficient manner," said Dr. Burger. "Adopting technologies like ClearEdge not only facilitates our goal of creating an integrated healthcare experience that includes primary care physicians and specialists, it furthers our overarching mission of delivering superior care that improves the quality of life of every patient, and setting the standard by which others in the healthcare industry are judged."
The initial roll out of ClearEdge will begin June 1 at select centers in Dallas-Ft Worth, Texas and Baltimore, Maryland.
