Being able to track how a patient is doing is important.
That’s why HappyNeuron Pro allows you to access your patient’s information inside and outside of the clinic: When your patients complete exercises, either from home by themselves or with you, the data will be stored online in their file. You will then be able to review their results from anywhere and:
Read below to see how HappyNeuron Pro helps clinicians track their patients results.
Each of your patients will have an account where all the results information is accessible, as in this screen below:
As the clinician, you would pick a day your patient has performed exercises and review globally and individually how your patient performed on each exercise.
This view gives a good vision of the engagement of your patient and the compliance to the workouts.
For a more detailed report of performance, you would click the exercise you are interested in reviewing and would receive a detailed report.
This helps get qualitative data about a particular exercise.
In this example, the patient performed the memory exercise Heraldry, where users are to memorize what a coat of arms looks like and then reconstruct it. To the right, you can see the settings the clinician has chosen. To the left, you can view the patient’s performance.
The report you get from each exercise will vary as each exercise offers different kinds of feedback. In the next example, you will see a patient who has performed the executive function exercise Hurray for Change!.
This can give more details on which part of the exercise was failed or succeeded.
Similarly, you can see the settings the clinician has chosen to the right and the patient performance to the left. Notice that there are more details in the feedback report with this exercise. This is because the exercise has different elements and settings than Heraldry and targets a different area of cognition.
When reviewing a long-term patient, it can be difficult to remember what exercises they were doing and exactly when they performed them. In HappyNeuron Pro, you can search your patients results easily.
You will get a summary of the exercises your patient has done and the level they performed them at.
To view the timeline of performance and track evolution, simply click on the exercise you want to review. In this example, we will focus on Hurray for Change!.
Focusing on Hurray for Change!, I want to view the timeline of when my patient has performed this exercise and how they did.
The first graph shows each time the exercise was completed, which level was used and how the patient succeeded. This allows you to quickly see how your patient is progressing on this exercise. You can again click on any point to view the detailed report.
This gives visual information on how the patient is progressing.
As you scroll down, you will be able to view the accuracy and speed trade-off report for this exercise. This will show you the chronological progression of how quickly and accurately your patient performed this exercise over time. This helps seeing how both accuracy and response time progress and how they influence each other.
This can very helpful detecting any abnormal change in response time that can point out to issues or successes.
In addition, you can view the day to day performance as you scroll down. This will show the day, accuracy, speed, and settings for each completed exercise.
This graph provides the same information in another format.
What you will want to do is develop a report of your patient’s progress. Depending on the diagnosis and problem you are addressing, certain kinds of feedback may be more valuable than others.
If you have a patient with neurodegenerative disease, viewing the timeline of results would be informative of how their disease is affecting them.
For a patient in the acute stages of care from a stroke, looking at a daily report for a few weeks would inform you of how they are doing and whether they may need to stay in the hospital longer.
Overall, it is important for you to discuss with your patient how they are doing and what they are getting from at-home practice.
Asking questions such as:
By asking these questions, your patient will be able to think about what they are doing in therapy and have a metacognitive approach to problem solving.
This will allow them to connect what they are doing in the program to their everyday life.
It was just enjoyable to see the results right at the moment. So once a patient is done with the group, I was able to get the results immediately and see what they did well on and what needed to still be improved. HappyNeuron Pro is just easy and accessible.
