AssessMD Assessments

Adult Bipolar Disorder Assessment

The AssessMD Adult Bipolar Assessment allows for quick discrimination between the different categories of Bipolar Disorder.

AssessMD recognizes that Bipolar Disorder is characterized by the presence of Manic or Hypomanic episodes that most often fluctuate with periods of Major Depressive episodes. Consequently, it is important for the clinician to have available to them the information related to a patient’s history of Major Depressive Disorder.

AssessMD utilizes our Symptom Level Determination Software to search AssessMD’s data for a patient’s history of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), if present, or initiate and evaluation for current MDD. The Depression results will be reported with the results of the Manic/Hypomanic episode evaluation.

Results will also identify self-harm or suicide risks.
