How It Works

Doctor testing for depression in hospital

AssessMD is an electronic reimbursable mental health assessment tool used by a patient on any devicein any locationthat allows doctors to instantly identify the likelihood and severity of multiple mental health disorders before seeing the patient.

Individualized Testing for Better Patient Care

Our proprietary Symptom Level Determination Software (SLDS) is a powerful software engine capable of tabulating scores and making real-time question presentation decisions.

Unlike other testing tools, AssessMD utilizes the SLDS engine to calculate test results in real-time as the patient is completing the assessment. Patients who do not meet specific disorder criteria stop after abbreviated testing, while other patients whose scores warrant further evaluation complete additional questions. Patients meeting the DSM diagnostic criteria based on earlier test responses complete the entire questionnaire.

Instant, Accurate Results

Patients can complete their self-assessments on the tablet in as little as 2 to 4 minutes, with results immediately available for review.
