New app for dementia assessment
Date:3/12/2013

A team of clinicians from Sydney, Australia and Plymouth, UK, have taken the paper-based Addenbrooke's Cognitive Examination (ACE-III), one of the most popular and commonly-used screening tools for dementia and translated it into app form for more accurate assessment and wider use within the clinical team.

ACEmobile is the name of the app and it uses the latest version of ACE (ACE-III). It will be launched at the Healthcare Innovation Expo 2013 in London on 13thMarch and will be available a few months later. The developers intend ACEmobile to be made available free of charge to dementia clinicians around the world via iTunes and Google Play.

The development of ACEmobile has been a collaboration between Professor John Hodges (Neuroscience Research Australia), Dr Rupert Noad (Derriford Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust) and Dr Craig Newman (Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry) . It has been supported by the National Institute for Health Research Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care in the South West Peninsula (PenCLAHRC).

ACEmobile has been developed by clinicians for clinicians. It provides a sensitive, reliable, secure and easy-to-administer dementia assessment tool that can be used by a wide range of medical and other healthcare staff.

The ACEmobile has been designed to ensure that the assessment is effortless to administer. The administration instructions are embedded within the app, which means that the clinical team no longer need to refer to a manual. This means it is much easier to accurately and reliably deliver the assessment with patients.

With one tap of a button the ACEmobile automatically scores and produces automated reports, making it easy for clinicians to obtain the information they need. It will also support the routine collection of data, which will be valuable for individual clinical teams to be able to audit their own dementia assessment p
