Cleveland Clinic spinoff NeuroLogix Technologies announced it will integrate its C3LogixTM concussion management system with Cerner’s HealtheAthlete health management system. The integration will enable joint clients to manage athletic injuries and improve the recognition and treatment of concussions.
HealtheAthlete, a cloud-based sports medicine and athlete health management system, enables providers to document injury, rehabilitation, conditioning and health-related events that can be accessed from a computer or mobile device almost anywhere, anytime. HealtheAthlete also provides built-in tracking and analysis tools.
The C3Logix system, developed at Cleveland Clinic and commercialized by NeuroLogix Technologies, enables physicians, athletic trainers and other trained personnel to assess the neurologic domains impaired by a concussion. A series of tests are given to an athlete at the beginning of the season to create a baseline. These same tests are given again when the athlete is injured and used to determine the extent of the injury.
C3Logix aggregates neurologic data over time that creates comparison visualizations that help trained medical practitioners determine the appropriate treatment plan for the concussed individual. C3Logix is also used by researchers to collect longitudinal data, year over year, to help improve the understanding and long-term implications of concussions.
“We have long needed to raise the bar in brain injury assessment, while leveling the playing field to provide better access to quality tools,” said Jay Alberts, Ph.D., of Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute. “Integrating data into a single athlete record will keep care teams from fumbling through multiple systems, duplicating data entry or worrying about the risk of missing information.”
