Cognetivity Neurosciences to Deploy CognICA™ at Beyond Geriatrics Clinic in Florida
The Company has Signed a Commercial Agreement to Deploy its CognICA™ Tool to Assess the Cognitive Health of Clinic Patients
Vancouver, British Columbia, May 25, 2022 – Cognetivity Neurosciences Ltd. (“Cognetivity” or the “Company”) (CSE: CGN) (OTCQB: CGNSF) (FRA: 1UB), a technology company that has created a unique brain health screening platform for use in medical, commercial and consumer environments, is pleased to announce that is has signed a commercial agreement to deploy its CognICA™ cognitive assessment tool with Beyond Geriatrics, a specialist primary and urgent care clinic (“Beyond Geriatrics” or the “Clinic”), in Clearwater, Florida. The Clinic has entered into a one-year licensing agreement with Cognetivity, with a three-year renewal option.
Founder and Chief physician of Beyond Geriatrics, Dr. Kimberley Evans, is a specialist physician with over 18 years of experience assessing, diagnosing, and treating geriatric patients. Dr. Evans commented: “Finally, I have a tool at my fingertips that quickly and accurately evaluates my patients’ cognitive function. For decades we have been primarily focused on our patients’ cardiovascular health. Now, it is time to focus on the cognitive health of all our patients and CognICA™ is making that possible in my office.”
Beyond Geriatrics’ patient population is aptly suited for the use of CognICA™ as the Clinic already screens for brain health among its high-risk geriatric patients from a cognitive perspective. Alzheimer’s disease, for example, is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States and early diagnosis and proper assessments are crucial for patients suffering from the disease and other cognitive impairments.¹ More information about Beyond Geriatrics can be found on its website: beyondgeriatrics.com.
“We are excited to add Beyond Geriatrics to our growing client roster in the United States and are proud to have an industry leader like Dr. Evans utilizing CognICA™ to help deliver better health outcomes as a result of earlier and more accurate detection of cognitive impairment,” said Dr. Sina Habibi, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Cognetivity. “The commercial rollout of the CognICA™ platform continues to gain traction quickly. We’re seeing increasing demand on a daily basis for our technology’s unique capabilities across several industry sectors in multiple territories, which gives us great confidence as we carry out our commercial expansion plans,” added Dr. Habibi.
According to the Lancet Commission, almost one billion people worldwide suffer from a mental disorder and the estimated costs of these disorders is estimated to have a global economic cost of US$16 trillion by 2030.² Early detection of brain health disorders has the potential to significantly reduce costs of care while improving patient outcomes. Cognetivity’s CognICA™ technology is a unique and highly scalable software-as-a-service solution able to accurately detect the earliest stages of the majority of major brain health disorders.
