ImPACT© Workplace removes subjectivity from return-to-work decisions
ImPACT Applications, Inc., developer of the ImPACT© Test and the ImPACT Concussion Management Model, has released a neurocognitive assessment product for businesses, corporations and occupational medicine. ImPACT© Workplace - the latest addition to ImPACT's widely acclaimed line of products - is designed to provide employers, healthcare providers, and wellness professionals with an empirically validated, reliable and valid procedure for evaluating the neurocognitive status of their employee or patient.
ImPACT Workplace offers corporations an efficient, convenient and cost effective way of incorporating neurocognitive evaluation into their health and wellness programs, critical employee evaluations, or return to work protocols. Since ImPACT Workplace removes subjectivity from the decision process, it is ideal for post-injury job accommodation determinations and return-to-work decisions.
More and more companies are realizing that healthy neurocognitive functioning of their employees can play a crucial role in workplace efficiency and productivity. "Typically, companies have focused their wellness-at-work programs on reducing physical risk factors such as smoking, obesity, and diabetes," said Michael Wahlster, chief executive officer of ImPACT Applications. "Forward thinking companies are turning their attention to assessing neurocognitive status as part of these wellness programs, as well as using it to help guide management decisions."
ImPACT Applications, Inc. is the maker of ImPACT® (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Test), the most widely-used and most scientifically-validated computerized concussion management tool available and the newly-launched ImPACT Pediatric, both the first of their kind to earn FDA clearance. More than 7,400 high schools, 1,000 colleges and universities, 900 clinical centers, 475 Credentialed ImPACT Consultants, 200 professional teams, and select military units choose ImPACT to assist in the management of concussion. Since 2006, ImPACT has been administered more than 12 million times.
