A technology enabled concussion care pathway reduces costs and enhances care - Alberts JL, Modic MT, Udeh BL, Zimmerman N, Cherian K, Lu X, Gray R, Figler R, Russman A, Linder SM.

BACKGROUND: The standardization of care along disease lines is recommended to improve outcomes and reduce healthcare costs. The multiple disciplines involved in concussion management often results in fragmented and disparate care. A fundamental gap exists ...

Quanterix has reached another step in its goal to advance a blood-based test to detect concussions in athletes. The Billerica, MA-based company said researchers have successfully applied the Single Molecule Array (Simoa) technology to generate data on the value of blood biomarkers as research tools to study pathophysiological mechanisms of concussion and as potential clinical tools and objective indicators for sports-related concussions (SRCs) and mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBIs). Results have been published in JAMA Network Open, demonstrate the promise of blood biomarkers to serve as clinical tools for objectively id...
