Now Available in office at BPC
Boston Psychiatric Care has now implemented the use of QbTest, one of the widest FDA cleared medical device that provides objective data for diagnosing and treating ADHD for patients ages 6-60.
We are excited to make this amazing technology available to our patients and the patient’s of our colleagues.
The evidence-based testing performed in our clinic is different than traditional testing that you may have seen or have familiarity with. Our practice uses QbTest to increase safety, improve the quality of care we can provide our patients, enhance our assessment visits for initial evaluation of ADHD symptoms and to help measure how our patients are responding to treatment that has been prescribed by their provider.
QbTest involves a 15 to 20 minute, nonverbal, continuous performance test that appears on the
computer. QbTest is a computer assisted attention and impulse control task and simultaneous
recording of activity using an infrared camera for very precise motion measurements. The results are
then compared to an age and gender matched normative group, and are then incorporated into the
clinical interview and rating scales to reach a more accurate diagnosis. If an ADHD diagnosis is
established, QbTest is used to help monitor the patient’s response to treatment, and aids our clinic in
achieving treatment optimization. If it is determined that you do have ADHD, follow up testing will be
required once treatment is prescribed.
We strive to individualize the care and treatment for our patients and our goal is to bring more objective
measures to the process of diagnosing and treating those with ADHD in our community. In our efforts to improve the quality of care for our ADHD patients, we are implementing objective testing throughout the treatment process to measure treatment efficacy to ensure you are getting the most out of your ADHD care.
We encourage those interested to reach out to us if interested in viewing sample reports, clinical documentation, or learn to more about how we are working to improve our patients’ outcomes and create a better view of ADHD.
If you are a clinician please click below to refer a patient for testing. There is no need to print. The form can be filled and sent electronically through our secure HIPPA compliant platform through Updox. Patient’s need not be receiving medication management at our clinic to be referred for testing. We are happy to provide reports to other prescribers and psychotherapists.
If you are a patient, please share this web page with your clinician so that they may provide you a referral.
