Self-Report Data Shows More Inaccuracy than Expected
Standard clinical care relies on self-reports to aid in assessment and management. A recent study by ORCATECH researchers examined the relationship between self-report and sensor-based measures of activity, and found that nearly a quarter of participants did not report activity that matched sensor firings. The findings suggest that capture of real-time events with unobtrusive activity monitoring may be a more reliable approach to describing behavioral patterns and meaningful changes in older adults.

Computer Use May Predict Cognitive Impairment
A recently published an article in Alzheimer's & Dementia highlights ORCATECH research where more than 230,000 computer sessions from 113 computer users (mean age, 85 years; 38 with Mild Cognitive Impairment, or MCI) were acquired during a mean of 36 months. Results indicate that computer use change can be monitored unobtrusively and may help to detect individuals with MCI.
