PITTSBURGH, Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ImPACT Applications, Inc. has launched ImPACT Passport™, a free mobile app allowing anyone who has taken an ImPACT neurocognitive test to provide test results to health care professionals, record symptoms and locate a care provider.
The app is most useful for those with a Passport ID - a secure personal identification code assigned to each test taker at the completion of an ImPACT baseline test. Providing the Passport ID to an approved healthcare professional grants the healthcare professional immediate access to testing data and symptom records. Test takers will not have access to actual testing data.
"A Passport ID allows ImPACT test results to be mobile," says Michael Wahlster, chief executive officer of ImPACT Applications. "If a concussion is suspected, an individual can use the Passport app to locate the nearest Passport Trained healthcare provider and give the provider immediate access to critical testing data by providing a Passport ID. Passport revolutionizes the accessibility of ImPACT test data for both healthcare professionals and test takers."
The Passport app is available for iOS and Android users. The app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
Qualified medical professionals who complete free training will be designated Passport Trained and will be able to see anyone who has taken an ImPACT test, no matter where the baseline or post-injury test was administered. There is no charge to become a Passport Trained provider.
