What is QbCheck?
QbCheck is a revolutionary telehealth tool designed to assess ADHD symptoms objectively. Utilizing a simple webcam setup, QbCheck allows for convenient and accurate testing from the comfort of your home or office. This state-of-the-art technology measures attention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity, providing an objective overview of ADHD symptoms. By integrating QbCheck into our assessment process, we offer a more comprehensive understanding of each individual's ADHD profile, aiding in more targeted and effective treatment planning.
The QbCheck Process and What to Expect
At Three Arrows Mental Health, we actively ensure that our QbCheck assessment process is thorough and straightforward, aiming to provide every patient with an accurate and comprehensive evaluation of their ADHD symptoms. This process consists of several key steps, from initial preparation to receiving the final results.
Preparing for Your QbCheck Assessment
We recommend specific preparations to achieve the most accurate results from your QbCheck assessment. Firstly, a good night's sleep before the test is crucial as fatigue can impact concentration and performance. If you are taking ADHD medication, it's important to follow your regular medication schedule unless instructed otherwise by your healthcare provider. This consistency helps in accurately assessing the medication's effectiveness. Additionally, avoiding excessive caffeine on the test day can minimize any potential impact on your ability to focus during the assessment. These simple but significant steps help set the stage for a successful QbCheck experience.
Integrating QbCheck with Personalized ADHD Care
At Three Arrows Mental Health, QbCheck is more than just an assessment tool; it's an integral part of our personalized ADHD care approach. We understand that ADHD manifests uniquely in each individual, and a one-size-fits-all strategy is impractical. We combine QbCheck's precise attention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity measurements with a detailed clinical history and other assessment tools for a comprehensive evaluation. This thorough approach ensures a holistic understanding of each patient's ADHD, allowing customized treatment plans that address specific needs and challenges
