Quick PsychoDiagnostics Panel (QPD)
The fully automated PTI App administered QPD Quick PsychoDiagnostics Panel is THE assessment for quickly and accurately identifying psychiatric disorders. This mental health assessment is HIPAA compliant and scalable and has excellent sensitivity, specificity and has been validated against the SCID structured psychiatric interview, widely considered the gold standard for psychiatric diagnosis.
The PTI App administered QPD Panel is an automated test that patient complete on tablets, IPhones, Android devices, PCs etc, by answering true/false questions. The assessment screens for 11 DSM-5 psychiatric disorders such as major depression (MD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). It also screens for suicidality, recent physical or sexual abuse, and (optionally) danger to others. Two other features of the assessment are that it screens for a range of disorders commonly seen in primary care, including substance abuse and it can be given in client entered automated form.
After an approximately 10 minute interview, medical providers immediately receive a chart-ready assessment report with actionable information for treatment decisions. The software incorporates advanced logic and branching. Algorithms determine which questions are presented based on responses to previous questions. Patients who do not have a psychiatric disorder are not asked irrelevant questions, and patients who may have disorders are examined in depth.
The QPD Panel may be useful for alerting physicians to the possibility of psychological disorder and its subtypes, auditing patients about their unmet needs, early detection and treatment, assessing change, and assisting in teaching.
The PTI App administered QPD is the most economical, reliable and validated method to screen. With the PTI App, administering the QPD is complete, concise and cost-effective. The need for psychometrically sound, low cost screenings is essential.
