Abstract

background Progressive cognitive deficits are the main clinical symptom of Alzheimer's disease; however, the precise recording of cognitive deficits and assessment of their progression pose major problems in patient care and early intervention. Objective What problems for care and early intervention result from the current practice of cognitive assessment of patients with memory problems? Material and methods Evaluation of current care structures, discussion of basic work, expert recommendations and current developments. results The current practice of cognitive deficits, which is temporally and spatially bound to a clinical environment, constrains the feasibility, validity and reliability of cognitive assessment and the quantification of progression. This limits the meaningful use of further diagnostic measures, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) analyzes. Recent progress in mobile app-based technologies, illustrated here with the example of the neotiv app, can help to overcome these problems. Conclusion Mobile app-based technologies can help to improve the cognitive assessment of patients with the main symptoms of memory complaints. They can reduce overuse and underuse of diagnostic and therapeutic pathways and enable a targeted and meaningful use of advanced diagnostics. In addition, they can improve risk-modifying preventive measures, identify and increase patient cognition.
