Description

The Boston Cognitive Assessment (BoCA) is a self-administered online test intended for longitudinal cognitive monitoring. BoCA uses random not- repeating tasks to minimize learning effects. BoCA was developed to evaluate the effects of treatment in longitudinal clinical trials and available gratis to individuals and professionals.

BoCA includes eight subtests in the following domains: Memory/Immediate Recall, Memory/Delayed Recall, Executive function/ Visuospatial, Executive function/ Mental rotation, Attention, Mental math, Language/Prefrontal Synthesis, and Orientation. The maximum total score is 30. Higher score indicates better cognitive performance.

After BoCA is completed, the domain scores and total score are provided immediately. Users will also receive an email with the link to the full report with progress charts.

The BoCA evaluation can help doctors figure out if an underlying condition is causing a patient's cognitive decline. Many treatable conditions such as sleep disorders, mood problems, heavy metal accumulation, as well as lack of movement and social interactions can affect memory and thinking.

Our goal is to reduce barriers for patients to receive the testing that may benefit their treatment and health through the use of digital technology.
