ImPACT Launches Passport, a Free Mobile App That Will Revolutionize the Accessibility of Neurocognitive Test Data

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.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, shared examples from a wide range of industries – including en...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
