Did you know that every year in the United States approximately 2.8 million people sustain a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?
Of that number, nearly 90% are diagnosed with a TBI, treated, and released from an emergency department. Yet life after a TBI can be drastically different. Long after leaving the hospital many TBI survivors are left with lingering symptoms and an unpredictable recovery due to the existing gaps in understanding and a shortage of TBI research.
This is where the Power of Patients Dashboard can help. Tracking symptoms and triggers helps users to explain how they’re feeling and document their TBI. The Dashboard enables users to better manage their care and empowers TBI patients with their own data.
How To Print Your Report
We are working on a new print feature. Until that is ready there is a way to print your report and share this with your HCPs (Health Care Providers).
From your desktop
1. Open your report you wish to print, 5-day or 30-day view
2. In Windows: Hold the CTRL button & press the P key
3. Your print dialogue box will appear for your home printer
NOTE: for MACs, use the ⌘ button
You Asked – We Answered
Q: Why is there a slider scale on the Dashboard instead of categories?
The Dashboard is about personalization and with the slider we are able to gather more information that is specific to you. The slider scale enables more interactivity in response but it also enables you to indicate more precisely your symptom intensity changes over time.
For example, on Day 1 you record an intensity level of 50 and on Day 2 you record an intensity level of 40, that’s a change of 10. But let’s say on Day 3 you record an 80 intensity level, that’s a big change and tracking the change is what is so important with a brain injury, not categories- so keep sliding!
