What is QPD Panel?

QPD Panel is a mental health “lab test.” Patients self-administer the test in less than ten minutes using a smartphone, tablet, or browser. Health care providers immediately receive a test report with actionable information for treatment planning.

What does it assess?

QPD Panel assesses the following eleven mental health disorders based on diagnostic criteria specified by the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition (DSM-5). It also screens for suicidality, recent physical or sexual abuse, and (optionally) danger to others.

  • Major Depression
  • Persistent Depressive Disorder (Dysthymia)
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder
  • Panic Disorder
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
  • Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
  • Substance Use Disorder
  • Binge-Eating Disorder
  • Bulimia Nervosa
  • Somatic Symptom Disorder
  • Psychotic Disorder (optional module)

How can it do all this in just 10 minutes?

QPD Panel is intelligent. It uses advanced algorithms to select questions based on responses to previous probes. Patients are not asked irrelevant questions about disorders they do not have. They are examined in depth when a disorder may be present.

What information is in the test report?

The report has a look and feel familiar to medical providers, resembling a lab test. It communicates diagnostic information simply and clearly.

The report has three sections. The first section provides scores that measure symptom severity in eight domains. Out-of-range scores (warranting clinical attention) are indicated clearly. The next section lists applicable DSM-5 and ICD-10 diagnoses. The final section lists the specific symptoms the patient is experiencing. view sample report

What about outcome assessment?

QPD Panel can be re-administered for progress monitoring and outcome assessment. When a patient takes the test more than once, the report includes a trending graph showing changes in depression and anxiety over time. Providers can see at a glance whether symptoms are getting better or worse.

Is it valid?

QPD Panel has high sensitivity and specificity. It was validated against the SCID structured interview, considered the gold standard for psychiatric diagnosis. See our published, peer-reviewed validity research.

How does it work in telehealth?

Our telehealth solution is user-friendly as can be. Patients access the test by clicking a link on the provider website, or they can be sent a link by text or email. When they complete the test, they receive a personalized Patient Report highlighting problem areas to discuss with their provider. The provider receives the comprehensive QPD Panel assessment report.

How does it work in busy medical clinics?

QPD Panel integrates seamlessly into clinic workflow. Patients self-administer the test in the waiting area using a tablet device (iOS, Android, Windows, and Kindle devices are supported), or they can complete the test online before the appointment. Assessment results appear immediately in the patient’s electronic medical record. QPD Panel requires only a fifth-grade reading level and can be administered in English or Spanish.

Is it HIPAA compliant?

Of course.

Will it integrate with our EMR?

Yes. QPD Panel can integrate seamlessly with major EMR systems.

Is it reimbursable by third-party payers?

Yes. Physicians and psychologists can bill for QPD Panel administrations using CPT code 96146 for “automated psychological instrument administered via electronic platform with automated results.”

Does it really add value for providers?

Yes. In a physician satisfaction study, nearly 100% of primary care physicians agreed that QPD Panel is easy to use, integrates easily into primary care practice, can be used immediately by any provider, presents results in a clear and easy-to-understand format, and helps provide better patient care.

What about patient satisfaction?

In a patient satisfaction survey, over 95% of patients agreed QPD Panel is easy to use, is clear and easy to understand, and asks about things that are important for their provider to know.

Is QPD Panel really different?

Yes. QPD Panel is the only mental health test that achieves high provider satisfaction and high patient satisfaction in real-world clinical use. No other mental health assessment can make this claim.

Can I try it?

Yes. Visit the test drive page to try it for yourself.
