The sensitivity and specificity of computerised or paper and pencil cognitive assessments

Improving timely dementia diagnosis is central to improving outcomes. In the UK, primary care is the gatekeeper to diagnostic services. Despite the importance of cognitive assessment in understanding the presentation of those with suspected dementia-related diseases, there is little standardisation of cognitive tests used across services and great variability in the sensitivity and specificity of these tests. Here, we present an economic model illustrating the effect of sensitivity and specificity of cognitive tests on the cost-effectiveness of the diagnostic pathway in the UK.
