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.

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.
