Standardized Assessment Tools for Speech Language Pathologists

By Mannaqure on June 10, 2015

SLPs:

What Standardized Assessment Tool are YOU using? What Outcomes are you using to support your Clinical Judgment in the selection of Functional Limitation G-Codes for Swallowing /Oral Motor Speech Disorders and their respective Severity Modifiers?

Standardized Tests for Dysphagia and Dysarthria are limited; not only for our English-speaking adult patients, but until now, tools were non-existent for Spanish-speaking patients. Introducing MannaQure: The ONLY Comprehensive, Norm-Referenced English-to-Spanish Dysphagia and Dysarthria Assessment for the forward-thinking SLP in today's every changing Healthcare Market. Visit the MannaQure website at www.MannaQure.com for more information and to review MQ White Pages/Standardization Data.

Standardized Assessment for SLP

MannaQure is not only intended for use with your Spanish-speaking patients, but may be administered to your English-speaking patients as well, given all test items are in both languages. MannaQure's Assessment of Dysphagia and Dysarthria culminates into a Summary Report that translates into a Total Degree of Severity commensurate with Functional Limitation G-Code Modifier Severity Level of Impairment.

In addition to the Labial/Lingual/Laryngeal/Soft Palate/Respiratory Structure/Function Evaluation, along with Bedside Oral/Pharyngeal Exams, MannaQure Subtest items also provide the Clinician with Standardized Assessment data to aid in Functional Limitation G-Code reporting/Severity-Level Modifiers for the categorical measures of Receptive/Expressive Language Comprehension, Attention and Memory. MannaQure's Stimulability Probe is an added feature to guide SLPs in the development of a treatment plan that may include Oral-facial Stimulation/Pre-Feeding Techniques for patients with Profound Impairments.

All SLPs, whether they meet ASHA's definition of a Bilingual SLP requiring Native or Near-Native Proficiency in a Second Language, or if they are Monolingual, will benefit from the use of MannaQure as the tool provides Dysphagia and Dysarthria Terms accurately and appropriately translated for use in your Clinical Setting. MannaQure's Functional Pronunciation Guide aids any SLP, regardless of Spanish-Speaking Fluency in adequate articulation and presentation of test items with a Closed-Set of potential corresponding Patient Responses.

Allow MannaQure to be the Standardized Test that aids you in better preparation of your Clinical Documentation necessary to support Medical Necessity/Clinical Reasoning that aids in insulation of your Reimbursement, Paid Claims and Revenues. Protect your Clinical Documentation by referencing Standardized Test Outcomes as required by the Middle Class Tax Relief and Jobs Creation Act necessitating Claims-based Reporting through data collection for all Outpatient/Medicare Part B Therapy Services; Law Section 3005(g) implementation in 2013.
