New computerized memory screening methods are beginning to move standardized memory health tests into the home and physician’s office. Two important themes are driving the growth in computerized memory assessments:
A $2.1+ Trillion Global Economic Cost of Dementia by 2050. In 2010 the worldwide cost of dementia was estimated at US$604 Billion, and this cost is expected to balloon to US$1.1 Trillion by 2030 and US $2.1 Trillion by 2050. The number of seniors (age 65+) is projected to be over 1.5 billion people by 2050 – dementia rates begin to rise sharply in this population group after age 75. Having reliable, easy to use tools to screen for memory and cognitive impairment will become increasingly important.
