Pearson and Coviu Webinar on Remote Cognitive Assessments

Coviu has partnered with Pearson Clinical to deliver a free, live webinar on the 'Benefits and Challenges of Remote Cognitive Assessments'.

Coviu and Pearson Free Webinar



Remote administration of cognitive assessments has rapidly increased over the last few years, with health professionals recreating their in-person processes online.

In early 2022, Coviu conducted a number of customer interviews to understand the key benefits and challenges for providers and clients administering Pearson assessments via Coviu's telehealth platform. As we battle shortages of health professionals, telehealth assessments like Pearson, offer a solution to a strained healthcare system in Australia and abroad.

Join our free, live webinar, 'Benefit and Challenges of Remote Cognitive Assessments', where the presenters will discuss:

  • Benefits of remote cognitive assessments

  • Key challenges of remote cognitive assessments

  • The future of remote cognitive assessments

  • Cognitive Pearson assessments available via Coviu and how to use them

This webinar will also include a live Q&A.

About Coviu and Pearson Clinical

Pearson Clinical is a multinational publishing and education company and the global leader in clinical assessments. Coviu, Australia’s leading telehealth platform partnered with Pearson Clinical in 2015, to create a seamless integration of the two products, to enable allied health professionals to administer Pearson assessments remotely via Coviu.

Coviu’s platform was created specifically for healthcare needs with security and privacy features built into the platform, making it a platform of choice for healthcare professionals in Australia and abroad. Currently, there are 14 Pearson assessments available on Coviu with new assessments being added regularly, including WISC-V, WAIS-IV, CELF-5 A&NZ, CELF P-3 A&NZ, KBIT-2, RBANS® Update, and others. Between 2015 and 2020, a rigorous process was implemented to conduct research into the remote delivery of Pearson assessments over telehealth, followed by extensive usability testing. The process ensured that the remote administration of the assessments closely mimics that of the in-person experience, without compromising the validity and reliability of the results.
