SAGE-SR / SAGE-CI
ASSESS PATIENT SYMPTOMS QUANTITATIVELY, COMPREHENSIVELY, QUICKLY, AND AT LOW COST.
GENERATE IMMEDIATE DIAGNOSES ACCORDING TO INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS IN BEHAVIORAL HEALTH.
The world’s first completely self-report behavioral health comprehensive diagnostic assessment, the SAGE-SR can be taken in waiting rooms, or from home using a PC, Tablet, or smartphone.
Compatible with both the ICD-10 and the DSM-5, the SAGE enables clinicians to screen for a current episode of any of 30 diagnoses.
Instant reports provide a differential diagnosis (SR) or specific diagnosis (CI) with ICD-10 codes for the clinician. Clinicians send interpretive reports immediately to the patient’s EHR in a user-friendly format.
SAGE reports enable clinicians to delve deeper in face-to-face appointments, researchers to make important decisions, and pharmaceutical companies to recruit more precisely for trials.
The SAGE-SR is the world’s first completely self-report comprehensive diagnostic assessment compatible with both the ICD-10 and the DSM-5. Written at a 5th-grade reading level, consisting of 70 short screening questions, and containing no open-ended questions, the SAGE-SR is user-friendly both for the client taking the assessment and the clinician. Individual assessments take 10 to 20 minutes for your client, depending upon the number of screening questions endorsed, and little to no clinician time. No clinician training is required for administration.
If a client meets the screening threshold in any category, that group of screening questions branches to a more comprehensive set of self-report questions. The total item bank consists of over 500 items, yet no patient receives more than 100 of these follow-up items.
Clinicians can administer the SAGE in waiting rooms, or send secure links for clients to take the assessment from home using a PC, Tablet, or smartphone. To protect your client and your practice, the SAGE-SR runs via a secure, cloud-based server, and it does not include any items relating to suicide or homicide.
The SAGE-SR covers all diagnostic symptoms of 30 behavioral health diagnoses. Intuitive reports provide feedback on pertinent positive endorsements and a list of ICD-10 diagnoses that should be considered, which are compatible with DSM. It is up to the clinician to evaluate pertinent positives and to draw her own conclusion about diagnoses. Clinicians can, as an option, drill down using the report to view the patient’s responses to all items. Reports are available immediately on-line and in many instances can be sent directly to the client’s EHR.
SAGE-CI (CLINICIAN DIAGNOSTIC INTERVIEW)
For those interested in a deeper evaluation of the patient’s diagnoses, we offer the SAGE-CI, a highly structured interview that can be administered by any primary care clinician. The SAGE-CI can stand on its own, prompting clinicians to ask questions in a structured interview, or it can build upon the SAGE-SR and pre-populate with the patient’s self-report responses, saving the clinician time and allowing the clinician more control over follow-up questions and interpretation.
Either way, the SAGE-CI is online and intuitive to use. Administration can usually be mastered in about 15 minutes and requires no in-person training. Individual assessments take 10 to 20 minutes depending upon the number of screening questions endorsed.
The resulting SAGE-CI report provides the clinician a specific diagnosis with relevant ICD-10 codes. These interpretive clinical reports can be sent immediately to the patient’s EHR in a user-friendly format. If you prefer, you can read the reports online or print them out before a clinician visit.

How can SAGE advance pharma / clinical / research work?
> Explore a wide range of symptoms quantitatively and at minimal cost: The SAGE promotes accurate diagnosis and ensures that co-occurring disorders are properly identified, generating appropriate ICD-10 codes.
> Quickly identify patients who might be eligible to participate in specific clinical trials: Since a detailed analysis of symptoms will be included in a searchable database, the SAGE will enable researchers quickly to identify patients who might be eligible to participate in specific clinical trials.
> Identify symptoms that are most likely to improve with a specific intervention: The SAGE may make it possible to identify the symptom clusters that are associated with a good response to specific interventions. It may also help identify the symptoms that are most likely to improve with a specific intervention.
> Identify symptom clusters most commonly associated with specific biomarkers: Once a very large database exists, the SAGE will also make it possible to search the symptom database to identify the symptom clusters most commonly associated with specific biomarkers.
