About CNS Response:
CNS Response provides reference data and analytic tools for clinicians and researchers in psychiatry. Treatment for mental disorders has doubled in the last 20 years and use of psychotropic medications has grown over 400% -- but treatments fail more often than they succeed and over 17 million Americans have failed two or more medication therapies for their mental disorder. The company's Psychiatric EEG Evaluation Registry, or PEER Online, is a registry and reporting platform that allows medical professionals to exchange treatment outcome data for patients referenced to objective neurophysiology data obtained through a standard electroencephalogram (EEG). Based on the company's original physician-developed database, there are now approximately 36,000 outcomes from 9,400 unique patients in the PEER registry. The objective of PEER Online is to reduce trial and error pharmacotherapy, the dominant approach for treatment resistant patients.
