Measurement Requirements

This trial is evaluating whether Luci Coach Assisted Intervention will improve 5 primary outcomes and 21 secondary outcomes in patients with Cognitive Decline. Measurement will happen over the course of At baseline post-randomization.

Recruitment Rate
Recruitment rate will be calculated as the number of participants randomized per month over the recruitment period
Enrollment Ratio
Screening-to-enrollment ratio will be calculated as the number of enrolled participants over the number of screened participants.
Platform Usage
Continuous measures of different parameters linked to platform usage during the study period will be recorded and analyzed, including pattern of use (e.g., time of day), frequency (e.g., number of platform access), duration of use (e.g., duration of the coach sessions) and the functionalities used (e.g., content viewed).
Change from baseline in Quality of Life
Quality of life will be measured with the SF-12. Scores range from 0 to 100, where a higher score represents higher levels of quality of life.
Action Taken
Action taken will be measured using a 3-item question (Yes, No, Don't know).
Change from baseline in Cognitive Performance
Cognitive performance will be assessed using the Cogstate Brief Battery. Scores range from 0 to 200, where a score ≤ 90 will indicates a cognitive impairment.
