About BrainCheck

BrainCheck provides mobile neurocognitive testing and brain health solutions for patients and providers. Their solution is the result of 20 years’ research conducted at the Eagleman Laboratory for Perception and Action at the Baylor College of Medicine. BrainCheck’s mission is to help physicians deliver the highest quality, person-centered cognitive care, and to help people of all ages understand what’s happening in their brain.

Their solution is a computerized cognitive assessment aid, a prescription device that uses an individual’s scores on a battery of cognitive tasks to provide an interpretation of their current level of cognitive function. It leverages advances in brain science and portable computing to collect data relative to the brain’s performance, taking a snapshot of the brain’s function at that time.

BrainCheck’s solution is used by over 100 healthcare and athletic organizations around the US. And more than 40,000 individuals are using BrainCheck to assess and monitor their cognitive health and share changes with clinicians. To learn more, go to

The Challenge
BrainCheck’s infrastructure was underutilized and outmoded, impacting time to market for new features.
Featured Services

Improved security and HIPAA compliance

Optimized time to market

Improved scalability


BrainCheck’s infrastructure was underutilized and outmoded, impacting time to market for new features.

BrainCheck needed a modernized infrastructure with improved utilization and scalability in a secure, HIPAA-compliant environment. They wanted to optimize their time to market, which was adversely impacted by a broken continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline. Manual processes were slowing their delivery of new deployments, apps, and feature sets. They needed to automate build and test, and better manage deployments and notifications.

“Our partnership with nClouds allows us to focus more on our core value: our product. It’s really that simple.”


nClouds' Solution Architecture for BrainCheck

The AWS Well-Architected Review that nClouds performed with BrainCheck revealed architecture remediations that could be implemented to drive best practices in CI/CD. Following the Review, BrainCheck asked nClouds to perform the remediations.

A Well-Architected infrastructure enables faster updates and decreased time to market. Previously, BrainCheck had no CI/CD deployment pipeline — they used manual processes to do refreshes.
