South Carolina Alzheimer’s Network (SCAN)

The South Carolina Alzheimer's Network (SCAN) is a collaborative program that aims to bring together medical professionals and their supporting institutions caring for patients with Alzheimer's disease and other related disorders. It is designed and committed to ensure that patients have access to:

  • Early and accurate diagnosis.
  • Coordinated lifelong care plans reflecting co-management by primary care and cognitive specialists.
  • New anti-amyloid medications as they are approved.
  • Clinical trials and research protocols through the proposed South Carolina Alzheimer's Disease Research Center (ADRC).

SCAN will utilize a system of advance care coordination and telemedicine to reach patients throughout the state, implement an educational component for primary care providers, and support the clinical core of the ADRC.
