Pain Scored is another option – a better tool for compliance. Traditional practice, consisting of pain contracts, inconsistent patient pain diaries, and documentation of each patient encounter, are not enough anymore. They have not proven to decrease morbidity or prevent harm. They are inadequate for documentation. Although frequently cited as part of a standard approach in the treatment of chronic pain patients on opioid therapy, there is little evidence that the use of UDM reduces diversion, abuse, misuse, or overdose deaths.
Pain Scored is an easy daily log for patients to report and track symptoms, improvements, and problems. Using a simple interface, this dynamic tool uses a variety of inputs to measure pain, symptoms and side effects. Most important, reports are simple and easy to understand. Behind them, however, is a powerful analytical tool which puts the data together. The goal is not zero pain- its improved quality of life. Together with pain scored, your story is documented for your caregivers in a better way than before.
Keep a diary of pain symptoms and side effects as well as pain medications.
Information is logged frequently using unique methods intended to create a simple user experience.
The data is aggregated using powerful back end analytics into innovative reports.
These reports are used by clinicians to make better treatment decisions and to monitor compliance.
“Pain Scored is incredible. It allows me to document with ease what is happening, so that the doctor can see the pattern of pain. It has helped my physician to see the whole picture”
