Medication management and managing pain go hand in hand, which is why we are very proud and excited to announce our integration with PainChek®, the world’s first clinically proven digital pain assessment tool. Using AI, facial recognition and smartphone technology, PainChek® intelligently automates the pain assessment process at the point of care.
With over 40,000 aged care consumers relying on the BESTMED Medication Management ecosystem and more than 125,000 aged care residents having their pain assessed by PainChek’s innovative AI technology, this integration will offer a seamless journey and lead to improved health outcomes for older Australians. Through this partnership, BESTMED has increased its application capability and will now be able to support the aged care industry in transforming both medication management and pain management. As well as expanding our offering to existing BESTMED users, we will also be able to offer PainChek customers an integration pathway that connects the two systems.
“We are excited to partner with PainChek,” said Nass Hijazi – Chief Executive Officer, BESTMED. “It’s clear that all of our customers are looking for integration technology that makes connecting to other key business applications easy. With PainChek, we can help support aged care providers to seamlessly integrate systems and further improve the health outcome of older Australians.”
“Effective medication management is key at every stage of a person’s care journey, and pain is inextricably linked to many of the medication prescribing and administration decisions along that journey.” said James Matthias – Global Product Manager, Integration Partnerships – PainChek. “PainChek is excited to partner with BESTMED to provide seamless, integrated access to accurate and objective pain data directly via the BESTMED platform. This partnership supports our mutual mission, to ensure that clinicians are empowered by our technologies to provide best practice care in every scenario.”
PainChek® is the world’s first regulatory cleared medical device for the assessment of pain, enabling best-practice pain management for people living with pain in any environment, including those who cannot reliably self-report their pain, those who can, and those who fluctuate between the two.
