Integrating medication management and pain assessment to improve consumer outcomes.
PainChek and BESTMED Partner

Medication management and pain assessment go hand in hand, which is why we are proud of 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 50,000 aged care consumers relying on the BESTMED medication management ecosystem and more than 135,000 residents under the care of facilities using PainChek’s innovative AI technology, this integration will offer a seamless experience for carers and residents, and the potential to significantly improve health outcomes and quality of life.

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 offer PainChek customers an integration pathway that connects the two systems.

“We are excited to welcome PainChek to our growing list of partners,” said Phil Offer, CEO, BESTMED. “As our customers enter an era of unprecedented change, they are looking for new solutions to lift the quality of care. Integrating with a best-of-breed solution like PainChek is more efficient for our customers, it reduces setup time and delivers better health outcomes.”

Speaking of the integration, James Matthias, Global Product Manager, Integration Partnerships, PainChek, commented: “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. 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.”
