Automate your chronic pain patients' education and data collection while monitoring care progress remotely
Chronic pain is an individualized experience that has many different root causes. A short-term, acute injury may turn into a systemic and complex disease state, requiring different diagnostic approaches and management strategies.
Traditionally, pain management patients receive primary care or ambulatory clinic treatment and then return to their homes and lives, attempting to manage their condition largely independently.
Without adequate support, however, they can struggle to maintain the pain management strategies which they have acquired and often may feel frustrated and even abandoned, potentially leading to a return or even worsening of their condition.
Monitor, guide and support chronic pain patients after they have left the clinic
With the BuddyCare remote care Platform, care teams now have the ability to monitor, guide and support chronic pain patients after they have left the clinic for weeks and even months to come. Through automated, digitized care plans, instructions and reminders, patients are following the necessary steps at the right time to maximize the benefits of their clinical treatments.
Automate your patients’ instructions delivery and pain measurement
Patients can access training materials, instructional videos about exercises and pain management strategies 24/7. They can stay connected and communicate securely with their therapists and providers and upload photos, forms and questions whenever necessary.
Chronic pain can be a very isolating experience for the patient, as they are met with many unique difficulties throughout their everyday life. The BuddyCare App provides the patient with a constant care companion to guide and motivate him or her for tasks, to monitor progress and minimize challenges that may otherwise arise. Patients will feel less alone, be more involved and committed to their own care and healing through this interactive approach. Patients may also experience less anxiety about the journey after the clinical stay.
Furthermore, the use of opioids may be better monitored for example with the help of a pain scale and even reduced as patients are more consistently guided and presented with alternative methods of pain management, such as breathing techniques, mindfulness exercises and journaling.
