Manage chronic pain with a digital service that connects patients to their care team remotely
We have partnered with PainSense, part of ADI health, to deliver a collaborative digital chronic pain service which helps patients to manage their chronic pain remotely using a cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approach.
Clinicians can make simple one click referrals to one of two easy to use pain management apps: The Pain Toolkit or The Pain Management Plan. In paper form, these resources already have an international reputation as highly effective tools for building self-management skills. The digital app uses these proven methods in e-learning form to help patients gain knowledge, guidance and skills to self-manage their chronic pain.
All data inputted into the app is fed directly into the patient record with clinical system integration, including EMIS Web and SystmOne. This is available to care teams to better inform interventions or changes in treatment and medication prior to consultations. The chronic pain app is already helping patients to live happier, healthier and more independent lives across the UK including in Leeds, commissioned by NHS Leeds West CCG.
