Chronic Pain is one of the most pervasive and most costly diseases in the World. Millions of people suffer with chronic pain and its insidious symptoms. For sufferers, it is critical to their medical care that they can effectively communicate the nature of their pain to their doctors. This is a difficult challenge since pain is one of the most subjective and personal experiences humans face.
Chronic Pain Tracker has been designed to improve the Patient-to-Doctor exchange of pain information. Using Chronic Pain Tracker, the patient can monitor and communicate key pain metrics: pain intensity, location, and description. Sufferers of Chronic Pain know that each of these metrics can change day to day, or even hour to hour. This can make diagnosis and treatment of pain symptoms more challenging since patients most commonly describe their pain based on their most recent experience rather than using an evaluative process to statistically describe the typical pain symptoms being experienced.
Capturing Pain Data
With Pain Tracker, the user regularly makes a Pain Entry in the application. The entry process is designed to be intuitive and quick. The following data is captured for each entry:
Timestamp - this date/time marker is automatically generated by the application with no user interaction required.
Pain Level - using the familiar visual pain scale, the user selects their current pain level from 0 to 10
Pain Location - location is defined through a touch-based method where the user paints their areas of pain onto the screen
Pain Descriptions - the user can select one or more adjectives in the table that best define the pain they are feeling
General Comments - the user has the option to provide any other details/information desired for the entry
[NEW] Medication Taken - With our 2.3 version, users can now record medication taken with a pain entry.
Pain Analysis & Summary
With Pain Tracker, a user can automatically consolidate pain entries for a given time period and statistically analyze those entries. The application includes a series of pre-define reports such as \"Last 7 days\", \"Last 30 days\", etc. but also allows the user to define their own start and end dates for the analysis. The data is then aggregated, analyzed and presented in a summary and graphical format. Data presented includes:
Pain Level Analysis
a) average pain level for the report period.
b) distribution of pain levels over the course of the period.
c) graphical date vs. pain level view showing individual entries, daily averages, and moving average.
d) animation of individual entries to show each pain level against the average and distribution
Pain Location Summary
a) Using a unique compositing algorithm, each of your individual pain paintings are combined in order to display the range of your pain on the body image and highlighting those areas with the most severe pain.
b) Animation of the individual entries in the period to see how your pain changes over time.
Pain Description Analysis
a) Descriptions are aggregated so you can see the most commonly used descriptions of your pain during the period
b) report animation gives a view into how your descriptions vary from entry to entry
Reports can be viewed on screen OR converted into PDF format ready to email to your doctor or care giver. You can also export a CSV format for further analysis in Excel.
