Innovation balanced with clinical need will solve our health care system from failure. It will evolve from clinical practice.
As a leader in Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, as well as an advocate for patients and physicians, I saw the frontlines of the opioid crisis. Pain Scored is an easy daily log for patients to report and track symptoms, improvements, and problems. For physicians, its a HIPAA compatable documentation and compliance tool with time saving attributes. Future developments will help identify patients at risk for harm from therapy and suggest alternatives.
Patient Premier is a company focused on making health data useful to patients, physicians and other health companies. My partner Bryan Marascalchi and I started with an easy interface to understand publicly reported health quality data. We then turned to patient generated health data and created the Symptom Scored ™ platform of which PainScored is the first example. In the future, we will help democratize and monetize health data so that all patients can benefit from its use.
