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.
