Summary

Pain tracker that allows the user to record instances of experiencing pain. For people with arthritis/rheumatism, cancer, headaches/migraines, fibromyalgia, or other causes of chronic pain. Pain characteristics that can be entered include location, other symptoms, severity, etc. The screen for entering information is customisable. The pain experience can be analysed over time through calendars, charts, graphs, and other statistics. Records can be stored in the 'cloud' for safe-keeping. Reports can be generated for the purposes of insurance claims, diagnosis or treatment. A 'Pro' version that has to be purchased allows the user to view more than 10 records. The app is constantly evolving and we continue to add new features based on the feedback we receive from practitioners and our advisory team.  Details of these reports are here: http://www.managinglife.com/features?id=4 . In terms of institutional adoption, the app will be deployed as the only pain management app that will form part of the Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina's wellness platform for its 2.5M members.  We will be working closely with their clinical advisory team to tailor the reports and the app itself to positively impact patient outcomes.  The app developers are exploring a demonstration pilot at a set of private pain clinics in Toronto with similar objectives. Also available on Amazon.

Reviews

Reviewer: Rise Above Pain blog, UK
Review: “My number one, cream of the crop app for chronic pain sufferers is Manage My Pain. The app is basically a record-keeping tool for those in chronic pain, with free hosting of records on their servers to avoid losing data if your phone decides to throw a wobbler. I have used it for around 7 months now. At first, I had the free ‘Lite’ version, which became so handy that I needed up upgrade to the ‘Pro’ to allow myself the space for more records. Both levels of this app requires an account, but it is easily set up, and totally free to do. I found it very easy and uncomplicated to upgrade from Lite to Pro. The Pro version allows you to keep unlimited records of your pain, whereas the Lite version allows you ten at a time – which is do-able for the lighter user, or for someone who can really make the effort to blend reports a bit, to get the picture they need. I found it easier just to pay the extra to get the Pro version, and I’ve certainly got my money’s worth out of it. I would definitely recommend giving the free version a try, and seeing if it suits you. Sometimes, just being able to look at the timeline of results, and say “Well, x is obviously working”, helps you see the bigger picture of your pain when you’re struggling. Or if your pain is clearly increasing, it’s a visual record to show people who should be helping bring that level down – not just a tearful person turning up in A&E without ‘backup’ (as I have done). If I used this app to its full potential, and had a go with the reports section, I really think it could push my treatment forward, too.”

Review: “Here’s a great app for android users which has been made to help you ‘manage your pain’ … I downloaded this app the other day, and I really like it. It lets me document my pain quickly and easily, and I already noticed a cycle with my nerve pain that I never noticed before. It’s helpful for me.”
