PainChek, the world’s first smartphone pain monitoring and assessment technology, has partnered with Person Centred Software, its first international distributor.
Person Centred Software will distribute PainChek to its UK client base and has integrated with PainChek to provide a joined-up solution for care providers to monitor pain in people who are non-verbal, such as people living with dementia. As 70% of people living in care homes have dementia in the UK, PainChek is a valuable tool for care providers to monitor residents’ pain.
Philip Daffas, CEO of PainChek said: “We are delighted to be working with Person Centred Software. The team and product offering are highly complementary to PainChek.”
Using AI and facial recognition technology, PainChek provides carers with the ability to identify the presence and quantify the severity of pain when pain isn’t obvious. Already completed integration will feed the information captured in PainChek into Person Centred Software’s Mobile Care Monitoring system, an intelligent mobile solution for evidencing care interactions, electronic care planning, reporting and analysis. Integration to care plans and assessments help carers to personalise resident care plans and monitor pain.
Jonathan Papworth, co-founder and director of Person Centred Software said: “Person Centred Software is the most widely used electronic care planning system in the UK and we see PainChek as a significant addition to improving the quality of care management. Up to 80% of people in care homes experience chronic pain that often is undisclosed and unidentified. PainChek aligns with Person Centred Software’s values, especially to improve quality of life for everyone involved in social care, and we are therefore delighted to distribute PainChek to our UK client base.”
