Annapolis, MD - April 12, 2003: One in five Americans suffers from chronic pain, according to a survey by the National Center for Health Statistics.
But that’s about to change.
OutcomeMD, the nation's premier patient-reported outcome tracking and physician marketing platform, today announced a new partnership with Clearway Pain Solutions, one of the country’s leading and largest pain management medical practices that focuses on relieving pain, restoring function, and renewing quality of life for patients.
This partnership will:
“Healthcare professionals do not typically measure how their patient’s symptoms and quality of life improve or worsen over time in an objective way,” said Dr. Justin Saliman, OutcomeMD founder and CEO. “OutcomeMD solves this issue by making outcome tracking simple, engaging, and incredibly useful to patients and clinicians alike.”
How It Works
OutcomeMD helps Clearway score their patients' symptoms with objective questionnaires that have proven medical validity. The patient takes 3-4 minutes to complete the survey on their phone before their first appointment. Follow-up assessments are sent to patients remotely on a scheduled basis thereafter.
The OutcomeMD platform measures, tracks, and analyzes these patient-reported outcomes and notifies the provider immediately if the patient isn’t improving, which lets them adjust treatment in real-time.
The patient gets a fitness-like tracker experience so they can visually see where their symptoms were when they started treatment and by how much they have improved. For instance:
Providers can use this objective data to demonstrate how effective their treatment is. That can be used by prospective patients looking for capable providers rather than just ones with decent reviews.
"The team at OutcomeMD has been very responsive, professional and helpful. The product is robust and user-friendly. I highly recommend OutcomeMD." - Ira Kornbluth, MD, MA, FAAPMR
OutcomeMD is the first ever outcome management and marketing system that consistently generates high engagement from healthcare professionals and patients across all medical specialties. Patients are given a fitness-tracker-like experience and their providers measure and track how their symptoms improve over time due to their treatment. Aggregating each patient's scores and symptoms with confounding factors and EMR data, the OutcomeMD platform provides doctors with real-time data to improve patient care decisions. OutcomeMD also helps the clinician generate revenue for obtaining good outcomes, and in doing so shifts their treatment focus from patient catering to patient care.
