Published on

Medication management system provider BESTMED has launched a new partnership with digital pain assessment tool PainChek.

BESTMED’s 40,000-plus aged care consumers will now have access to PainChek’s AI, facial recognition and smartphone technology to assess pain at point of care, with an integration pathway connecting the two systems; this will increase BESTMED’s application capabilities and enable it to support both medication and pain management in the aged care industry.

Nass Hijazi, Chief Executive Officer at BESTMED, says this integration will offer a seamless journey and lead to improved health outcomes for older Australians.

“It’s clear that all of our customers are looking for integration technology that makes connecting to other key business applications easy.

“With PainChek, we can help support aged care providers to seamlessly integrate systems and further improve the health outcome of older Australians.”

According to James Matthias, Global Product Manager, Integration Partnerships at PainChek, effective medication management is important at every stage of the aged care journey.

“Pain is inextricably linked to many of the medication prescribing and administration decisions along that journey. PainChek is excited to partner with BESTMED to provide seamless, integrated access to accurate and objective pain data directly via the BESTMED platform.

“This partnership supports our mutual mission, to ensure that clinicians are empowered by our technologies to provide best practice care in every scenario,” he said.

PainChek is used for more than 125,000 aged care residents in over 1,500 aged care facilities.
