In any given population, approximately one in three people experience chronic pain. Currently, there are no methods to objectively verify or means to identify or quantify the presence or severity of chronic pain. The current standard of care relies on a patient self-report, such as the Numeric Rating Scale (NRS), which leads to the inaccurate assessment of a patient’s chronic pain state at baseline and at follow-up, creating uncertainty regarding the appropriate selection of treatment options including prescription of opioids. As a result, patients are often either over-treated, leading to addiction as manifested by the opioid epidemic, or under-treated, leading to readmissions, lost productivity, unnecessary pain and suffering, and significant costs to the health care system. PainQx’s mission is to provide tools for the objective assessment of chronic pain so that clinicians can more effectively manage their chronic pain patients.
