Most practices use a paper-based method to administer standard questionnaires such as DASS, BPI, PSEQ etc. After the patient completes it, the results have to be manually calculated and then physically entered into whatever practice/patient management software is in use. ASIT Group decided that this whole process could be streamlined by digitising it and Analyze – Pain was born.
Patients are given a tablet and they can simply tap their way through the questionnaire(s) with results automatically calculated and sent to the server. After completion, the patient hands the tablet back and all of the results, along with graphs, spreadsheets and PDFs are immediately available on the practice’s computer. The results can then easily be integrated into the practice management software.
Analyze – Pain is extremely secure with individual passwords given to all practice users. All data is transmitted and stored securely with a ten week rotating backup automatically in place (HIPAA compliant cloud-based backups are available).
Analyze – Pain consists of three primary components.
A machine in your office is designated as ‘the server’. This does not have to be an actual server, a laptop will suffice, but it is necessary that this machine be on site whenever the data needs to be accessed. The server is the heart of the system and without it, nothing else will function. All of the data is stored here and is served up to the other two components.
These are the computers that are linked to the server by way of the Analyze – Pain client application. The clients give access to all of the results, reports and data. All of the main functionality for the practice is carried out by way of these machines.
The tablets are connected to the server and are used by the patients to fill out and complete the questionnaires. All of the data is transmitted securely over your local network. The tablets provide an easy-to-use, intuitive interface for the patients.
