Our goal is the safe and effective use of opioids for the treatment of pain.
We support patients and providers with 24/7 monitoring to
enhance prescriber compliance and patient safety.
We help put a check on the opioid epidemic.
Quality of Life is functional: determined by what you can do.
Maximizing function is the most important health outcome.
Monitoring function is the best way to improve care and safety.
PCP’s and specialists can only assess patients ~3 to 4 hrs per year.
We are extending this assessment into patients' homes and lives.
How we are different
“What is the least amount of medication that provides the highest level of function?”
While others are focusing solely on abuse and addiction, our approach is to focus on the legitimate use of opioids for nearly 100 million patients to optimize patient function. By monitoring their safety and ensuring prescribers compliance with care guidelines, we work in partnership with patients and their physicians to answer this critical question.
60% of US adults have one or more chronic conditions and over 100 million adults suffer from chronic pain. 30% of patients with the most prevalent chronic diseases are also receiving long term opioid therapy to help manage their conditions. This provides a natural bridge to the monitoring of all chronic conditions day and night in the lives of patients. Health and safety can be managed across the continuum from acute to chronic care, post-op recovery and spanning both allopathic and palliative care. This approach will improve patient safety, health outcomes, and reduce costs, transforming the healthcare model in ways that have never been possible.
