Mobile Health Technology and Pain Management
5:26PM - Sep 1, 2022
AbstractThe modernization of healthcare is critical to all clinicians, especially those who treat patients with chronic pain. Preliminary data suggests that mHealth technology can improve treatment plan adherence, medication protocol compliance and lead to improved patient outcomes. The mHealth platform described bridges a treatment gap that occurs between visits and has been demonstrated to improve clinically important outcomes. Improving physician-patient communication in conjunction with increased patient compliance and monitoring may reduce the risk of opioid misuse and addiction. Importantly, mHealth provides clinicians with information that can help differentiate addiction from tolerance and physical dependence. It may also provide the practice a means to be compensated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and many other payors for the time and expertise of providing daily contact with patients. Lastly, this mHealth platform is designed with attributes that serve as a safeguard against legal liability due to enhanced communication and affirmative clinical documentation.

Introduction to TheResearchPost: A New Approach to Peer-reviewed Medical Publishing
3:39PM - Jan 4, 2022
AbstractTheResearchPost is a start-up, open-access, peer-reviewed, medical journal built on a data visualization platform. The journal is designed for medical research, including clinical and preclinical research, real-world evidence, health economics and outcomes research, observational studies, and clinical case studies. The journal's format features slides instead of manuscripts, which streamlines the writing and review process, and better matches how people read and share information. The journal's open-access format makes high-quality, medical research freely available to all.
