Beyond Pain Scores – Digital Tools Insights From Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligences

Published on June 10, 2022

Jeff Rogers, PhD   Ajay Antony, MD

Dr. Jeff Rogers and Dr. Ajay Antony discuss the use of digital tools, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to improve pain management. The doctors describe data collected by IMMPACT, which encompasses subjective pain scores, physical function, emotional function, symptoms, adverse events, treatment adherence, and patient ratings (e.g., improvement, satisfaction). They also explain that digital tools help expand services into patients’ homes where real-time data can be collected in a continuous manner and used to establish, modify, and enhance treatment. The use of digital and micro-electronics demonstrate that patients’ needs involve more than addressing their subjective pain as it affects various aspects of their lives.
