"Manage My Pain" helps answer a question from doctors that are commonly heard by sufferers of chronic pain "how has your pain been since I've seen you last?" This is also a question that many find difficult to answer. The app uses patient engagement and analytics to help people track, analyze, and communicate their pain trends to their practitioners. It has been used by over 30,000 chronic pain sufferers and is currently deployed at a number of hospitals across Canada and the United States.
