WALTHAM, MA (September 20, 2017) – Inflexxion, Inc. announced today that Allscripts has certified PainCAS™ as part of the Allscripts Developer Program. PainCAS enables Allscripts ambulatory EHR users to assess pain, functioning, and risk of problematic opioid-related behaviors in patients with chronic pain.

Developed in part with support from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), grants (Grant No. R44DA026359, PI S.F. Butler and Grant No. R44DA015617, PI S.F. Butler), PainCAS is a scientifically validated web-based, patient self-report clinical tool for assessing pain and opioid misuse risk in patients with chronic pain.

PainCAS Features:

Standardized assessment of pain, functioning, and risk offering evidenced-based problematic opioid-related behavior risk assessments that are quick for patients to complete, and are scored and interpreted automatically

  • Improves workflow by eliminating the need for paper assessments, reducing staff burden related to hand scoring and interpretation of risk assessment, encouraging patients to complete intake/follow up assessments prior to their appointments
  • Advances clinical outcomes by identifying changes in patient risk status over time, tracking patients’ pain profile in the context of ongoing treatment, and monitoring changes in patient functioning over time

“Participating in the Allscripts Developer Program allows us to help Allscripts clients by providing a scientifically validated tool to assess for pain and opioid risk for patients suffering from chronic pain and assist in determining treatment planning,” said Bruno Lempernesse, CEO, Inflexxion.  “Our mission is to provide clinically relevant tools and data to improve patient outcomes and assist in combatting the opioid epidemic.”
