ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Integrated Pain Solutions, LLC (IPS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of PainCare Holdings, Inc. (Amex: PRZ), today announced that it has signed a national contract with FOCUS Healthcare Management, Inc. to deliver access to IPS' proprietary provider network of pain management specialists. Pursuant to the agreement, IPS' national call center will process patient appointments, originating from FOCUS' customer base, with pain management specialists affiliated with IPS' privileged provider networks initially established in New Jersey, Michigan, Tennessee, Florida and Colorado. Additional states will be added systematically as part of a planned national roll-out.
According to the American Pain Foundation, chronic pain takes a greater toll on the U.S. economy ($100 billion) in health insurance claims, lost wages and impaired productivity than any other chronic condition, including heart disease, hypertension and diabetes.
"We feel very proud and privileged to be partnering with FOCUS. This agreement represents a new revenue channel for our young company in the coming year," stated Maria R. McAfee, President of IPS. "Just as important, our relationship with FOCUS will provide IPS with an influx of patients that we have confidence will benefit from the specialized care and pain management expertise inherent in our network."
