Pain Management Diary Provides Easy Way to Record, Track and Share Health
ALBANY, N.Y., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- ReliefInsite (http://www.reliefinsite.com) today unveiled a new release of the ReliefInsite pain management diary built on Facebook Platform, a new way for companies and developers to integrate with the Facebook website. With more than 47 million active users, Facebook is the sixth-most trafficked website in the United States. ReliefInsite, which launched its web-based pain management system in August, has implemented a new release that makes both free and premium diaries available to users of Facebook.
ReliefInsite helps patients communicate better with their doctors by collecting essential medical details -- such as pain location, intensity, and medications (premium diary only) -- and automatically organizing these details into medical reports that patients can print and give their doctor or share on Facebook. Because pain is subjective, patient self-reporting plays a critical role in treating it. In this era of consumer-driven healthcare, Facebook provides a new and effective resource for people to take a more active role in their health, and for physicians and caregivers to receive timely, detailed and structured information that can help them to better diagnose and treat patients with pain.
"We are extremely excited to be the first company to deliver a personal health record built on Facebook Platform," said Fred Eberlein, CEO and founder of ReliefInsite. "Millions of individuals suffer from pain, so it's wonderful to have this opportunity to offer our pain management tool to the millions of people who use Facebook every day."
Facebook is a social utility that helps people communicate and share information efficiently through the social graph, the network of connections and relationships between people. More than 50 percent of Facebook users return to the site each day, providing unparalleled distribution potential for ReliefInsite and the opportunity to create a health information sharing resource that is highly relevant to people's lives.
