ProCare Research LLC (Grand Rapids, Mich.), a physician-led medical research organization focused on value-based approaches to healthcare with an emphasis on the relationship between quality and cost, unveiled its PRISM Patient Management System at the American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM) 2011 Annual Meeting held March 24-27 in National Harbor, Md. The PRISM System is a clinical outcomes tool for capturing patient data and helping physicians to better understand, evaluate and clinically manage individuals and populations of patients suffering from chronic pain.

The PRISM System offers a number of clinical and business benefits for physicians and their practices with the overarching goal of providing high value to chronic pain patients, with value defined as the health outcomes achieved per dollar spent. For patients, the system gives physicians the tools to support data-informed decision making for more efficient and effective care. For physicians’ practices, it makes available patient report cards that can enhance the physician-patient relationship, aid in referral development, and differentiate practices from the competition with benchmark results.
