“I recently started tracking headaches and back pain in addition to RSD and added the Color Flags feature to handle that ... it was a nice surprise to learn that most users of MPD were tracking multiple conditions also." says Damon Lynn - creator of MPD
Columbus, OH (PRWEB) May 24, 2012
My Pain Diary: Chronic Pain Management (MPD) is used by thousands of patients and e-Patients around the world to track and manage a variety of chronic conditions such as: Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Menopause and Depression.
MPD takes the traditional practice of documenting the severity and frequency of one's pain and marries it with the iPhone, taking full advantage of the technology therein.
The next version of MPD is due to hit iTunes on May 31. This update has added features designed to make tracking multiple chronic conditions easier and more effective.
A recent survey showed a majority of users are tracking multiple chronic conditions using MPD.
Over 60% of users are tracking more than one condition.
Over 15% of users are tracking more than five conditions.
With a new feature called “Color Flags” (available May 31), users of the iPhone app can categorize their pain diary entries based on which chronic condition they are tracking. Using this feature, people who are tracking Fibromyalgia, migraines and back pain can easily distinguish between the respective entries.
Users can also filter the Calendar, Graphs, and Doctor’s Reports based on these Color Flags. Now patients can, for example, easily provide their Rheumatologist one report and their Neurologist a different report. This gives the users and their doctors a more concise view of the data, making it easier to find trends, triggers and correlations between different chronic conditions.
“I recently started tracking headaches and back pain in addition to RSD and added the Color Flags feature to handle that. This was prior to running the survey, so it was a nice surprise to learn that most users of MPD were tracking multiple conditions as well.” says Damon Lynn, creator of My Pain Diary.
Other features of this upcoming release are:
- Private Entries: Flag any entry as private and the entry will not show up in a Doctor’s Report.
- Editable Pain Scale Descriptions: Pain scale descriptions are now editable and can be set to suit the needs of the patient and the doctors.
