Over 60% of users currently track multiple chronic conditions with MPD.
Columbus, Ohio (PRWEB) May 31, 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: migraines, fibromyalgia, back pain, depression, allergies and more.
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 latest update adds several new features.
The new 'Color Flags' feature acts as categories for the patient's entries. This allows users to easily track multiple conditions. Over 60% of users currently track multiple chronic conditions with MPD, so this is likely to be a popular addition.
The calendar, graph, and doctor’s report can be filtered by Color Flags, giving the patient and the doctor a more concise view of the data. No longer will the rheumatologist have to sort through headache entries.
MPD comes with a pretty good pain scale with descriptions. However, pain is personal and no matter how good a scale is, it can’t be suitable for everyone. Therefore, users can now edit the pain scale descriptions to suit their needs. Patients should consult with their doctors and set up the pain scale in a way that makes sense for them.
Another new feature is private entries. Private entries won’t appear on doctor’s reports.
As is typical, this update comes with performance and interface improvements as well.
