Quality Care Metrics is a medical enterprise SaaS helping doctors evaluate their patients’ pain more accurately and objectively.

QCM devices survey patients in the doctor’s office, capture their responses via video camera, and analyze their facial expressions. The software helps determine the intensity of a patient’s pain and whether or not their pain could be caused by underlying factors such as depression or anxiety.

If you go to the doctor with a sour stomach or a pounding head, you might be asked to rate your pain on the Wong-Baker scale.

Essentially, looking at a lineup of cartoon faces and picking the one which best matches your level of misery. In other words -- it’s not an exact science.

But the way we rate our pain can greatly affect the treatment we receive.

Downplaying, exaggerating, or misinterpreting pain can lead to dangerous misdiagnoses and time and money wasted seeking the wrong treatments.

Quality Care Metrics is here to help.

Quality Care Metrics is on a mission to make pain measurement more precise.

Our devices survey patients and analyze their responses. No more guesswork – our software evaluates facial expressions and patient medical history, pinpointing the source and intensity of a patient’s pain.

Who benefits from objective pain measurement?

Our software implements item response theory, computer adaptive testing, affective computing, and machine learning algorithms. But despite the advanced tech involved, our system will be surprisingly easy for doctors and patients to use:

Our software also integrates data from the patient’s EMR (electronic medical record) giving physicians a comprehensive evaluation of their patient’s health.

Sometimes pain can be triggered by psychological conditions rather than physical issues.

Our analysis can determine if pain is caused by underlying factors such as:

Opioid Crisis

It’s currently easy for patients to fabricate or exaggerate symptoms in order to obtain an opioid prescription.

Our system alerts doctors to high-risk patients who may be drug-seeking, helping prevent unnecessary and potentially dangerous prescriptions.

Until now, we’ve focused on product development to ensure that our technology is fast, accurate, and thorough. We’re ready to further test and develop our tech and begin to gather data.

Several pain management clinics want to use our systems; we plan to implement QCM at these clinics and gather customer feedback.

Our team includes medical professionals and software experts joining forces to create an exceptional product.
