This is a prehistoric method staggering innovation
If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it. Our technology allows medical professionals to treat each patient encounter like a study visit.
Through our Multichannel High-Resolution Data Capture, we collect patient-reported outcomes and translate them into a common measurement language. We are marrying the subjective (PROs) with the objective (HRV, EEG, and urine biomarkers) to make pain a data-driven disease.
Come talk to us about the billion dollar opportunity to make pain a data driven disease.
Ethos Labs Foundation Pain Index (FPI) has developed a composite score comprised of a panel of eleven functional pain biomarkers, which is based on the abnormal biochemistry described in a population study of over 17,000 patients on opioids for chronic pain. The Celeri Health Real World Outcomes platform was used to cross-validate these results with PROs to better understand the daily lives of individuals with chronic pain in the context of their biomarker profiles. The result of the analysis detailing the corroboration between the FPI and PROMIS-29 in real-world patients noted significant associations with multiple domains, including physical function, pain impact score, fatigue, pain interference, and depression. This validates the utility of the FPI for identifying the composite chronic pain state. Continued research is underway to calibrate this approach so as to define next step in clinical decision making.
Celéri Health is being used to study objective measures for changes in pain sensitivity. Due to limited tools to objectively quantify pain clinically, clinicians rely on patient reported scales to determine pain treatment options (e.g.,opioid dosage is typically to the patient’s estimate of pain). Without an objective test of pain sensitivity, a kind of “blood pressure” equivalent to pain, treatment decisions rely on patient’s claims of pain, which may be based on the patient’s desire for treatments due to addiction or anxiety about pain that they experience as intolerable. Patient’s know that if they report more pain, it is likely that their physician will prescribe more pain medication. For this reason, objective tests for pain sensitivity are needed to assess patient’s complaints with precision.
The Celéri Health platform is being used in conjunction with the Muse S (choosemuse.com) biofeedback training device to assess impact on quality of life using PROs, bio-signals (EEG, HRV, Cerebral SpO2), and pain tolerance and sensitivity using a cold pressor test. This multichannel data capture study will allow us to objectively correlate bio-signals of pain with the patient’s mood, sleep, and function is currently underway. Further information can be found here at Clinicaltrials.gov.
As a patient living with chronic pain, it was frustratingly inadequate to communicate the challenges we face in everyday life on a 0-10 scale. As a Celéri Health patient, my clinician starts each visit by measuring what matters in pain care. Each chronic pain experience is multidimensionally assessed with the PROMIS-29 profile to quantify individualized impacts on mood, sleep, function, social participation, and pain interference with daily activities. Reviewing these longitudinal assessments at the beginning of each visit serves as a compass for care, and helps my medical team focus on meaningful goals for care.
At Celéri Health we understand that not all patients are the same. Our co-founders Dr. Michael Fishman was recently interviewed alongside one of his patients. Listening to the chronic pain journey and impact of treatment on quality of life is a driving force behind what we do at Celéri Health.
