PainChek® is pleased to announce an international partnership program with leading New Zealand medication management system, Medi-map. 

The Medi-map platform is the leading medication management software for aged care providers in New Zealand. The platform manages all aspects of medication in a facility-based environment sharing the medication charts between prescriber, pharmacy and care organization staff allowing for a transparent, seamless cascade of care for each resident. 

Medi-map and PainChek will collaborate through Medi-map’s promotion of PainChek to their New Zealand Aged Care clients and the integration of PainChek results into the Medi-map platform to further enhance the seamless delivery of care. PainChek remains responsible for direct sales, implementation, training and technical support to the New Zealand client base. 

 CEO of Medi-map Greg Garratt said: 

“We are thrilled to Partner with PainChek in the New Zealand market. There are such great working synergies between both companies. Combining best in breed pain assessment with real time medication management is extremely exciting and powerful from a resident outcome’s perspective. Integrating PainChek results into Medi-map will lead to improved resident outcomes and better care. Something both companies are passionate about.” 

The New Zealand market presents another sizeable market opportunity for PainChek, where there are almost 40,000 residents in aged care and 70,000 people living with Dementia1. PainChek currently has Enliven as a customer in NZ with 300 beds under contract. 

 PainChek® CEO Philip Daffas said: 

“We have built a strong working relationship with Medi-map for some time and share the same goals in terms of delivering better care within aged care. Integrating PainChek pain assessments with the Medi-map medication system provides carers with the ability to diagnose and treat residents in pain in real time. This is a great step forward. The collaboration is another example of our digital capability, delivering PainChek to international clients in a cost-effective, integrated way and through a flexible business model built for modern day healthcare.”
