Seamless Integration – PainChek and VCare

PainChek, the world’s first regulatory cleared medical device for the assessment of pain, now intelligently integrates with VCare, New Zealand’s top Retirement Village and Aged Care Facilities software solution provider. The first of its kind in New Zealand, this integration seamlessly synchronises pain assessment and resident data between the two systems, and leverages the power of VCare’s alerts system to drive your end-to-end pain management process.

PainChek’s integration with VCare serves one key purpose: ensuring that every stage of your pain management process is enabled and supported by your technology.

We achieve this by:

Sending all pain assessments created in the PainChek® app directly into the VCare system, populating them within the charting of the relevant resident.

Automatically reflecting all changes to resident information made in VCare, ensuring all residents in VCare are also present, with up-to-date details, in PainChek.

Linking into VCare’s powerful alerts system, allowing you to notify your team when assessment, re-assessment, or other actions are required. This function is customisable to reflect your organisation’s pain management procedures.

The integration between PainChek and VCare provides an up-to-date, comprehensive overview of resident data with no duplication or double-handling, which not only gives back critical time to clinical staff, but also enables best-practice care for all residents whose data is stored within the two systems.

Enabling Best-Practice Pain Management in Aged Care

David Allsopp (PainChek), James Mattias (PainChek) and Nazeef Khan (VCare) hosted this webinar to support staff in the aged care sector and provide a platform for learning and communication.

This webinar breaks down best practice strategies and provides valuable insight into how to enable Best-Practice Pain Management in Aged Care.

We discuss:

  • The role of technology/AI in aged care
  • The importance of accurate pain assessment and management
  • Overview and live demonstration of PainChek
  • Walkthrough of the PainChek/VCare integration
  • How to use PainChek in care plans

“PainChek really made us think about how important effective pain management is for older people and a key advantage is being able to rule out pain as a contributing factor for residents who are at times distressed. The connection with VCare reduces duplication for clinical staff and means the team can spend a little more time each day with residents.”
