AI-powered pain assessment company, PainChek®, is offering a one-off, up to £500 voucher to cover its product training costs.
The move by the provider of the world’s first AI-powered pain assessment tool follows the pledge by NHSX to give 11,000 iPads to UK care homes.
“NHSX is giving care homes iPads to help their residents keep in touch with family and friends at this difficult time and over the winter months,” said Pete Shergill, PainChek® UK&I Country Director.
“These devices also mean staff can access healthcare information quickly and easily, and give them the tools to manage residents’ healthcare information and requirements online. It also gives them the chance to access digital tech that supports and enhances resident’s care with the tools to take advantage of new technology like PainChek®.
“So we are offering all UK care homes subscribing to PainChek® before 31 October 2020, a one-off unique voucher of up to £500 to cover the cost of our product training for their staff so they can comprehensively and effectively use the PainChek® technology.
“PainChek® uses AI with smart automation to analyse micro-facial expressions indicative of the presence of the pain, giving a voice to those who struggle to self-report pain.
“Importantly, its technology also enables assessments and analysis from a safe three-metre distance, so care professionals can easily maintain safe social distancing measures and minimise the risk of infection.
“Our voucher is a chance for us to directly support and to help the healthcare professionals caring for people living with dementia to have the best pain assessment tool available, and can tackle and relieve the issue of pain detection and management for the people they are caring for.”
UK care homes can access the exclusive voucher code by emailing: email@example.com, with the reference ‘UK £500 voucher’ in the subject line. Each UK care home operator or care home can claim one voucher each until 31 October 2020. Each voucher has a value of up to £500 to be used for the PainChek® app training to staff only, and terms and conditions apply.
