DENVER, Jan. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Lin Health, a digital behavioral health platform catering to patients with chronic pain, today announced that it will be working with SteadyMD, a B2B telehealth technology platform, and clinician workforce provider, to offer accurate diagnoses for patients with chronic pain and provide behavioral-health-based treatment options. The care plans are tailored to address patient-specific triggers for pain to reduce pain and significantly improve the patient's quality of life.
Lin Health members now have access to SteadyMD's best-in-class medical staff via telemedicine. SteadyMD providers are specially trained to utilize the ICD-11 pain diagnosis protocol, which represents a change in how pain is medically understood and diagnosed, to include a new top-level diagnostic category, Primary Pain. Members will receive a personalized pain relief care plan based on SteadyMD's pain assessment. This represents a massive stride forward by bringing science-informed, evidence-based, accessible, affordable, and effective treatment for chronic pain.
"This new offering is a game-changer," said Abigail Hirsch, PhD, clinical psychologist and Lin Health co-founder. "While the scientific research is clear that most long-term pain can be reversed with a proper diagnosis and care plan, this represents the first nationally available option for the diagnosis and treatment of primary pain."
While chronic pain has been misdiagnosed and mistreated for decades, Lin Health recognizes the importance of a correct diagnosis for patients and will reference the new classification in ICD-11 for primary chronic pain. SteadyMD will give patients the attention they deserve and strive to understand their entire medical history to provide an accurate diagnosis. Once diagnosed, each user's pain management program is specifically tailored to their condition and addresses the following: anxiety, depression, stress, movement, pain education, sleep, diet, and other aspects of people's lives that are affected by pain.
"Together, Lin Health and SteadyMD have developed an accessible and highly effective care model to help millions of Americans treat their symptoms without the use of potentially dangerous prescription medications," said Dr. Josh Emdur, chief medical officer at SteadyMD. "Chronic pain patients no longer have to suffer and can be empowered with tools and treatments that are now at their fingertips. This is a huge step in the right direction and as more research becomes available, Lin Health and SteadyMD will update their care plans accordingly."
Lin Health currently serves people with chronic pain in all 50 states and coordinates telehealth visits via partnerships with multiple telemedicine networks. To learn more about Lin Health, visit lin.health.
