Change is all around us and those living with chronic pain have an additional burden during these times of uncertainty that is often overlooked. We are intensely working on our services to make them easier to use and more relevant for patients, clinicians, and researchers, but to get there we need to make some changes.
On June 27th, 2020, we closed new registrations to our community and took the public (free) release of GeoPain offline while we move into a new era of virtual pain care. While the free app is temporarily unavailable, we'll continue to support providers, researchers, and our existing users with the same quality of service we are known for.
The GeoPain application has been used to help thousands of patients, in 6 countries, across 40+ conditions track their chronic pain over the past five years. We have no intention to lessen the services that we provide through the app. In fact, many improvements will appear in the app after the transition is completed...
Robust HIPAA Servers that will bring greater security and speed, but also give you greater control over your data.
Quicker Pain Entry reducing your time in the app so you can get back to feeling better.
Telemedicine and Monitoring for providers looking for greater engagement with their patients.
Lower Data Usage for storing and syncing pain entries. Each new pain entry is now less than a small image. (~20kb)
Dark Mode for those with light sensitivities or those who just prefer the style.
New 3D Body Types allowing you to choose the form you best identify with.
Weather Tracking that automatically gets added to reports providing greater context to your pain.
Tailored Reminders so you can set multiple reminders throughout the day/week/month with your own messages.
New Sharing Options to make communication with others much easier.
A lot needs to be done, but all of it has you, our users, in mind.
On July 4th, 2020 the GeoPain app will be removed from the App Store and will no longer be available to be downloaded. The existing server will also be decommissioned as we move over to a new solution.
These changes will prevent new signups through the app so those who want to continue using the free app are encouraged to create their accounts before June 27th. Services to clinics and research teams will still be available provided they have an active license of GeoPain. (Contact Us)
We don't expect things to be down for long and we deeply care about the health and necessities of our users. This why that when we open registrations again it will be well tested, medically relevant, and fetaure rich. If you want to participate through our early-access program as a patient, clinician, or researcher let us know. (Contact Us)
We're excited by the benefits this will bring to all of our users, individuals, research teams and clinics. However, just like the world around us, we will need time to reassess, adapt, and ultimately return better than we have ever been.
