27 May PainChek® achieves International Markets Milestone
PainChek® Signs UK Market Distribution Agreement with
Person Centred Software
PainChek® has reached a key milestone in the international expansion of its PainChek® tool – the signing of binding distribution agreement with Person Centred Software.
Person Centred Software provides Mobile Care Monitoring (MCM) which is an intelligent mobile solution for evidencing care interactions, electronic care planning, reporting and analysis. MCM is currently used by over 1,200 care homes across the UK, 94% of which are rated as good or outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). MCM enables care providers to reduce the time spent on paperwork, exceed compliance measures and improve the quality of care.
Under the agreement Person Centred Software will distribute the PainChek App to their UK client base through their sales, marketing and service capabilities. PainChek® integration into Person Centred Software’s Mobile Care Monitoring system will provide carers with seamless pain assessment and monitoring of their residents living within Aged Care.

“We are delighted to be working with Person Centred Software. Their team and product offering is highly complementary to PainChek® and together we can leverage the positive learnings and market acceptance from Australia into an even larger market. The agreement will provide us with rapid access to their large UK client base.” commented Philip Daffas, CEO of PainChek Ltd.
PainChek® market pricing in the UK market is in line with the Australian model and the revenue generated will also be based on take up of the service.
“Person Centred Software is the most widely used electronic care planning system in the UK and we see PainChek® as a significant addition to improving the quality of care management. We have already completed the PainChek® integration into these products, so we are ready to go to market” said Person Centred Software’s Co-Founder and Director, Jonathan Papworth.
“We had extremely positive feedback from our joint visits to UK clients earlier in the year, with it widely recognised that as an evidence based technology PainChek® can help carers personalise their resident care plans” he added.
To manage this agreement, and others the Company is expecting to sign in the near future, the board of PainChek Ltd has committed to setting up a PainChek operation in the UK in near future.
Commenting on the distribution agreement and establishment of UK operations, PainChek CEO, Philip Daffas, said, “We are establishing a core PainChek UK team who can take advantage of the large European market opportunity and work with strategic partners, like Person Centred Software, on a country by country basis”.
