Green Shield Canada offers app-based service

To provide support to plan members living with chronic pain, Green Shield Canada (GSC) is offering access to an app that makes chronic pain management easier.

GSC has partnered with ManagingLife to offer plan members a full subscription to the “Manage My Pain” app. The app will be available to all plan members at no additional cost for the remainder of 2020.

Manage My Pain allows users to track, analyze, and share the details of their condition with their physician and other healthcare providers. It also gives users deeper insights into their condition, uncovering any hidden patterns and collecting important data for physicians and healthcare professionals to analyze.

“With the limitations on in-person treatment as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 situation, it has never been more important to ease the burden on those suffering with chronic pain,” said GSC EVP of digital innovation and brand experience David Willows. “The Manage My Pain app positions them to take control of their pain, and it serves as a daily reminder that they are not alone.”

“We are excited to be partnering with GSC on this important initiative,” added ManagingLife CEO Tahir Janmohamed. “In these challenging times, Manage My Pain has a key role to play in helping people manage pain and get back to doing the things they love.”
