My Health Story is now live and has totally replaced PainTrain My Health Summary.

My Health Story goes beyond helping people communicate their stories of living with chronic pain. It now presents a way for more individuals enduring chronic and complex health issues to communicate their health stories and manage their healthcare better.

For healthcare practitioners, it presents an opportunity to diversify your care offering and influence positive behaviour in the overall patient journey.

My Health Story takes a holistic view of each unique lived experience and understands that patients are more than their disease.

Here’s a glimpse of the user menu. Visit the website to view Sam’s health story and also view how Dr Oz manages his patients, Dorothy, Scarecrow and Tinman!
