    Pain Scale Improvement Field Descriptions 

    Remember: In order for patients to be included in this report, they must have a complete data set.

    Note: A complete data set is comprised of a completed outcomes survey on the Initial Evaluation and Discharge Summary. However, if the case has a Progress Note with a completed outcomes survey and the patient was Quick Discharged, the system will convert the Progress Note Survey to a Discharge survey. This ensures a complete data set for patients who self-discharge or are otherwise unable to complete their course of care.   
    • Average Initial Pain: This is the average score reported on Initial Evaluations.
    • Average Completion of Care Pain: This is the average score reported on Discharge Summaries
    • Average Difference: Average Completion of Care Pain - Average Initial Pain. Improvement: This is the percent improvement in pain reported by the patient.
