BBHI™ 2 Assessment Helps Increase the Science of Pain Management [cached]

In this article, three leading pain management physicians—Albert Ray, MD, Daniel Bennett, MD, and John Brendel, MD—discuss the evolution they have witnessed, the steps they have taken to address these changes, and how the BBHI 2 (Brief Battery for Health Improvement 2) test has helped them improve patient care.

Daniel Bennett, MD, an interventional spine/interventional pain physician and co-founder of the Integrative Treatment Center in Denver, says, "I've seen a significant evolution in pain management over the years. In the past, each practitioner operated within a specific discipline and the patient moved from one to another—the interventionist, the physiologist, the chiropractor, the psychiatrist—seeking a solution. In many cases, the patient never found resolution to the pain. Gradually, practitioners came to realize that they needed to look at the whole picture, not just one piece of it, to discern what makes a patient's pathology unique. Now, with an integrated approach, pain practitioners are experiencing a much better rate of success."
Bennett also points out that even after practitioners began to recognize the importance of understanding the patient's cognitive/behavioral environment, there wasn't an effective tool for measuring these factors for pain patients. "Pain is a very subjective experience. What we needed was a tool to compare data with the protocol, just as we do in medicine," he says. "The BBHI 2 test has given us that tool."
Bennett administers the BBHI 2 test to every patient as a screener at intake, and at every fifth visit thereafter. If the BBHI 2 test raises flags, the patient receives the more comprehensive BHI™ 2 test and then is referred for psychological therapy.
When Bennett was first introduced to the BBHI 2 instrument by test authors Mark Disorbio, EdD, and Daniel Bruns, PsyD, he was not an instant convert. "I thought the test was too short to provide any meaningful data," says Bennett. "Even though I knew that it was based on the same validation studies as the longer BHI 2 test, I was a skeptic. But when we started using the BBHI 2 test and I saw the detail it provided, I realized what a comprehensive tool it was."
Making The Right Call
To demonstrate how the BBHI 2 test has helped him avoid diagnostic errors, Bennett relates the story of a very high-functioning patient with reflex sympathetic dystrophy of the upper extremity. Bennett considered implanting a spinal cord stimulator and explained the procedure to the patient. However, because the patient's BBHI 2 results showed elevated anxiety, depression and somatization scores, he referred him to a consulting psychologist before proceeding further. In his sessions with the patient, the psychologist discovered that the man had an obsessive/compulsive disorder in regard to electricity and had spent four sleepless nights after hearing about the implant procedure. Because the patient was high-functioning, he had been able to effectively hide his concerns from Bennett and his team. The care team then determined that medication therapy combined with cognitive behavioral therapy would be the best course of treatment. "If we had installed the stimulator," says Bennett, "we probably would have made him much worse."
A Cost-Effective Option
Bennett finds that presenting the BBHI 2 test's normed results has made it easier to receive insurance payment authorization. He also notes that even in cases when HMOs have refused payment for the BBHI 2 instrument, the test is so modestly priced that it is still well worth using. And, he advises colleagues to consider the big picture economically.
Daniel S. Bennett, MD received his MD from the University of Miami and completed post-doctoral training in anesthesiology and interventional pain medicine. In 1996, he co-founded Integrative Treatment Center, a multidisciplinary spine/pain center in Denver, Colorado. Bennett also helped established The National Pain Foundation, dedicated to the education and betterment of people who live with pain
