Why we developed this tool
There’s a long time between visits and MS is always changing. Many people already maintain their own tracking to identify trends in their symptoms, medications, and MS events. This tool simplifies this tracking from the time between visits.
Clinicians can use this data to better understand the way you experience MS. If you move, you can efficiently show your new MS doctor your chart. Clinicians can also input information on their own list of patients to better monitor them over time.
