Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurological disease characterized by a wide range of symptoms, effects, and disease course. For any one patient, this can lead to many unknowns.
Dr. Hauser and his team at the UCSF MS Center of Excellence, had a vision of creating a tool that would allow patients to pull together their information, to see how they were doing, and to access a number of calculators and tools that would empower them to make decisions about their MS treatment.
Initially, the MS BioScreen was developed as an iPad-based tool for use in the clinic. Our team then made the tool even more Open and accessible to all people living with MS, their clinicians and their families.
Today, the Open MS BioScreen is a way to let you enter your information, track your MS, and chart your course. It gives you the benefit of seeing how hundreds of other people like you are doing so you have a better understanding of MS as it relates to you and people like you.
This new technology is free of charge to all users. It is meant to be scalable and adaptable as we understand more about MS, and we welcome your feedback.
