Going Digital When You Have MS

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON MS SOCIETY| 07 SEPTEMBER 2018

Technology is so embedded in our everyday lives that I’d challenge anyone to go more than a couple of minutes without using something digital.

But what is the future for digital when it comes to helping people with MS? When I was diagnosed ten years ago, I ended up feeling very disengaged from the healthcare system. Now I wonder whether digital solutions could have helped me have a better experience.

How technology helps me with my MS

I use technology for many things relating to my MS and the biggest emphasis is on information and knowledge. When I was diagnosed with MS, I gathered enough literature to fill a bookshelf.

Now, the majority of my information needs are met digitally. I have access to a wider variety of digital information, via the internet, smart devices and patient portals. I’m more informed and can make shared decisions with my healthcare team. The next step is that I want to be able to more easily share my health records with all my doctors, because I’m not just my MS.
