2018 Winner Profile


Project Description:
Multiple Sclerosis Partners Advancing Technology and Health Solutions (MS PATHS) is the first example of "Evidence-Generating Healthcare" in the field of neurology. Launched in 2015, the project is a collaboration between Biogen and leading multiple sclerosis centers in the United States and Europe. Innovative technology solutions, integrated into the patient workflow generate standardized, quantitative data at every patient visit. The MS PATHS vision is to form a technology-enabled network of MS centers through which researchers have access to patient data generated from a broad MS population. Using the data, researchers hope to gain powerful insights and continuously learn more about MS and share those insights with the broader MS community. Ultimately, MS PATHS aims to better quantify the value of treatment and improve patient outcomes in MS. Over 10,000 MS patients have entered the program, which is already providing powerful insight about the impact of MS as well as its treatment.
