e-Health (or digital healthcare) is becoming increasingly relevant in multiple sclerosis (MS) clinical management. We aim to review and discuss current status and future perspective of e-health in people with multiple sclerosis (pwMS). The first part of this review describes how information on MS can be conveyed through the Web and digital media. The second part illustrates recent advances in digital technology that can improve clinical management and in motor and cognitive rehabilitation of pwMS. Finally, this review advocates future development of the “digital case manager” as a new figure to coordinate clinical management and care of pwMS. The digital revolution is changing the medical approach to MS in terms of information conveying and sharing, rehabilitation, and healthcare management.

Abstract

e-Health (or digital healthcare) is becoming increasingly relevant in multiple sclerosis (MS) clinical management. We aim to review and discuss current status and future perspective of e-health in people with multiple sclerosis (pwMS). The first part of this review describes how information on MS can be conveyed through the Web and digital media. The second part illustrates recent advances in digital technology that can improve clinical management and in motor and cognitive rehabilitation of pwMS. Finally, this review advocates future development of the “digital case manager” as a new figure to coordinate clinical management and care of pwMS. The digital revolution is changing the medical approach to MS in terms of information conveying and sharing, rehabilitation, and healthcare management.
