MS Care seeks to improve the delivery of effective treatments for chronic pain and depression in patients with MS through the use of collaborative care, a specific type of integrated care.
When I think about Collaborative Care, it's a team of different providers with different strengths that can help patients.
I love that the Care Manager can check in with patients and provide them with tools and different sets of interventions.

Engage patients and providers in a collaborative model ensuring proactive care that best meets patients' needs and is grounded in the belief that patients are experts in their own lives.
MS Care improved participant's control of pain and/or depression as well as satisfaction with healthcare.
