CMSC 2023 | Outcomes of two MS clinics: in-person and virtual

Alexander Burnham, MS, CCC-SLP, MSCS, The Boston Home, Dorchester, MA, discusses the outcomes of two specialty clinics – the Spasticity Management Clinic and the Virtual MS Clinic. Patients in the Spasticity Management Clinic have advanced multiple sclerosis (MS), so specialists come to the clinic to perform evaluations and provide interventions, which have high satisfaction rates with patients. The Virtual MS Clinic has a team of neurologists, nurses, physicians associates, and other specialists. Currently, 4-5 patients from the Spasticity Management Clinic meet with these specialists bi-monthly on a rotating basis. This has improved follow-up-care compliance and reduced the burden for severe MS patients as the visits can be in a comfortable location using a tablet. There is also a direct communication line, which increases the ease of following recommendations, especially for symptomatic management. This interview took place at the Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) Congress 2023 in Aurora, CO.
