Not sure about this
Looks good but there are some things need clarifying. You ask what drugs a person is on but do you want only ms modifying or all drugs? I am a diabetic. I have hypothyroidism. I am unable to enter the drugs. It asks if I’ve missed drugs but should I answer yes or no on drugs you don’t allow me to list?
Not as detailed as it needs to be in some areas. And really. The questions you ask, it would be nice if we knew if you had an idea when you wanted them. For instance. These are the tests for week dec 21-30. Then they reset for the next week or two weeks or month. I’m not sure how often you want them done or if they are so supposed to be completed by a certain date.
It’s still good to see you guys working at this.
As someone with MS, I am glad to see a new-tech way of gathering data about what an MS patient experiences.
However, this is just an early iteration that probably won’t reveal much information that I would find relevant to my experience.
For example, it asks what medications I am on and info like that. However, it is based on the assumption that I have access to health care or medication. I don’t. My chronic pain gets IBprofin (a drug they don’t even list) when I have the means of affording less than 10$ for medication. Treatment for the actual MS? Ha ha ha ha ha, dream on, I was diagnosed at 20 and under the American system I will never be able to afford treatment.
Experiences like mine will never be captured by this app. It really feels like they only want the experiences of people with money and access to health care, not the poor and suffering (and in case you’re wondering, having a three year old iPhone and a data plan is not what is keeping me from spending 10s of thousands of dollars a year on medications, some which top $120,00 for one year of one drug).
I really don’t think this tool will be useful in the long run. The creators left too many variables unresolved to make their data useful.
I encourage those affected by MS to use the app if you have access to health care, if you don’t it is pretty useless. I won’t be using it because it is a poor tool for capturing an inkling of what my life is like with MS.
Issues with emailing to set up
Went to sign up and it said you had to go to your email to verify. No email ever came. Tried having them resend and nothing. It logged me off where I was so went to sign in and did not take my password. Tried to reset password and it said I would get an email to do so and nothing again. Was interesting but know losing interest in helping
