Abstract

The management of multiple sclerosis (MS) has progressed significantly with the emergence of mHealth technologies. Uptake of mHealth apps amongst people with MS, and clinical and demographic characteristics of mHealth adopters is unknown outside North America. Participants of the HOLISM study were queried about their mHealth apps use. We summarize mHealth app usage, and clinical and demographic characteristics of mHealth app adopters using descriptive statistics. Overall, 3.1% of respondents reported using an mHealth app, most of whom were located in Australasia and North America. This study provides insight regarding mHealth app usage within a large international cohort of people with MS.
