“Bring your own device”: use of patients’ mobile devices for PROs shows promise

In a presentation at ECTRIMS 2018, Professor Tjalf Ziemssen of the Center of Clinical Neuroscience at the Carl Gustav Carus University Clinic (Dresden, Germany) discussed the ongoing shift from paper-based to electronic PRO (ePRO) data collection.
