To examine different methods of improving care quality at four Multiple Sclerosis Centers in the United States, with the goal of helping guide larger efforts to improve care at a larger scale in the future. We exist to improve MS care quality, value, and outcomes for people with MS.
Meet the Team
A lot of times we tend to forget that the people behind the research are actually humans too. We want to make sure you get to know us for who we are.
Our participating clinic sites are more than just a clinic; they are composed of people that care. Their staff strive, in and out of the office, to make patients’ lives better.
Every collaboration begins with an idea, yet it takes resources to make them happen. Our partners have generously provided the resources to create MS-CQI.
The Multiple Sclerosis Continuous Quality Improvement Collaborative (MS-CQI) was the first prospective multi-center randomized quality improvement research study for multiple sclerosis and was conducted from 2017-2020. MS-CQI was the first multi-center effort to study system-level variation in MS care outcomes and the effects of a coach-supported quality improvement intervention on system-level performance.
Four Multiple Sclerosis care centers participated in this in MS-CQI following approximately 5,000 people with MS. Thank you to everyone who participated in this important study!

Some of Our Findings
Being diagnosed with MS can be scary but it doesn’t mean you are alone. With over 700 people enrolled in our study, we’ve found out that many of them (78%*) feel confident in controlling and managing most of their health problems. Feeling good about yourself and your treatment options are one of many reasons we would like to share our findings.
