In this interview, Frédéric Markus highlights the concrete benefits of the Electronic Health Record (DSP) for Parkinson's patients. "By enabling patients' medical information to be shared securely, the DSP facilitates continuous, personalised monitoring throughout the patient's care pathway," he says. This continuity of care is essential in the management of Parkinson's disease, which often requires a multidisciplinary and progressive approach.

He also emphasises the collaborative aspect of the DSP, which actively involves patients in managing their own health. "Because patients have access to the medical information stored in their DSP, this allows them to become full partners in their care team and to be actively involved in decisions concerning their treatment," he says. This active involvement of patients promotes autonomy and increases their sense of control over their illness.
