Study Population Description
Parkinson Disease;
The primary objective is to understand the utility of Personal KinetiGraph movement recording system data in the clinical management of Parkinson's disease (PD) in routine clinical care at a movement disorders clinic. Specifically: Measure medication use and clinical management plan changes in a large, multicenter cohort among participants undergoing a clinical assessment with an MDS in which the MDS reviews the participant's PKG during the clinical assessment in half of the enrolled participants (PKG + Group) and in half of the enrolled participants the MDS completes the clinical assessment without the PKG (PKG- Group); Determine the association between frequency of medication changes, the PKG information, and other clinical assessments among participants with and without a PKG report of their PD motor status available to the clinician at the time of evaluation;
Detailed Description
Evaluation of the Personal KinetiGraph™ (PKG™) to Improve Insight Into Parkinson's Disease Status (APPRISE). Evaluation of treatment changes with or without the use of PKG data, Time Frame: 90 day. The proportion of patients in which the clinical management plan was changed in patients followed in the PKG- Group (clinician standard of care) compared to the PKG+ Group (clinician standard of care with the use of PKG data.
