Session Type: Abstract Submissions (ACR)
Adult RA patients under current non-intravenous DMARD treatment were included in the prospective, single-arm, multicentre study. Patients were equipped with smartphones and educated to use a web application (WebApp) for self-assessment. Patients were assessed clinically by the treating physician at baseline. The assessment included joint counts, global assessment, laboratory values, along with simultaneous WebApp questionnaires (RAPID3/4) that were filled in by the patient. During the subsequent 3 months, patients were asked to fill in the WebApp questionnaires at least once a week. Descriptive statistics for RA disease activity according to the WebApp and rheumatologist evaluation at the baseline visit were analysed with the Pearson Correlation. Sensitivity analysis was performed. The correlation between RAPID3/4 scores and DAS44 as well as CDAI and SDAI was evaluated.
