Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:2nd Jun 2014

The study aims to investigate the effect a systematic telemedicine intervention, based on the teigth control principals, as a platform for disease monitoring among patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

It is hypothesized that:

- A systematic telemedicine intervention targeted to tight control of disease activity among patients with RA will be equally effective as usual care (outpatient consultation by a rheumatologist).
- There will be no difference in the effect whether this telemedicine consultation is carried out by a rheumatologist or a rheumatology nurse.
- Patient satisfaction and the patient's general perception of involvement in their treatment will be increased for patients who receive the telemedicine intervention.
- All the effects will apply both in the short term (< 6 months) and in the long term (> 1 year).
