ePRAT: Virtual Management of Rheumatoid Arthritis
The purpose of this study is to optimize the care of patients with RA seen in virtual consultation.
|Condition or Disease
This study will be organized in two consecutive steps:
A first descriptive step that will consist of a retrospective analysis of virtual consultation records of patients with RA during the pandemic and lockdown period in order to analyze on which criteria the patients were assessed and followed during this period.
The second step will consist in evaluating the interest of the systematic use in virtual consultation of a patient reported outcome (PRO), the RAID (Rheumatoid Arthritis Impact of Disease) questionnaire; and analyze how its results influence the rheumatologist decision-making.
