The future of remote monitoring and rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Watch a recording of a panel discussion and Q&A held with the NRAS on 28 June 2023. The traditional appointments system, with face-to-face appointments at fixed intervals, can mean that patients struggle to access care when they need it most. We hear from the teams at King's Improvement Science and the Health Innovation Network, and their continued work on an experimental remote monitoring system, that prevents unnecessary patient follow-ups. Expect to learn how the system is being evaluated, feedback direct from RA patients, why you should get involved in research.
