“AR-Power Patient Powered Research Network”
ArthritisPower is a patient research network and database (registry) to collect prospective information about demographics, self-reported diagnoses and medications, and willingness to participate in research from participants with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), spondyloarthritis (SpA), and other musculoskeletal conditions. Participants will provide information from their smartphones or personal computers. The information will be used by researchers to help patients and their providers make better, more informed decisions about treatment of RA/SpA and other musculoskeletal conditions. ArthritisPower is part of a larger national research network called PCORnet whose 33 network members have mapped their data to a common data model. Network members will be able to submit queries through PCORnet in order to answer a range of comparative effectiveness research questions. Data sharing across PCORnet will be accomplished using secure methods to prevent patient identification. There is no cost to participants for participating and no compensation is provided. Objectives: 1. To establish a research registry to enable comparative effectiveness research in rheumatic diseases and other musculoskeletal conditions. All data collected using the ArthritisPower mobile app as part of a subject's use is stored with the ArthritisPower registry. This data will be used in conjunction with existing and future research studies. 2. To use the data from this study to improve treatment and to further advance finding a cure for rheumatic diseases.
