Behavioral intervention improved healthy behaviors, reduced flare frequency in RA


MedPage is writing about our RA program, and for good reason. Uma presented our poster at the American College of Rheumatology conference in San Diego last week.

A few highlights:

  • Participants gained a 16.1% increase in their mental health as reported by the PROMIS Global-10 questionnaire (average pre score = 41.4 vs average post score = 47.6, p < 0.001).
  • Participants reported a 50% reduction in the number of flares they experienced in the previous month (pre = 6.6 vs post = 3.3, p < 0.001).
  • Participants observed a 50% increase in medication adherence by missing fewer doses each week (pre = 0.4 vs post = 0.2, p = 0.01).
