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 about 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).
- 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).
- Observed 50% increase in medication adherence (pre = 0.4 vs post = 0.2, p = 0.01)
In conclusion, results suggest that a patient-centered health coaching program is effective. Check out the poster here.
