Telemedicine based on self-measurement of disease activity may be one of the key components to create the health care system of the future. If patients use an app to self-monitor their disease and self-initiate care at the right moment, this could lead to a reduction in outpatient clinic visits, with benefits to healthcare burden and costs. For this purpose, we developed a mobile phone app for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). In this talk I discuss the development and evaluation of our app.
