Abstract

Mobile applications have the potential to improve health outcomes in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Whereas other chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart failure have a well-established presence in the mobile application realm, apps focused on RA are still in their infancy. This article presents an overview of the types of mobile apps that can be used for RA and discusses the opportunities and challenges associated with them.
