AR-Power Patient Powered Research Network

Study Purpose

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.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.

An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.

Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Trial Details

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.


Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.
