  • Research Site Introduction:

    This research registry aims to evaluate the effectiveness of a root-cause medical approach (“AndHealth program”) for autoimmune disorders in clinical practice. The clinical approach under study involves a combination of pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies offered under the care of a licensed physician, with the support of a clinical pharmacist, health coaches, and other providers. While guidance is provided, the therapeutic approach is personalized to the individual needs of patients, and this research registry aims to evaluate practice-based outcomes. The autoimmune disorders of focus in this registry include rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, psoriasis, and ankylosing spondylitis. A variety of validated laboratory and questionnaire outcomes will be assessed among participating patients over a period of up to five years to evaluate the long-term effectiveness of this approach. Of particular note, participants in the research registry may opt out of the study at any time and continue with the clinical care being provided, for which consent is obtained separately from the consent obtained to track outcomes in the research registry. This is solely a research registry and not a repository, as no biological samples (laboratory samples, tissues, etc.) of any sort will be stored.
