Boxes are available on the MDHAQ to record scores for physical function, pain, patient global estimate, and RADAI self-report joint count.
Scoring templates are available on the MDHAQ to convert physical function scores from 0-30 to a 0-10 scale, and RADAI self-report joint counts scores from 0-48 to a 0-10 scale.
RAPID 3 includes the three patient reported outcome (PRO) measures in the RA core data set (physical function, pain, and global estimate); RAPID 4 adds a RADAI self-report joint count and RAPID 5 adds a physician global estimate.
The RADAI self-report joint count is positioned between two 0 to 10 visual VAS for pain and global status in order to reduce the likelihood of patients giving the same answer on both VAS.
PTJT = RADAI, the Rheumatoid Arthritis Disease Activity Index self-report joint count includes eight joints or joint groups, scored 0, 1, 2, or 3.
RAPID 4: Total of 4 measures--adds a RADAI patient self-report joint count PTJT (0-10) to RAPID 3, for a total of 0-40, which can be adjusted to 0-10, using the scoring template at the bottom of Page 1.
