Denver, CO, May 02, 2017 –(– cliexa-RA, cliexa™’s rheumatoid arthritis app, has been scored among the 19 best RA apps selected from 700+ apps to NIH research:


The review highlights which apps weigh ACR/EULAR treatment guidelines and which include DAS28, among other important features. Researchers rank the apps using the Mobile Application Rating Scale (MARS). A scientific review of mobile apps for tracking rheumatoid arthritis disease activity finds that most apps are either simple calculators for physicians to measure disease activity or tools for patients to track symptoms, most of which do not uniformly collect data using validated instruments or composite disease activity measures.

cliexa’s Co-Founder and CEO Mehmet Kazgan says “cliexa™ changes doctor and patient behavior by connecting patients, clinicians and insurers to better care for and manage chronic conditions which translates into significant cost savings, a better doctor and patient experiences and better outcomes yielding higher customer defined value.” RA Medical Director of cliexa, Dr. Spencer stated that, “In today’s demanding medical environment physicians have limited time to gather relevant data, much less calculate an activity index. With an easily used technology application, patients can be instrumental in helping their doctors determine their disease activity, which, in turn, can lead to better informed treatment decisions. With cliexa-RA we are offering a free mobile application to achieve this goal.”
