Brief Summary:

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most common inflammatory rheumatism in adults, affecting nearly 0.4% of the general population. It is a real public health issue. International guidelines recommend strict control (remission or low disease activity) of the disease, to avoid joint destruction in order to reduce the functional impact of the disease in the long term and to improve the quality of life of the patients.

This care is based on a close follow-up requiring regular visits with the specialist which represents an additional cost (transport, visits). In this context, tele-medicine is often proposed as a complementary approach in the management of these chronic patients.

Thus, the investigators propose to study the interest of a connected device by comparing a group of patients using this Smartphone application, coupled with a hand dynamometer during the 6 months following initiation of a new DMARD.

remote monitoring by smartphone in the care management of patients with rheumatoid arthritis
Device: Smartphone
Smartphone application coupled with a hand dynamometer
Other Name: tele medicine follow up

Active Comparator: control group
standard outpatient follow-up by physical consultation
Other: physical follow up
regular visits with the specialist

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Consultation [ Time Frame: follow up of patients over 6 months ]
    To evaluate whether the use of a computerized monitoring interface on Smartphone ( "SATIE-PR" application) reduces the number of consultations during follow-up of patients with RA over 6 months

  2. Number of consultations [ Time Frame: follow up of patients over 6 months ]
    % of patients who benefit from at least 4 consultations over a 6-month period.
