More than 1.2 million Arizonans have arthritis (CDC, 2015). The term includes more than 100 rheumatologic musculoskeletal diseases and conditions, such as lupus, fibromyalgia, and rheumatoid arthritis. Left untreated, these disorders can lead to diminished quality of life and disability.

Rheumatology is a rapidly evolving medical specialty. The outlook for people with chronic rheumatologic disorders is improving with new forms of treatment and early diagnosis.

The ATP rheumatology ECHO clinic, which is designed to provide a consultative link between specialists and community clinicians throughout the state via videoconferencing technology. Its goal is to provide rheumatology consultations through case review of any rheumatologic disease condition and to train primary care clinicians to become experts in the care of these conditions so that patients can receive timely treatment in their own communities. This ECHO clinic is not currently in session.
