​​​​The ELECTOR project aims to develop a novel online and home-based treatment to patients with rheumatoid arthritis.

Patients will be allowed to conduct blood tests at home, perform online health questionnaires, forward the results to their personal health file at the hospital and consult the rheumatologist via a video chat. Benefits are that patients cut down on time spent in waiting rooms and doctors will be able to allocate more time to patients with extra needs.

The ELECTOR online treatment is designed as an optional treatment and is a tool to empower stable patients. The close contact with your rheumatologist will not diminish. Only the way that doctor and patient meet are made more flexible in the future.

To develop new health technology and medical routines require close involvement by health care professionals and patients. Therefore, the development of the ELECTOR system is designed as a participatory process. HCPs and patients take part in studies and workshops. Their feedback on software, medical device and clinical practices is directly implemented into ELECTOR.







This has resulted in valuable changes right down to the choice of a better lancet for the finger blood test, an improved design of the biomarker capsule used for the blood testing, enhanced user-friendliness of the software and a wide inclusion of stakeholder viewpoints prior to the coming clinical trials.


As a direct consequence of the” ELECTOR participatory model”, stakeholder evaluations performed by ELECTOR partners are now carried out in different projects outside ELECTOR. Moreover, the ELECTOR project has also played a vital part in the development of an international research and innovation project aiming to advance personalized medication in RA patients treated with biologic medicine.
