Technical innovations and improvements benefiting both patients and medical specialists
The role of the rheumatologist is shifting towards that of the expert or the coach in the context of a personalized medicine where shared decisions are taken, in order to find the best treatment. The rheumatology section becomes more and more an outpatient clinic. In an integral network also the voice of the patient will be heard. Communicating in a broader field of work, the rheumatologist gets closer to primary care, aware of healthy food and lifestyle, giving general advice and guiding the patients.
