Arthritis At Home Episode 9: Dr. Jonathan Hausmann on the COVID-19 Global Rheumatology Alliance and what they are doing to help patients

The ninth episode of Arthritis At Home features Dr. Jonathan S. Hausmann, Instructor in Medicine, @Harvard Medical School, on The Covid-19 Global Rheumatology Alliance (GRA) and what they are doing to help patients during #COVID19. The GRA’s mission is to create a secure, de-identified, international case reporting registry and curate and disseminate the outputs from that registry. The GRA hopes that the information collected will help guide rheumatology clinicians in assessing and treating patients with rheumatologic disease and in evaluating the risk of infection in patients on immunosuppression. #FactsFriday#RheumCovid

Dr. Hausmann is a pediatric and adult rheumatologist at Boston Children’s Hospital and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centerwith an interest in autoinflammatory diseases, health-related technology, and medical education. 

Dr. Hausmann has a keen interest in social media for medical education and personal development and is exploring how adolescent patients use social media to obtain or share health information, and how physicians have adopted social media for personal and professional use. Very importantly, at the outbreak of covid-19 outbreak he and his rheumatology colleagues around the world quickly formed the COVID-19 Global Rheumatology Alliance.
