RA Healthline: A New App Designed for the RA Community

This post is sponsored by Healthline, a partner of mine. I am so excited to be working with them to help get the word out about their new app, RA Healthline. This will be a great resource offering unique ways to make connections with the RA community. Download your free RA Healthline app today!

For many people, smart phones are their lifeline to friends, business, information, entertainment, and support. Hundreds of health-related apps have been developed to help us keep track of physical activity, food/meals, symptoms, mood, appointments, and more.

I’m excited to tell you about a new app, simply called RA Healthline, that is developed by Healthline with whom I have partnered to help get the word out as the app officially launches on June 1, 2020. 

The RA Healthline app is unique in that it features a combination of some of the best elements of a Facebook group, support group, discussion forum, live chats, and curated articles in a moderated, safe community. 

I have already been working with Healthline for several months to co-host group chats within their well-established MS Healthline app. So I know what kind of coolness you will find when you explore the RA Healthline app and help shape this unique RA community from the beginning.

RA Healthline Features:

The Home tab looks a bit like your typical Facebook newsfeed. You get to see what new comments, posts, or questions have been posted within the community. 

The Groups section is where you’ll find a list of categories like Relationships, Diagnosis, Symptoms, Work, Complications, Lifestyle, Medication, and more. The Groups section reminds me of traditional forums where members can interact with and support each other. Tap on a group to view the conversation threads and add to the discussion. You can ask a question, respond to a conversation, or share a story. 

Live Chats:
Alternating within different groups will be a daily “live chat” with our Guide Ashley or co-hosted by one of our special guests, including ME!! Keep your eyes out for the alerts. Our first chat will take place on Tuesday, June 9, 2020, at 8 PM ET in the General Group.

I will be hosting a live chat on Thursday, June 11, 2020, at 8 PM ET in the Navigating Healthcare Group. We'll be talking about "How to Make the Most of Your Rheum Visit."

Within the Members section, you can be custom matched with other members who share characteristics with you based on age, interests, and more. You can also view all the members, see whose online, and strike up a conversation.

This section is where your one-on-one conversations will be stored. Think of this like your text message app within the RA Healthline app.

The Discover section is where you can find all the best articles and expert resources related to RA from It’s like having the website show up inside the app. How cool is that?

RA Healthline app offers different types of support all wrapped up in one location. In short, the app provides:
  • Connection with real people living with RA
  • Live chats covering all sorts of topics
  • Informative Healthline articles and resources
  • A place to give and receive advice and support
