Within rheumatology, telehealth is essential to modern rehabilitation due to the demographic development with more and more elderly people. At present, telehealth solutions are used as part of the rehabilitation process in assessment, interventions and evaluation. Telehealth interventions are as effective as conventional follow-ups or self-management assessments, but the evidence on the effect is still sparse. Telehealth interventions seem to support a physically active lifestyle in the short term. In general, telehealth solutions are well received by patients, but the development must be based on user involvement, behaviour theory and the World Health Organisation principles of creating health literate organisations in order to ensure usability, effectiveness and further implementation.
