Welcome to MDHAQ
The Multi-Dimensional Health Assessment Questionnaire (MDHAQ) is derived from the HAQ, to include physical function in 10 activities, pain, global status, fatigue, self report joint count, review of systems, recent medical events, morning stiffness, change in status, and demographic data on two sides of one page.
MDHAQ includes scoring templates for physical function, pain, global status, fatigue, and self report joint count, all scored 0-10, as well as templates for composite routine assessment of patient index data (RAPID), which can be scored in 10-20 seconds in a busy clinical setting.
MDHAQ is best administered by asking each patient to complete the questionnaire at each visit as part of the infrastructure of rheumatology care. Its value is considerably enhanced by maintaining a flow sheet to view patient status over time.
