In collaboration with the Caribbean Training and Education Center for Health (C-TECH), Jamaica Ministry of Health and Wellness, JASL, and technical working group members, the Digital Initiatives Group at I-TECH (DIGI) is supporting the development and implementation of a mobile health client engagement tool in Jamaica.
The tool facilitates communication between clients living with HIV and their healthcare providers in between their care visits, through a digital case management system and two-way text messaging services. The tool gives clients anytime access to a text-message-based health library and the ability to ping their care team for telemedicine services. This digital health intervention seeks to strengthen the therapeutic alliance and enhance patient medication adherence.
This digital health intervention is made possible through funding and support from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) via a sub-award granted to the Caribbean Training and Education Center for Health (C-TECH) and DIGI through the International Training and Education Center for Health (I-TECH).
