Improving Medication Adherence and Outcomes among HIV Patients in the United States

Pilot-testing Wireless Devices and Financial Incentives to Improve Adherence

This study will assess the feasibility of using wireless devices and financial incentives to motivate adherence among adults receiving antiretroviral therapy, with a focus on those with suboptimal adherence and/or unsuppressed viral loads.  Participants will be provided with wireless devices that transmit real-time medication use information and then randomized to two different financial incentive strategies. Medication adherence and viral suppression will be assessed over a 3-month period. The results will inform development of an intervention that will be tested in a larger randomized controlled trial.
