To Text or Not to Text: Electronic Message Intervention to Improve Treatment Adherence Versus Matched Historical Controls.

08:00 EDT 9th April 2019 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "To Text or Not to Text: Electronic Message Intervention to Improve Treatment Adherence Versus Matched Historical Controls."

Ensuring treatment adherence is important for the internal validity of clinical trials. In intervention studies where touch points decrease over time, there is even more of an adherence challenge. Trials with multiple cohorts offer an opportunity to innovate on ways to increase treatment adherence without compromising the integrity of the study design, and previous cohorts can serve as historical controls. Electronically delivered nudges offer low-cost opportunities to increase treatment adherence.
