Interviews with patients and caregivers recruited through a major advo...

A Partnership Approach to Enhance Health Care Literacy

With the help of local focus groups, the investigators are designing and testing a website to help urban people have better access to health care through understanding their insurance options better. They hypothesize that once individuals engage with the website and go through all of its modules, they will: 1) become more informed consumers of the ACA and its health insurance options; 2) enroll in an insurance plan; and 3) better leverage the benefits of their existing plans."

A Comparison of Two Anti-HIV Treatment Plans

The purpose of this study is to compare 2 treatment plans to try to increase the effects of anti-HIV drugs in patients who are resistant to the drug effects. Sometimes the increase in a patient's viral load (the level of HIV in the blood) can be slowed or stopped by taking anti-HIV drugs. This does not always happen. Sometimes anti-HIV drugs work at first but then stop working. When most of the usual anti-HIV drugs no longer seem to work, the virus is called multidrug-resista...

Impact of Telemedicine in the Rate of Readmission for COPD. Project CRONEX 3.0

The prevalence of COPD is high and suppose one of the first public health problem in the world. It has a high morbidity and mortality and healthcare costs. The economic aspect is directly related to hospitalization, accounting for 45-50% of total expenditure of COPD. Patients with frequent exacerbations generate most of the cost. In these patients, there are not standardized treatments or monitoring in a medium or long term, but it seems reasonable that the combination of vari...

Asthma in Families Facing Out-of-pocket Requirements With Deductibles

Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases in the U.S. Despite guidelines, adherence to recommended controller medications is low. Cost is an important barrier to adherence.
