Preliminary results from an ongoing RWHAP clinic initiative to use text messaging as a re-engagement strategy to bring lost patients back to care, which may be a more manageable and possibly equally effective re-engagement strategy when compared to phone outreach.
Demonstration of how the development of a robust, HIV-specific retention module within a hospital’s the EHR (Epic) helped retention-in-care efforts and demonstrates how technology can be harnessed to retain patients in care, improve HIV care continuum outcomes, and help communities end the HIV epidemic.
