Brighton hospitals recruit the 100th patient in the EmERGE Validation Study
Brighton has enrolled their 100th patient in the EmERGE validation study in the month of July 2017. Recruitment started in Zagreb and Brighton in April, and this rapid uptake of the new and innovative mHealth application developed byEmERGE shows that there is a clear demand for simplified and streamlined services for people living with HIV. Shorter clinic visits, easier tracking of clinical results, faster communication with the medical staff are key benefits of using the EmERGE health app on your smartphone. Another additional benefit is that the clinics participating in the project can consolidate, coordinate and compare their cohort data thanks to a standard back-end system that generates similar and comparable datasets. The purpose of the EmERGE validation study is to assess the impact of theEmERGE mHealth platform on patient self-management and empowerment in those living with stable HIV infection. This is being assessed at five clinical sites (Antwerp, Barcelona, Brighton, Lisbon and Zagreb).
