Abstract

The EmERGE platform is a novel mHealth solution that supports a new paradigm for HIV care. Following a rigorous co-design approach, it provides users with a system that can link securely into the health records of an individual, select the data required, and once reviewed by a clinician send the data and clin-ical opinion confidentially to the individual’s smart device. The proposed clinical pathway aims to facilitate patient empowerment and self-management of HIV while reducing face-to-face consultations for people living with stable HIV. The EmERGE platform has been deployed at 5 European clinical sites and it is being successfully used by more than 2000 individuals. A formal evaluation is currently underway using a tailored Health Technology Assessment process specifically developed for the assessment of mHealth solutions. The evaluation will assess the impact of the EmERGE pathway on patient empowerment, quality of life, patient related outcomes and experience measures, usability, quality of care and cost in diverse health systems.
