Faculty research

Professor Archana Krishnan has published a study which finds mobile technology can help vulnerable populations with HIV. Known as mobile health interventions (mHealth), such tools include dosing reminders, data about medication intake and questions about care communicated electronically, all of which result in better feedback and improved communication between patients and their care providers.
