Journal features abstracts, research from mHealth Summit

To coincide with last week's mHealth Summit 2013, the Journal of Mobile Technology in Medicine put together a special supplement edition featuring the latest abstracts and research from the 5th annual conference in Washington, D.C. Text-based interventions seem to dominate the issue.

The journal edition includes a feasibility study of text messaging to improve oral anti-cancer adherence in older cancer patients, and a randomized controlled trial protocol of a text messaging intervention to improve patient adherence to treatment for latent tuberculosis infection.

In addition, the JMTM issue provides a qualitative investigation adapting text messaging to improve HIV care, and a randomized controlled trial of personalized text messaging to improve physical activity in a diverse patient population with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Article
