AIDSinfo Mobile Guidelines Development: Reaching HIV Practitioners at the Point of Care
Exhibits on display at the recent 5th annual mHealth Summit included a poster tracing AIDSinfo’s ongoing efforts to develop mobile HIV/AIDS medical practice guidelines. The poster depicts how AIDSinfo is responding to rapid advances in technology to meet the increasing expectation for access to HIV-related information at the point of care (i.e., via tablets and smartphones). AIDSinfo mobile guidelines development is propelled by a 10-fold increase in mobile traffic to AIDSinfo over the past 3 years, as well as research that shows that 90% of health care providers surveyed on the AIDSinfo website have Internet access at the point of care.
