SummarySIMmed is a mobile phone technology that allows patients to record medication intake on their mobile phone.
Computainer provide HIV and TB treatment compliance systems and services to ensure that medicines are taken as prescribed, and ensure HIV treatment programmes are as successful as possible.
Key program components
The patient takes their medication and presses a speed dial on the mobile phone. If the compliance database has not been received that message within the prescribed period it generates an SMS to remind the patient. If the patient still does not take their medication and presses speed dial, the database will generate a SMS to a local care giver who will visit the patient and get them to take their medication. After a pilot study the programme is now being expanded in South Africa.
