Mobile Health Tools to Promote Effective Patient Provider Communication to Underserved Populations

by:

The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), under the US National Institutes of Health, is an agency that supports clinical and basic research with the objective of establishing a scientific basis for the care of individuals across the life span.

The NINR makes it their mission to promote and improve the health of individuals, families, communities, and populations. In line with this, the agency also supports research studies that are greatly focused on health promotion and disease prevention, quality of life, health disparities, and end-of-life care.

The NINR, in cooperation with the Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) has constituted the funding opportunity for Mobile Health (mHealth) tools aimed at the improvement of effective patient-provider communication, adherence to treatment and self-management of chronic diseases in underserved program.

The aforementioned grant is basically geared to promote real-time communication between members of the health care team, both from rural and urban areas, by taking advantage of today's substantial advancements in Smartphone technologies.

The mHealth program hopes to make the process of real-time transmission of data from digitally remote areas directly to specialists in urban areas not only a possibility but an anticipated working reality.

In line with that, this funding opportunity ultimately encourages eligible applicants to develop, test and compare effective analysis of interventions utilizing mHealth technologies in underserved populations.   (continued...)
