This comprehensive digital health intervention that empowers clients, enabling them to take an active role in their own care journey. By utilising the intervention, clients gain remote access to support for medication adherence and long-term care, leading to enhanced overall health outcomes and improved quality of life.
Key to the intervention is a new Digital Case Management Tool, which facilitates seamless communication between case managers, social workers, and clients.

This streamlined communication enables timely interventions, immediate support, and personalised care planning.

The app provides anytime access to a health library containing key information about general health conditions and HIV. By empowering clients with information and access to their Case Management team, this digital health intervention aims to reduce risk of missed appointments and medication non-adherence.
