To evaluate the feasibility of delivering mobile health (mHealth) self-management (SM) interventions to improve adherence to the prescribed treatment and to evaluate the impract in the multimorbid population returning home after hospital discharge.
Aim 1. To evaluate the feasibility of implementing comparative SM interventions (mHealth and mHealth plus virtual visits with a nurse practitioner and community health worker team) in multimorbid individuals by assessing:
- Acceptability of each intervention
- Enrollment (recruitment efficiency, attrition, problems and solutions);
- Intervention fidelity (delivery, receipt, enactment of the intervention[benefits and barriers]);
- Data collection (technological transfer of data, instrument reliability, time required, missing data).
Aim 2. To examine the impact of delivering the mHealth and mHealth plus interventions compared to standard care in multimorbid individuals on:
- Health related quality of life;
- Patient reported health status;
- Symptom status;
- Healthcare utilization.
Study Groups/mHealth Intervention
8-week intervention provides a mHealth platform to promote knowledge, skill and confidence to self-manage behaviors to promote adherence to treatment guidelines.
