EMOCHA MOBILE HEALTH
emocha uses mobile technology to facilitate Directly Observed Therapy. Patients use a mobile application on their smartphone or tablet to report symptoms or side effects and video record themselves taking their medication. Using a web portal, the patient’s care team or emocha adherence coach reviews the video, confirms medication ingestion, and engages with the patient throughout the emocha program. emocha is available in more than 20 languages, works offline, and is asynchronous. emocha provides customizable reports to the care team and provider that provide a summary of adherence and other unique insights gleaned from daily video submissions. An NIH-funded study conducted by Johns Hopkins found that emocha helped patients achieve an average of 94 percent medication adherence.
