Abstract EN

To describe and analyze the perception and attitudes of people living with HIV (PLWH) and HIV HCPs towards medication adherence with a focus on a digital medicine program (DMP) with ingestible sensors (ISs).

Methods.

This is a qualitative analysis pilot study of PLWH who were using DMP recruited by purposive sampling.

A convenience sample of HCPs was interviewed.

Semistructured interviews were conducted, and thematic analysis was performed.

Results.

Fifteen PLWH were interviewed, and thematic analysis resulted in three main themes: self-identified medication adherence patterns, experiences with the DMP, and recommending the DMP to others.

Six health care providers (HCPs) described barriers and facilitators to adherence, as well as advantages and disadvantages of using or recommending the DMP to PLWH.

Conclusion.

This study evaluated participant and provider responses to DMP, which is a novel technology for real-time measuring and monitoring adherence with the IS.

Participant and provider responses were mixed, highlighting both the advantages and limitations of the technology.

Practice Implications.

Taking PLWH experiences into consideration will enhance the development of this and other useful tools that clinicians and researchers can use for enhanced patient care.
