Engagement and behaviour modification of patients with atrial fibrillation for improved health outcomes

Project Participants

Status: Ongoing


Implement and evaluate a multitouch digital support program for patients with atrial fibrillation involving the use of interactive voice response technology, text messages and web-based education portal.

Project objective

This project is a proof-of-concept study to investigate the feasibility and effectiveness of applying an automated, multi-touch digital outreach system to support the care of patients diagnosed with atrial fibrillation.

It is envisaged that the digital support program will ensure patient compliance with treatment plans, including medication adherence, attendance at regular office visits, timely completion of assessments and testing, and decreased ED utilisation.  Engagement will seek to gather patient reported information, including behaviours and health perceptions, barriers to care and social determinants of health.
