The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation has awarded $8.7 million to VillageCare, a New York City community-based, not-for-profit organization serving people with post-acute and chronic care, as well as rehabilitation needs, to help HIV/AIDS patients by providing a multi-layered and tailored intervention aimed at improving their medication adherence via a mobile medication planner, text reminders, social networking, peer mentoring, virtual support groups, and virtual access to health coaches.     

Under the three-year project, called VillageCare Wellness Innovations, an integrated mobile web and app portal has been developed that includes a personal medication adherence plan, goals and mood tracking, an HIV/AIDS social support network, as well as video sessions and text messaging. The project, which “goes live” in April 2015, is part of a second round of CMMI Health Care Innovation Awards. The award is intended as a testing model of care delivery and payment that shows promise of improving medication adherence.
