2) Favor Study (in collaboration with eMocha Mobile Health Inc.)

Overview: Poor adherence to heart failure drugs has been shown to be associated with an increased number of cardiovascular-elated emergency department visits and patient admissions. Advances in general technology and other fields of medicine have provided opportunities to improve adherence and to reduce heart failure related admissions through the use of video-based Directly Observed Therapy (vDOT).

Design: This study is single-center, prospective cohort study for the remote monitoring of heart failure outpatients using emocha mobile technology for 90 days.

Objective: To evaluate the feasibility of video-based directly observed therapy (vDOT) in promoting medication adherence and identifying medications errors.
