  Purpose

We hypothesized that providing physicians treating with HIV disease, at the time of a routine outpatient visit, with a detailed report describing patients' adherence with HIV antiretroviral medications, would improve the quality of the physician-patient interaction, and also patients' subsequent adherence.

Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Received report Behavioral: Adherence report
During the intervention phase, the data collected at the study visit were summarized in a 3-page report that was given to the provider before each intervention visit. The report included data on self-reported adherence, MEMS adherence, reminder use, beliefs about ART, reasons for missed doses, alcohol and drug use, and depression.
Placebo Comparator: Routine care
Patients receive usual, routine, care.
Behavioral: Adherence report
During the intervention phase, the data collected at the study visit were summarized in a 3-page report that was given to the provider before each intervention visit. The report included data on self-reported adherence, MEMS adherence, reminder use, beliefs about ART, reasons for missed doses, alcohol and drug use, and depression.
