Commitment Preferences for Increasing Medication Adherence [ Time Frame: up to 4 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
We will measure whether participants prefer more commitment, in the form of a "Take-Medication-Get-Paid" plan; less commitment, in the form of an "Attend-Clinic-Get-Paid" plan; or if they would prefer to designate their own levels of commitment.

Understanding Medication Adherence Among HIV Patients
Understanding Medication Adherence Among HIV Patients

In anticipation of a pilot study incorporating behavioral economics into the treatment of infectious diseases, we will conduct a survey with HIV/AIDS patients at the Ponce Clinic (Infectious Disease Program of Grady Memorial Hospital, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA).

We are planning a study to improve health outcomes among patients with HIV/AIDS using insights from behavioral economics and financial incentives. We will conduct a survey with HIV/AIDS patients at Ponce Clinic (Infectious Disease Program of Grady Memorial Hospital, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA). The patients will be low-income persons living with HIV/AIDS and possessing varying degrees of medication adherence. We want to better understand how this particular population would react to commitment devices designed to increase medication adherence. We will survey participants to see if they would prefer more commitment, in the form of a "Take-Medication-Get-Paid" plan; less commitment, in the form of an "Attend-Clinic-Get-Paid" plan; or if they would prefer to designate their own levels of commitment.
