|Issue Date:||29-Sep-2015||Journal:||BMC research notes||Abstract:||Diagnosis of congenital Chagas disease occurs at 9 months of age, making effective treatment challenging due to loss to follow-up. Mobile health (mHealth) has been utilized to improve communication and treatment adherence in many chronic diseases, although no studies of mHealth in Trypanosoma cruzi-infected individuals have been conducted. Text message interventions, a subset of mHealth, has shown to improve appointment attendance and is relatively simple to set up, thus making it an ideal mechanism to facilitate communication with individuals in low-resource settings.||URI:||http://sgc.anlis.gob.ar/handle/123456789/1473||DOI:||10.1186/s13104-015-1498-9|
