George Brown College students work with MEMOTEXT Patient Adherence Solutions on the research and development of a new patient adherence program.

George Brown College is collaborating with MEMOTEXT, a patient adherence and medication compliance company, to develop an inference-based telephone/short message service (SMS) based communications program for an overseas health stakeholder-based research project.

As part of a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) grant, with support from George Brown College’s Office of Applied Research and Innovation, this collaboration allows MEMOTEXT to work hands on with multiple George Brown students in their respective fields. The program focuses on identifying patients’ psychological, historical and literacy levels as barriers to following a Type 2 Diabetes treatment regimen. MEMOTEXT is working with students from the Information Systems Business Analyst, and Health Information Management programs; each bringing their own unique level of expertise to the project.
