What is iMedA?

iMedA stands for Improving Medication Adherence through Person-Centered Care and Adaptive Interventions and is a research study in collaboration between Halmstad University and Region Halland. Within this study, we will develop a mobile application to support persons with hypertension in different ways. This can for example be by reminding them to take the medication, providing education regarding hypertension, medication and lifestyle, bring motivation to take action as well as increase awareness about health status and the consequences of high blood pressure.

The purpose of iMedA is to improve the quality of life in a long term perspective. The projekt aims to improve blood pressure control and taking medications in persons with hypertension through adaptive and personalised support.
