01/09/2019 Infectious Disease Notification via Text Not a Winner - Not All Patients Prefer Delivery of STI or HIV Screening Results Via SMS

Text messaging after an STI/HIV test is a cost-effective way to deliver results and improve patient care, but not all patients prefer this method. Throughout October 2016, a free health center at a university hospital in Paris invited 396 patients who received screening for STI and HIV to complete an anonymous self-administered questionnaire; 360 patients completed the survey. These patients were also offered the option of being notified of their results via SMS; 68% of patients chose this option, and 32% did not.

Using data collected from the 200 patients included, researchers conducted a match case-control study, in which patients who agreed to receive screening results via SMS were matched to patients who did not wish to do so. Study investigators found that participation in the SMS program was related to patient characteristics and not STI screening results or gravity of the diseases screened; specifically, HIV and hepatitis.
