App for people living with HIV/AIDS.

“The advantages of the app are: the agenda of the therapy is set by the user (with memos warning of the time to take the drugs). It offers a schedule for appointments, consultations, examinations, with advice about approaching events. The app also has a daily diary, with an agenda on which to record information and appointments. It lists health centres and pharmacies, and has much more information. It can manage multiple patients simultaneously. The disadvantages are: some typos exist in the names of drugs. And it has some incorrect information about the test centres.” Network Persone Sieropositive (NPS) [Network of Serum-Positive People] Emilia Romagna Onlus, Italy | PatientView survey, July 2012
