Developing and Assessing the Feasibility of a Home-based Preexposure Prophylaxis Monitoring and Support Program

Clin Infect Dis. 2019 Jan 18;68(3):501-504. doi: 10.1093/cid/ciy529.

Abstract

We piloted PrEP@Home, a preexposure prophylaxis system of remote laboratory and behavioral monitoring designed to replace routine quarterly follow-up visits with home care to reduce the patient and provider burden. The system was highly acceptable and in-demand for future use, and more than one-third of participants reported greater likelihood of persisting in care if available.
