Abstract

The goal of this study was to illustrate the translation of our extant eHealth intervention (VIP) into an mHealth app for persons living with HIV (PLWH) with HIV-Associated non-AIDS (HANA) conditions, a new clinical problem. We integrated different quantitative and qualitative methodologies from different disciplines to accomplish the task of adapting an eHealth system for a new set of clinical problems. Building off of our past development of the VIP website, we used a multi-modal, iterative user-centered design process to develop the VIP-HANA app. Our process was used to better understand the needs of a national sample of PLWH recruited online. Findings from the usability evaluation demonstrate a potentially useful and easy to use app. Integration of multi-modal methodologies from different fields to accomplish the tasks of adaptation and evaluation of a mobile app is an appealing, rigorous and useful approach.
