Thank you for visiting us and taking an interest in Aqueduct.
Our team specializes in building digital health innovations for underserved populations; you can learn more about our related projects here: Transcendent Endeavors. We came to learn about the appointment adherence problem from our partners in public health, who told us that no-shows were one of the most detrimental and persistent obstacles they faced. As we dug deeper into this topic, what fascinated us was not only the myriad reasons behind why patients miss their appointments, but also the vast body of knowledge available on how to address the challenges of non-adherence.
That reservoir of know-how was trapped in the form of journal articles and academic discourse. The missing link was an efficient way to channel those best practices to the frontline, so that clinics could readily adopt them. We set out to build just such a conduit. With the support of an NIH innovation research award, we have spent the past few years poring over the evidence base, gathering user requirements, and building a behavior incentive platform that brings proven techniques into everyday practice.
Our work is just getting started. We look forward to supporting you in your patient engagement efforts!
