Preferences for mHealth Technology and Text Messaging Communication in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes: Qualitative Interview Study

Summary: Diabetes Self-Management Via mHealth: Some patients expressed hesitation about the potential intrusiveness of the technology, but still reported being open to incorporating it as a cue to make medication taking (e.g., take the pill before the coffee) more automatic and less burdensome. Patients preferred simple and positively framed communication (e.g., "... encouragement" rather than 'You missed this,' " p. 6). The importance of customization to text content was also relevant and salient to the patients.
