i-Matter Information & Resources for Study Participants
The Connected2Care Project team at NYU Langone’s Center for Healthful Behavior Change is committed to supporting i-Matter (Investigating an mHealth Texting Tool for Embedding Patient-Reported Data into Diabetes Management) study participants with the information and resources they need to successfully use the i-Matter patient-reported outcomes (PRO) texting tool.
The i-Matter PRO tool uses text messaging and journal reports to help patients who have type 2 diabetes track their diabetes-related behaviors like diet and physical activity, quality of life, and healthy living goals to better manage their disease and help improve conversations with their care providers.
