Health Disparities Study Tests Mobile App’s Effectiveness in Treating Alcohol Use Disorder
A cell phone app may soon become an effective way in treating alcohol use disorder (AUD) — and, possibly other chronic conditions — thanks to a pilot study underway at the University of Minnesota Medical School. Researchers teamed up with SupDoc, a virtual healthcare app, to answer a question.
“In areas where there is not a lot of access to either primary care and/or mental health services, can we leverage technology, such as SupDoc, to help reach out to people with AUD and keep connected to a larger number of them while using fewer resources?” asked Christopher Warlick, MD, PhD, associate professor and head of the Department of Urology at the Medical School, who leads the study.
