The Community Preventive Services Task Force (CPSTF) recommends text messaging interventions
to improve medication adherence among patients with chronic diseases. “Health Information
Technology: Text Messaging Interventions for Medication Adherence Among Patients with
Chronic Diseases” is available at https://www.thecommunityguide.org/findings/health-information-technology-text-messaging-medication-adherence-chronic-disease.
Established in 1996 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the CPSTF
is an independent, nonfederal panel of public health and prevention experts whose
members are appointed by the director of CDC. The CPSTF provides information for a
wide range of persons who make decisions about programs, services, and other interventions
to improve population health. Although CDC provides administrative, scientific, and
technical support for the CPSTF, the recommendations developed are those of the task
force and do not undergo review or approval by CDC.
