Question: For people with serious mental illness, how effective are information and communication technology-based prompting for treatment compliance, compared to any other intervention / no intervention, for increasing treatment compliance?


There was a lack of evidence supporting the use of ICT-based prompts in increasing medication compliance in adults with serious mental illness. Only one, moderate quality trial was found which found no significant difference between ICT-based prompts (text messaging) and standard care for medication compliance, regardless of how it was measured. More good quality research in this area is needed.
