AVIRO MOBILE: HIV Nurse Mentor
An app designed for nurses treating HIV
Aviro is the flagship mobile health application for Aviro Health. Perfectly suited to nurses, the Aviro ART Treatment Mentor is an app designed to help nurses in primary care settings to efficiently treat HIV patients.
Nurses load the app onto their mobile phones. Based on South African clinical guidelines, it enables nurses to determine whether a patient is eligible for ARV treatment, what drugs to use and when to start treatment.
The app goes a step further by providing access to a referral system and the HIV hotline. Aviro provides real-time, immediate feedback and guidance for the clinician, so that excellent and reliable care can be delivered to every patient.
