Antiretroviral prescription pick-up and physician follow-up after hospital discharge among medically complex people with HIV


In this study, only 22 of 206 (10.7%) socially marginalized individuals living with HIV and multiple comorbid conditions filled a prescription for antiretroviral therapy within 7 days of discharge from an HIV specialty hospital, despite comprehensive discharge planning. Additional interventions facilitating postdischarge continuity of care are required for this population.
