    Impact of SMS/GPRS printers in reducing time to early infant diagnosis compared to 4 routine result reporting: a systematic review and meta-analysis

    Vojnov, et al., present results from a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess the benefit of using short message service (SMS) and general packet radio service (GPRS) printers to increase the efficiency of early infant diagnosis (EID) test result delivery compared with traditional courier, paper-based result delivery methods. The authors found that SMS/GPRS result delivery to facilities significantly reduced test turn-around time and should be considered for expedited delivery of EID and other centralized laboratory test results. This paper has been accepted by the Journal of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and was published online in August 2017.
