Text messaging has been used to notify patients of results after sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing. This study aimed to characterise the population who refused notification of results by short message services (SMS) and to explore their reasons for refusing. From January to August 2018, 1180 patients coming for STI testing in a Parisian sexual health centre were offered SMS notification of their results, completed a self-administered questionnaire and were included in the study. Factors associated with refusal of SMS notification were explored using logistic regression models. Reasons for refusal were analysed following a qualitative content analysis methodology. In the study population, 7.3% [95% CI 5.8–8.8] of patients refused SMS notification. In the multivariate logistic regression model, male gender and older age were associated with refusal, as were non-French nationality, having forgone health care for economic reasons and being unemployed. Qualitative analysis showed that preferring face-to-face medical contact (32%) and anxiety about the test result (29%) were the main reasons given by patients for refusal. Socially disadvantaged patients may have more limited access to technology and be less at ease using it in a health context. Preference for face-to-face medical contact may reflect the need for human support in vulnerable populations.

Tutoring service is essential for students who require extra academic guidance in learning, especially in primary and secondary education levels. The common problems encountered by any students are the difficulties in finding the suitable tutors based on their preferred choice. The current existing web applications are still lack of responsive elements where they just only provide the fill-in form to search for the tutors. Therefore, the aim of this study is to address the inherent issue in finding suitable tutor match among the students and teachers by utilizing responsive filtering feature and SMS notification technology. The inclusion of these features is crucial to ensure that both parties informed on the appointment arrangement and status. The system known as GRAB Tutor Management System is targeted the secondary students especially the SPM candidates. This study adapts and simplifies System Development Life Cycle methodology into Three-Phase Model in designing and developing the system. The three phases are analysis, development, and evaluation phase. Each phase carries specific activities to accomplish the aim of this study and successfully delivered the proposed solution. GRAB Tutor Management System undergone a series of testing to evaluate its functionalities and acceptability. Functionality testing involved four expert and novice users, meanwhile user acceptance testing was conducted with 30 participants of secondary schoolteachers and students. The functionality test result revealed that all features are well functioned and successfully delivered. The user acceptance testing result indicates positive acceptance with the overall mean score is 4.64, which shown that the participants are agreed that this system is acceptable, easy to use and useful. It is proven that this study has successfully delivered a web-based Grab Tutor Management System with SMS Notifications that is useful for the tutors and students

The surge of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) among young people is of public health importance, and the notification and treatment of sex partners after the diagnosis of an STI is a public health approach to prevent and reduce further transmissions. There are limited studies that investigate partner notification among young people in general, and university students in South Africa in particular. We investigated self-reported STIs and partner notification practice, intentions, and preferences among university students. We also assessed their STI knowledge and risky sexual behaviour in relation to STIs. The study was a descriptive cross-sectional survey that used multistage sampling to select 918 students across the five schools of a health sciences university in South Africa. Descriptive statistics and bivariate logistic analysis were performed using Stata IC version 16. More males (54.1%) than females were currently in a sexual relationship (47.3%), more males reported multiple sexual partners (n = 114, 46%), engaged in transactional sex (n = 13, 5.3%), and had one-night stands (n = 68, 28.1%) in the past 12 months (p = 0.001). Moreover, half (55.9%) had poor knowledge of STIs with an overall mean knowledge score of 2.9 ± 2.0, and the majority (85.8%) perceived themselves to be at low risk of acquiring STIs. The odds of intentions to disclose an STI infection to a sexual partner and delivering a partner notification slip to ex-sexual partners were not statistically significant (p = 0.95; p = 0.10), with the likelihood of disclosure being 1.3 times for female students compared to males. Female students were 1.5 times as likely to prefer a doctor to send an SMS notification to their sexual partners (p = 0.02) compared to their male counterparts, while the preference of an SMS notification was 41% (p = 0.03) among female students. Students engaged in risky behaviours but had a low perception of the risks of acquiring STIs. Although they had preferences of different methods of partner notification, both male and female students preferred SMS partner notifications from a doctor, even though women were in the majority. Health care providers should put in place interventions so that young people can safely inform their partners about STIs.

Abstract In the development of mortal civilization, farming assumes a key part. Individuals are taking a stab at giving extra endeavor likewise extraordinary ways to deal with duplicate food presentation as a result of the expanded interest for food. One such activity is the utilization of different advances for horticulture. As IoT sensors are equipped for giving horticultural field data and afterward following up based on crack information, keen cultivating is an arising term. The rising need of sustenance, in respects with total and greatness, has expanded the interest for the farming area to heighten and industrialize. The IoT is a very reassuring family of robotizations having able in giving various answers for rural modernization In this work, the development of a wise ranch structure utilizing the guaranteed winner of progressive automation including Arduino Uno, Web of Things and Remote Sensor Organization is proposed. The element of this paper is the improvement of a framework is utilized to control temperature, moistness, mugginess and furthermore the mediation of creatures through sensors to execute crops in the farming area utilizing the Arduino board in case of any distinction, following ecological conditions utilizing 3G/4G/5G/Wi-Fi modules are considered as major ingredient in achieving the yield of productive crops, and sending the SMS notification and an application notification designed similar towards producer's smart phone making use of 3G/4G/5G/Wi-Fi modules. There are a few examination issues identified with sensors and their organizations due to the meaning of sensor innovation. A portion of the significant sensor network issues for which a few arrangements have been proposed by scientists are energy requirements, restricted handling power, little memory and information security. The work fundamentally centers in investigating the requirement for remote sensors in various fields of agribusiness additionally tells the new progression in the IoT market, need of robotization in horticulture area likewise what all difficulties ranchers are confronting utilizing IoT.

In this study we propose a low-cost portable device to monitor the vertigo and syncope patients whether normal, dizziness or falls. The purpose of this study is design and manufactures a device using an accelerometer sensor to determining the condition of patients who are at risk of vertigo and syncope. The patient's condition is detected by accelerometer which read the values of the x, y and z axes to determine condition normal, dizzy, or fall. This device also uses a real time clock to remind the patient to take medication three times a day. The device outputs are LCD Oled, Voice, and SMS notification. If the patient condition is falls an SMS notification will be sent, the dizzy condition vertigo patient will press the panic button first and then an SMS notification will be sent. The results of tests carried out on the equipment can send SMS and phone calls at an angle of (50o - 70o) = Y (40o - 20o) = X, in a fainting state and falling. The test results of the navigation module prove that the GPS module can determine the exact location by moving the GPS module reading position to a small test point with an average of 2.97 meters.
