Public health officials in three central California counties will be using a medication management app to help tuberculosis patients stick to their schedules.
 
Officials in Contra Costa, Fresno and Merced counties are contracting with Emocha Mobile Health in a bid to curb the region’s high rate of latent tuberculosis. The app, miDOT, enables users to record and send a video of the medication being taken, as well as answer questions from a doctor or nurse about symptoms and general health.
