Smartphones to Improve Rivaroxaban ADHEREnce in Atrial Fibrillation

The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of an intervention with a mobile adherence platform, compared to physician- or nurse-guided standard of care, to improve medication adherence to rivaroxaban in participants who have recently initiated treatment with rivaroxaban for stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation based on an assessment of the proportion of days covered (PDC) of rivaroxaban treatment.

Stanford is currently not accepting patients for this trial.
