Improving Outcomes with Ingestible Sensors and Digital Medicine

February 20, 2017
2:30pm - 3:00pm
Plaza International G-H Ballroom

Transplant adolescent patients and their transition into adulthood is a particularly vulnerable time. This session describes the implementation of a FDA-cleared digital health offering consisting of an ingestible sensor and digital medications to focus on enhancing clinical patient outcomes at Children’s Medical Center of Dallas, a 487-bed pediatric hospital and a leading pediatric transplant center in the United States. 

This digital health program was built upon the hospital’s existing robust remote patient monitoring infrastructure. This program lets clinicians help patients stay on track outside of the clinic with medication taking, bridging the current gap of reported patient medication adherence and empowering patients to become more in-tune and involved in their home care management.

Takeaways

  • Best practice in digital health implementations requires cross-functional collaboration across hospital teams.
  • Proper implementation to ensure success should account for the current clinical workflow.
  • Digital health technology plays an important role in understanding patient behaviors, such as medication-taking, to identify gaps.
  • Objective mediation adherence information provides understanding of medication taking habits to adjust plan of care as necessary.
