DIGITAL PERSONAL CONNECTED HEALTH
Orlando, FL - February 19 - 20, 2017
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.
