An Ecosystem for Objectively Monitoring and Improving Medication Adherence in Adolescent Transplant Recipients

We intend to find out whether wearing a wireless, lightweight, and fashionable ingestion-based medication adherence monitoring system (MAMS) in the form of neckwear (e.g. a necklace or Phiten) combined with effective incentives via social networks can change the behavior of pediatric/adolescent/adult patients post solid organ transplantation and significantly improve their medication adherence, while providing the clinicians with valuable information that can extend the transplant longevity, reduce healthcare costs, and improve the patients’ quality of life.

Investigators: Maysam Ghovanloo (Georgia Tech), Christina Choi (Georgia Tech), Mark Braunstein (Georgia Tech), Shri Deshpande (Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta), Brandon Aylward (Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center),
