APP: Transplant Hero
A transplant is a
life-saving procedure. But, it is only the first step in the patient's long term health. There are many medications that need to be taken and at all hours of the day to avoid organ rejection. The
Transplant Hero app helps patients gain control of their medication schedule. Patients can also invite family and friends to help them stay on track. Transplant Hero Guardians (caregivers) get access to the medication regimen and get alerts for taken or
missed doses. Recognizing that a strong support group is key to success, this closed network is a tool to increase communication and medical adherence.
Many transplant patients are children, and this app makes their medical regimen and its
adherence into a game.
