Perspectives on Implementing Mobile Health Technology for Living Kidney Donor Follow-up: In-Depth Interviews with Transplant Providers.

Summary of "Perspectives on Implementing Mobile Health Technology for Living Kidney Donor Follow-up: In-Depth Interviews with Transplant Providers."

United States transplant centers are required to report follow-up data for living kidney donors for 2 years post-donation. However, living kidney donor (LKD) follow-up is often incomplete. Mobile health (mHealth) technologies could ease data collection burden but have not yet been explored in this context.
