Summary of "Using qualitative research to reduce readmissions and optimize perioperative cystectomy care."

Preventable complications and readmissions after cystectomy may be detectable via postoperative monitoring of patient-reported outcomes (PROs). However, no study has defined meaningful PROs or the use of mobile communication devices (mobile health [mHealth]) to capture them. The objectives of this study were to determine which high-priority PROs influence patients' perioperative experience, what processes influence these outcomes, how patients and caregivers differ in their experiences, and how mHealth might be used to improve outcomes.
