Terminating Immunosuppressant Non-Compliance: Txt Me If You Want to Live...

Compliance is a problem with all medication, but when it’s for immunosuppressants after a transplant it can mean life or death. A group of 41 teens from Mount Sinai Hospital in New York who had had liver transplants were texted once a day to remind them to take their medications. Only two experienced rejections, compared to 12 in a similar group the year before.

More evidence to support SMS/mHealth efforts.

As @susannahfox said back in 2007 - "Go mobile."
