Abstract

In Switzerland all children's liver transplants are centralized at the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG) since 1989. Approximately 150 children have received transplants since then, and their survival rate is higher than 90%--one of the highest in Europe. Maximizing the chances of long-term success requires that patients comply with follow-up treatment, something which mandates a sound understanding of their medical condition. The KidsETransplant project aims to help the child--and his family--to understand better his state of health. To this end, our tool offers secured, unrestricted access to the patient's medical record, with a view to both increase patient autonomy and improve communication with healthcare professionals. This paper describes KidsETransplant, as well as its implemented evaluation process.
