Symptom Monitoring in Children With Life-Threatening Illness: A Feasibility Study Using mHealth.
Children with life-threatening illness (C-LTI) experience considerable symptom distress. Mobile technology may offer opportunities to better obtain symptom data that will lead to better symptom management. A mixed-methods study was conducted to explore the feasibility of monitoring and visualizing symptoms using 2 mobile health devices in C-LTI. Participants engaged with the Apple Watch 56% and recorded in the study app 63% of their study days. Our findings showed feasibility of using mobile technology for monitoring symptoms and further explored opportunities to visualize these data showing symptom occurrences, patterns, and trajectories in C-LTI.
