Vanderbilt University Medical Center is part of a 6-year, $4.4 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to improve the use of prescribed medication by sickle cell patients.
Funded by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (Grant No. 1U01HL133996-01), the new Sickle Cell Disease Implementation Program includes researchers from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the University of Memphis, Methodist University Hospital, Baptist Memorial Hospital and Vanderbilt.
The team will jointly develop, assess and integrate mobile health applications to manage hydroxyurea treatments among patients with sickle cell disease and identify barriers to medical care and any constraints on proper use of the medication.
In addition, the team will also make the findings of the study available nationwide to encourage best practice and wider use of hydroxyurea in the national sickle cell community.
