BALTIMORE--Children who need life-changing heart transplants in Florida will be able to receive free support to help improve medication adherence, which can potentially reduce the frequency of organ rejection over the next two years, thanks to a National Institutes of Health (NIH)/National Heart Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award for $1.67M to Scene Health (formerly emocha Health), a leading video medication adherence platform.

Principal investigators Dr. Dipankar Gupta, M.D., pediatric transplant physician at the University of Florida’s Congenital Heart Center, and Dr. Michael Killian, Ph.D., MSW, a College of Social Work faculty member at Florida State University, will lead the joint project enabling pediatric transplant physicians in Florida to deploy Scene’s platform to provide personalized interventions to improve overall medication adherence to immunosuppressive therapy, prevent related hospitalizations, and reduce the potential of rejection among adolescent heart transplant patients.
