The purpose of this study is to (1) describe patient and clinician engagement in web-based symptom self-monitoring, (2) identify differences in symptom management between intervention and usual care groups, and (3) identify potential outcomes of real-time symptom tracking and management. With the assistance of the study coordinator, participants randomized to the intervention will create an account with Noona. Patients will be instructed to log symptoms as often as relevant using their own personal devices. Patients will also be prompted once per week for 24 weeks to log any recent symptoms. These participants will be sent a Symptom Questionnaire (SQ) via the Noona tool that summarizes their symptoms and distress one week prior to each oncology clinic visit. Symptoms designated as clinically severe either during regular symptom logging or via the SQ will trigger a prompt to contact the clinical team for immediate follow-up.

This study uses a smartphone application/web interface (RealTime Clinic; RTC) to collect patient and parent reports of a pediatric liver transplant recipient's quality of life (QOL), and examines the extent to which QOL evaluations can be integrated into care with the help of the application. The QOL measure that is used in this study is the Pediatric Liver Transplant Quality of Life (PeLTQL) questionnaire. Utilization, effectiveness, and efficiency data are evaluated. Hypotheses are fully described in the protocol. The primary hypothesis is that 80% of recruited child-proxy dyads will have at least one RTC-enabled PeLTQL score at 12 months. Other hypotheses look at implementation metrics and patient outcomes.
