Current Issue Highlights

Transplantation has long been known for its innovation in multidisciplinary care and long-term follow-up. This care is highly detailed and resource-intensive. In this month’s AJT, Schmid et al report on a randomized, controlled trial in living donor renal transplant recipients testing the effectiveness of telemedicine to facilitate outpatient case management, and demonstrate that it leads to a reduction in healthcare utilization, reduced healthcare costs, lower nonadherence, and better disease-specific quality of life. As the number of patients surviving with transplants continues to grow, innovations like these will be important in continuing high-quality, lifelong, multidisciplinary care.
