MT2018-36 INSPIRE: A Multicenter Randomized Controlled Trial integrating health informatics in a scalable stepped care self-management program for survivors after hematopoietic cell transplantation


This study proposes that predictable health surveillance and unmet emotional needs of adult hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) survivors can be improved through a centralized, cost and resource-sparing, national program that optimizes health informatics and provides online expertise and telehealth selfmanagement stepped care when necessary. If successful, this project would provide long-term HCT survivors and their providers with a patient-centered program to facilitate managing their emotional and health care needs. Long-term HCT survivors do not receive adequate care for their unique health and emotional needs due to lack of knowledge and resources to manage these needs in their home communities, although many of these needs have been well defined. Lack of access to care increases premature morbidity and mortality in HCT survivors particularly for cardiovascular and metabolic disease (cardiometabolic) and subsequent malignancies.
