Participants must have SCD (HbSS, HbSC, HbSβ0 thalassemia, HbSβ+ thalassemia, HbSOArab), within the age range of 8 - 21 years, and be admitted to the hospital for vaso-occlusive crisis (VOE)-related pain. The investigators will also collect Proxy PROMIS measures from parents of participants between the ages of 8 and 17-years who have agreed to participate in the study.
All participants will use the PROMIS for Pain Management App over 5 consecutive weeks (starting at hospital discharge).
Other: PROMIS for Pain Management App
At hospital discharge, the investigators will collect baseline surveys, a blood sample, and download the PROMIS for Pain Management App onto the subject's mobile device. For five consecutive weeks, PROMIS measures will be collected through weekly surveys. The investigators plan to compensate patients for their time. Patients will come back to the hospital after 35 days for a final blood draw and set of surveys. In the event a patient gets readmitted, the investigators will record that admission. The investigators will also collect Proxy PROMIS measures from parents of participants between the ages of 8 and 17-years who have agreed to participate in the study. It is the goal of the investigators to engage one of the parents in the reporting of weekly validated Proxy PROMIS measures.
Other Name: SCD-PROMIS
- Readmission rate [ Time Frame: 35 days ]The investigators want to determine if the use of this mobile app by itself reduces readmission rates. The investigators will compare the readmission rate of patients who use this mobile app with those who do not.
- Readmission risk [ Time Frame: 35 days ]The rate of hospital readmission will be estimated by time periods (e.g., 1, 2, 3, and 4 weeks after discharge).
- Patient Compliance [ Time Frame: 35 days ]To evaluate our app design features, the investigators will track each user's interaction with the app for post-analysis to determine time spent answering the questions and the value of reminders. It is the investigators intent to determine if features will be used as intended by the app design.
- Patient Usability [ Time Frame: 35 days ]At the end of five weeks the investigators will administer a survey to parents and participants to determine the usability of this app.This information will lead to improvements on the design of future iterations of the app.
