Colon Cancer Clinical Trial
RCT of Mobile Apps & FitBit v. Usual Care
This is a randomized clinical trial to evaluate the use of mobile devices in preventing readmission in patients undergoing major GI cancer operations.
Patients will be randomized to 1) standard of care or 2) to use our mobile app with standard care. The mobile app will collect information on patients' daily physical activity patterns and health status data for clinicians using smartphone mobile technology applications. The investigators believe that by tracking information on patients, the investigators may be able to intervene sooner and prevent a delay in care.
