Congestive Heart Failure

Remote Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) care

Living with congestive heart failure is a source of stress and discomfort for patients. Innovating the care for this patient group is an important aspect when rethinking the healthcare systems of the future.

Telehealth tools that can monitor patients with chronic conditions such as congestive heart failure (CHF) remotely can provide patient insights and help reduce the burden on healthcare systems. At the same time, the technology can engage and encourage the patients to take an active role in their own disease management.

With Remote Patient Monitoring, CHF patients measure their vital signs and answer questions on their wellbeing daily and in the comfort of their own home. The questionnaire is designed by the healthcare provider in accordance with the hospital guidelines. Questionnaire design can include measurements of vitals such as blood pressure, pulse and weight. In this way, health changes can be detected early, and early intervention steps can be taken. See the research

Benefits for the healthcare provider

  • Accompany your patients continuously between consultations
  • Provide a more holistic view of a patient’s health over time
  • Increase visibility into a patient’s adherence to a treatment
  • Enable early intervention 

Benefits for the patients

  • Support to an active life by daily monitoring of the patients’ wellbeing
  • Increased patient engagement through involvement and health history
  • Early intervention leads to fewer and shorter hospital stays
  • Less travel and days off work

Remote Management of Heart Failure: An Overview of Telemonitoring Technologies

NCBI, May 2019

It is not difficult to collect data remotely, but converting more data into better decision-making that improves the outcome of care is challenging. Meta-analysis of Standalone Telemonitoring Systems with other (small) studies suggested mortality benefit and a reduction in HF (but not all-cause) hospitalisation.

e-Health in cardiology: remote patient management of heart failure patients

European Society of Cardiology, Jul 2020

Telemedicine in HF patients is considered to be a relevant innovation that improves conventional HF outpatient care. The most beneficial HF patient group is patients at high risk, who were recently hospitalised due to HF in functional classes II and III, which represents approximately 20% of the total HF population.
