Living with chronic 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 chronic 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
