Abstract

Heart failure is a common chronic condition requiring frequent attention and ongoing provision of healthcare services. In this context we present a personalized mobile-based home monitoring system aiming to support heart failure patients in daily self-monitoring of their condition. An Internet-linked tablet computer and various portable and wearable sensing devices are employed in order to monitor the patient's physiological parameters and enable healthcare professionals to review patient's status remotely. The proposed system supports the activation/deactivation of system functional components by healthcare professionals during run-time operation, the unobtrusive remote upgrade of the mobile system through a private application distribution channel, and the automatic recording of user interactions, in order to meet the patient's ongoing individualized preferences and healthcare needs. Preliminary results from an observational cohort study indicate that heart failure patients find the proposed system acceptable and consider it useful for self-monitoring their condition.
