The nurse is at the heart of the caregiving relationship in the remote monitoring of patients with heart failure equipped with an implantable device. Her direct contact with the patient erases the distance imposed by telemonitoring and her close connection with the cardiologist-arrhythmia specialist ensures the patient follow-up is optimal. After her training in telemedicine, the nurse plays a key role in the telerhythmology activity.

Given the prevalence of chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, obesity, epilepsy, and cardiovascular diseases, telemedicine technologies are increasingly adopted to help patients better manage their care and treat these diseases at home. These emerging telemedicine systems have been deployed and tested in a number of different health programs and hospitals. However, due to the lack of dedicated and reliable networking infrastructure, achieving real-time data collection is very challenging task. In this paper, we conduct a comprehensive analysis on the delay issues presented during the use of a store and forward telemonitoring system for congestive heart failure patients in urban Philadelphia...

Telemonitoring as part of a treatment strategy supports and facilitates the monitoring, disease management and education of patients with heart failure and cardiac arrhythmias. Therefore, telemonitoring affects quality and success of the therapy. Thus, meeting the needs of the patients and of the involved health care professionals is important for the success of the telemonitoring service. Moreover, a high quality of the service has to be ensured. The following article describes several configuration options for telemonitoring services considering technical as well as quality- and service-related aspects...

Telemonitoring (TM) features are implemented in nearly all cardiac implantable electronic devices (CIEDs) that have recently been released to the market. In combination with pacemakers, defibrillators and systems for cardiac resynchronization it is a safe and efficient method for routine technical aftercare of the devices as well as for monitoring heart failure and arrhythmias. Using TM has the potential to optimize patient care with regard to economic, clinical and safety aspects. Despite the good availability of existing data and clear recommendations of the responsible scientific societies, it is often seen as an isolated solution which is not fully integrated into standard care, although it has its own EBM number for implantable cardioverter-defibrillators and cardiac resynchronization therapy systems...

Non-device-based telemedical management can be useful to prevent decompensation and death in patients suffering from easily disequilibrated conditions like diabetes mellitus, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and heart failure (HF). This article summarizes current knowledge on non-device-based telemedical care for patients with HF. Several parameters (heart rate, heart rate variability, systolic blood pressure, pulse pressure, body weight, physical activity as derived from accelerometry, and occurrence of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias) have been identified as being associated with imminent clinical deterioration of HF patients...

Telemedicine applied to heart failure patients is a tool for recording and providing remote transmission, storage and interpretation of cardiovascular parameters and/or useful diagnostic images to allow for intensive home monitoring of patients with advanced heart failure, or during the vulnerable post-acute phase, to improve patient's prognosis and quality of life. Recently, several meta-analyses have shown that telemedicine-supported care pathways are not only effective but also economically advantageous...

Heart failure (HF) is one of the leading causes of morbidity and mortality and has a large effect on the country's economy. Although there have been major advances in HF monitoring, including more advanced pharmacological management and device-based therapy, HF-related mortality remains high. It is important to monitor HF so that HF-related hospitalization and mortality can be prevented. Due to the lower sensitivity of clinical features and biochemical markers, as well as the failure of telemonitoring in early detection of HF, more advanced techniques have been sought to more accurately predict impending HF, in order to address timely pharmacological management and prevent heart failure hospitalization (HFH)...

Long-term survival after left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation in heart failure patients is mainly determined by a sophisticated after-care. Ambulatory visits only take place every 12 weeks. In case of life-threatening complications (pump thrombosis, driveline infection) this might lead to delayed diagnosis and delayed intervention. It is the intention of the international project Medolution (Medical care evolution) to develop new approaches in order to create best structures for telemonitoring of LVAD patients...

Heart Failure (HF) is the most expensive preventable condition, regardless of patient ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, sex, and insurance status. Remote telemonitoring with timely outpatient care can significantly reduce avoidable HF hospitalizations. Human outreach, the traditional method used for remote monitoring, is effective but costly. Automated systems can potentially provide positive clinical, fiscal, and satisfaction outcomes in chronic disease monitoring. The authors implemented a telephonic HF automated remote monitoring system that utilizes deterministic decision tree logic to identify patients who are at risk of clinical decompensation...

BACKGROUND: Since clinical management of heart failure relies on weights that are self-reported by the patient, errors in reporting will negatively impact the ability of health care professionals to offer timely and effective preventive care. Errors might often result from rounding, or more generally from individual preferences for numbers ending in certain digits, such as 0 or 5. We apply fraud detection methods to assess preferences for numbers ending in these digits in order to inform medical decision making...
