> Telemonitoring system of Heart Failure patients that requires minimal user interaction
Type proposer: Healthcare organization
Heart Failure (HF) is one of the most prevalent conditions in Europe, and it is expected that will keep on growing in the future. There is already technology available to telemonitor chronic HF patients in order to prevent episodes that end up in hospitalization. To name a few: Alere, iHealth, Medisana, mHealthalert (powered by Qualcomm) or WinMedical.
However, current technology usually requires the pro-active participation of the patient to interact with the sensors or devices (including charging of batteries). This may end up with patient abandonment due to the periodic effort required or forgetfulness.
The requester of this need states that it would be desirable that the technology should be as transparent as possible to the patients. That is, it should require minimal interaction from their side (ideally none) between visits to their doctor. At the same time, it should effectively inform healthcare professionals or care givers when an action needs to be taken for the benefit of the patient.
Work on this challenge!
Health organisations across Europe are looking for innovative solutions to solve their needs. However, they don't know your solution exists, and they don't know that your exact solution can help solve their exact needs, but that's where we can help you.
If you have a solution or you want to work on this challenge, let us know!
