Health care using telephone and telemonitoring technology benefits heart failure patients
Date:8/7/2010

ntrol group, and at a rate of 225 per 1000 with telemonitoring compared to 285 in a control group.

"There are benefits of structured telephone support and telemonitoring for patients with chronic heart failure," said lead researcher Dr Sally Inglis of Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute in Melbourne, Australia. "These technologies can provide specialised care to a large number of patients who otherwise may have limited access to this type of specialised healthcare."

Some studies also showed patients' quality of life improved and that health care costs had been reduced. "More work is required on the cost-effectiveness of telemonitoring to establish the best business models. These may vary depending on the local organisation of health services. The optimal duration of monitoring has not yet been addressed" said Dr Inglis.

This review can only reflect the individual included studies. Of all the relevant evidence on these technologies which was included in the review, some studies were not as well conducted or reported as the authors would have liked - a point picked up in an Editorial published to accompany the review.
