Publication CardioCoach paper

06 April 2018

From 2014, the hospitals Virga Jesse Ziekenhuis Hasselt and Ziekenhuis Oost-Limburg have been working together with Remedus to realize the Care Living Lab project CardioCoach. With the CardioCoach project, we intended to support the health-care provider and the patient through the use of ICT (hardware/software/intelligent algorithms) to more efficiently and more easily apply the ESC guidelines on medication intake concerning heart failure. The patient was continuously monitored at home via a smartphone application, through which it was possible to quickly and timely respond to the health-care needs of the patient. That way, the safety of the care at home could be guaranteed.

This week, the results of the study have been published in the Journal of Medical Internet Research (JMIR) Cardio. The follow-up tool CardioCoach for uptitration at a distance turned out to be an attainable and secure solution and it efficiently facilitated information exchange between health-care providers, with very high patient satisfaction (about the device as well as concerning medication intake). The publication in full can be found here: https://cardio.jmir.org/2018/1/e8/.
