  • Heart Failure


Invasive telemonitoring has shown promising results in reducing readmissions and health service utilization, and improving patient outcomes; however, such evidence is lacking for non-invasive telemonitoring. Our proposal is to deploy a wearable solution that predicts physiological perturbation comparable to invasive devices and to perform continuous remote patient monitoring; this will be connected to a structured, cascading, escalation pathway involving home health nurses, advanced practitioner providers, specialists, and surgeons, and has the potential to transform care management in the post-discharge period, where patients are the most vulnerable for readmission.
