AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Using mobile technologies to empower heart failure patients to self-monitor and participate in disease management

Management of heart failure involves attention to salt/fluid intake, control of blood pressure, and daily weight monitoring. Physical activity has been shown to reduce hospitalizations in patients with reduced cardiac function and it may also play a role in diastolic heart failure. Recording data on home-measured parameters and linking them to cardiac outcomes will provide information on optimal methods for use of mobile health and how it can help decrease cardiac events.
