Congestive Heart failure (CHF) is a major health issue affecting 6.5 million people in the U.S. alone. Current reimbursement policies use readmission rates and length of hospital stays as indicators of quality of care. This project aimed to improve patients’ self-monitoring practices post-hospital discharge, quickly identify critical warning signs, decrease readmissions and reduce healthcare costs by integrating remote monitoring ePRO and connected devices into standard outpatient care practices.
