Purpose of Study 

Modern technology like computers, smartphones and the Internet enable patients to measure certain health indicators, like blood pressure and body weight, from the comfort of their own homes. This information can also be shared electronically with doctors and other healthcare providers to monitor remotely. This is called home health monitoring. In TEC4Home, we are developing a home monitoring solution for patients with heart failure to support their care and recovery at home after a visit to the emergency department. We hope to show that this solution decreases revisits to the emergency department and increases quality of life for patients.
