Simple Self-Management

Heart failure patients are able to record data and access self-management tools at home to record automatically (via Bluetooth) their daily vital signs data on blood pressure and weight alongside subjective symptom information that is entered manually via the application.

Remote Management for Clinicians

Healthcare professionals can track their patients’ health remotely and use the data to support clinical decision-making via the website and ensure patients are on an optimum treatment plan, following NICE guidelines. This data can be shared with the specialist (cardiology) care team and the plan sent via email to the patient’s GP to implement.
