Support-HF is a prescribed digital therapeutic for monitoring heart failure at home.

Heart failure is the leading cause of hospital admissions for those aged 65 years and older and admissions are expected to rise by 50% over the next 25 years1. Support-HF is a digital therapeutic comprised of a software application for use on a patient's tablet device, together with a patient monitoring website accessible by healthcare professionals only, and able to be operated as a managed service.*

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.

Tablet technology

Support-HF uses state-of-the-art, multi-purposeAndroid tablet technology, with Bluetooth-enabled sensors. This can improve a patient’s quality of life by supporting them to live independently and can provide patients with greater reassurance.

83%
...of patients can use the system alone, without needing help.
4.5 days
After 45 weeks of observation, participants still used the system on 4.5 days per week.
~90 sec
Patients could complete their daily monitoring tasks in ~90 seconds.
