Home Link System for Daily Monitoring of Outpatients

Despite landmark basic and clinical research advances in our understanding of the pathophysiology and treatment of CHF, the majority of patients are not receiving or applying optimal pharmacologic therapy or dietary and physical activity regimens. Effective management of congestive heart failure (CHF) is one of the most important challenges and opportunities confronting our health care delivery system. The Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Division of Cardiology and The Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory have developed medical procedures and associated telehealth monitoring system capabilities for the home monitoring and disease management of high risk outpatients suffering from congestive heart failure. The Home Link System provides for communication and data recording of patient information and automatic reading of selected in home medical sensors, a patient friendly device for in home use and representation of a patient management algorithm to assist the nurse and/or cardiologist in patient management.
