    Abstract

    Remote patient monitoring (RPM) has been considered a highly potential and cost-effective means to increase patient's motivation for self-care. The paper describes an architecture which combines decision support (DS) functionality with the RPM system. The new approach provides automatic feedback to patients while health professionals are only alerted when there is a need to review the patient data or contact the patient. The objective is to decrease the workload of the health professionals while maintaining high quality and patient compliance in chronic disease care. The combined RPM/DS system is being implemented in a primary care environment for a clinical trial to be carried out for evaluation of the concept.
