Telehealth presents numerous benefits to patients living with heart failure. As technology develops, an increasing number of clinicians will utilize telehealth to improve patient outcomes and reduce hospital admissions. A recent randomized control trial took a deep dive into the efficacy of telehealth with the heart failure patient population. The study concluded that remote monitoring interventions can reduce length of hospital stay and decrease mortality related to heart failure.
The benefits of telehealth among patients with heart failure have been proven in the literature. Much of the research in this space focuses on using telehealth during episodes of home care. However, patients with heart failure can continue to benefit from remote monitoring after discharge from home care. A recent randomized controlled trial sought to confirm this hypothesis by exploring the efficacy of home telemonitoring with heart failure patients after the completion of home care.
