We conducted a systematic review of the literature for assessing the value of home monitoring for heart failure (HF) patients. The abstracts of 383 articles were read. We excluded those in which either no home monitoring was done or only the technical aspects of the telemedicine application were described. Forty-two studies met the selection criteria. We classified the results into feasibility (technical and institutional) and impact (on the clinical process, on patient health, on accessibility… Expand
Home telemonitoring in patients with chronic heart failure: a chance to improve patient care?
TLDR
The data suggest thattelemonitoring is effective, yet there is no evidence for superior outcomes with any particular model of care incorporating telemonitoring (i.e., monitoring of vital signs versus structured telephone monitoring). Expand
Systematic review of studies on telemonitoring of patients with congestive heart failure: a meta-analysis
TLDR
Telemonitoring in conjunction with nurse home visiting and specialist unit support can be effective in the clinical management of patients with CHF and help to improve their quality of life. Expand
Evaluating the evidence base for the use of home telehealth remote monitoring in elderly with heart failure.
TLDR
Information and communication technology offers promise for better coordination of care for patients with congestive heart failure and more data are needed to determine the ideal patient population, technology, and parameters, frequency and duration of telemonitoring, and the exact combination of case management and close monitoring that would assure consistent and improved outcomes with cost reductions.

Remote Monitoring of Patients With Heart Failure: An Overview of Systematic Reviews
TLDR
Telemonitoring and home telehealth appear generally effective in reducing heart failure rehospitalization and mortality and other interventions, including the use of mobile phone–based monitoring and videoconferencing require further investigation. Expand
Effects of Home Telemonitoring Interventions on Patients With Chronic Heart Failure: An Overview of Systematic Reviews
TLDR
Evidence from high-quality reviews with meta-analysis indicated that taken collectively, home telemonitoring interventions reduce the relative risk of all-cause mortality and HF-related hospitalizations, suggesting that further research is very likely to have an important impact on confidence in the observed estimates of effect. Expand
Insufficient evidence of benefit: a systematic review of home telemonitoring for COPD.
TLDR
The benefit of telemonitoring for COPD is not yet proven and that further work is required before wide-scale implementation be supported, but the study reports are themselves positive about their results. Expand
Telemonitoring can assist in managing cardiovascular disease in primary care: a systematic review of systematic reviews
TLDR
Telemonitoring has the potential to enhance primary care management of CVD by improving patient outcomes and reducing health costs, but further research needs to explore the specific elements of telemonitoring interventions to determine the relative value of the various elements. Expand
Twenty years of telemedicine in chronic disease management – an evidence synthesis
  • R. Wootton
  • Medicine
  • Journal of telemedicine and telecare
  • 2012
TLDR
The evidence base for the value of telemedicine in managing chronic diseases is on the whole weak and contradictory. Expand
Health Technology Assessment of Home Monitoring for the Continuity of Care of patient suffering from congestive heart failure
TLDR
HTA results lead to conclude that HM is more effective and efficient if compared to the benchmark, but seems to be not costeffective ifCompared to DMPs. Expand
Policy expectations and reality of telemedicine – a critical analysis of health care outcomes, costs and acceptance for congestive heart failure
TLDR
Policy-makers and other stakeholders should increase their efforts to consolidate isolated telemedicine projects, establish guidelines for clinical treatment procedures and economic evaluations, and define industry/technical device standards to enhance the comparability of interventions. Expand
