Introduction Modern methods and telemonitoring manage care and control of chronic diseases has improved, meanwhile, the hospital use traditional methods to teach their patients. Aim: to compare the effectiveness of three methods of follow-up (SMS, telephone and regular follow up) on the quality of life in heart failure patients. methods In the randomized clinical trial, , patients with heart failure admitted to  Emam Ali and Emam Reza hospitals were selected. The patients or dependent relatives… Expand

Comparing the Impact of Three Follow-Up Methods (Telephone, Educational Booklet, and SMS) on Self-Care Ability of Patients with Acute Coronary Syndrome: A Quasi-Experimental Study
SMS was associated with the highest score of self-care in patients with ACS, and it is proposed as the best follow-up method to enhance patients’ self- care ability and thus, help patients recover sooner and show reduced disease complications. Expand
mHealth education interventions in heart failure.
MHealth-delivered education interventions for people with heart failure showed no evidence of a difference in HF knowledge compared to usual care, and there was uncertainty in the evidence for the use of mHealth-Delivered education on HRQoL. Expand


Reducing Hospital Readmissions: Does Destination Matter?
Structured telephone support or non-invasive telemonitoring for patients with heart failure
A recent Cochrane review demonstrated that both non-invasive telemonitoring and structured telephone support offer statistically and clinically meaningful benefits to people with heart failure. Expand

While the medication adherence effect size across all studies was significant, the effect was modest and approaches to improving heart failure medication adherence may be most effective when focused on medication adherence alone, and when seeking to change behavior of patients, rather than health care provider behavior.

A pilot test of an integrated self-care intervention for persons with heart failure and concomitant diabetes.
An integrated HF-DM integrated self-Care intervention was effective in improving essential components of self-care and had sustained (90 day) effects on selected self- care behaviors. Expand
Heart failure beliefs and self-care adherence while being treated in an emergency department.
Lack of association between HF beliefs and self care (and trend of an inverse relationship) reflects a need for predischarge HF education, including an explanation of what HF means and how it can be better controlled through self-care behaviors. Expand
Social support and self-care behaviors in individuals with heart failure: an integrative review.
More research is needed to determine the effectiveness of social support on self-care behaviors in individuals with heart failure, since this review revealed mostly cross-sectional, correlational studies which limits the ability to infer causality. Expand
The Role of a Self-Directed Technology to Improve Medication Adherence in Heart Failure Patients
Whether a self-directed, web-based medical technology, ®, could improve medication adherence was determined and positive outcomes were also identified. Expand
The effect of a telephone follow-up intervention on illness perception and lifestyle after myocardial infarction in China: a randomized controlled trial.
This telephone follow-up intervention can result in improved illness perception and lifestyle after myocardial infarction and could be incorporated into current hospital treatment regimens for MI to improve patients' quality of life. Expand
Use of Mobile Phone Text Message Reminders in Health Care Services: A Narrative Literature Review
Although SMS reminders are used with different patient groups in health care, SMS is less systematically studied with randomized controlled trial study design, although the amount of evidence for SMS application recommendations is still limited, having 77% of the studies showing improved outcomes may indicate its use in health Care settings.

A short message service (SMS) intervention to prevent diabetes in Chinese professional drivers with pre-diabetes: a pilot single-blinded randomized controlled trial.
The SMS program proved to have potential to reduce the risk of developing diabetes at 12 months but additional measures should be integrated to prevent or delay disease progression. Expand
