Telehealth service for patients after AMI and on anticoagulation treatment

Keywords: Cardiology, Diabetes, Heart Attacks (AMI), Telehealth, Telemedicine
Short description
The practice introduces remote monitoring of elderly patients who are hospitalized for acute infarct of myocardium (AMI) in cases of newly diagnosed (or until then unknown diagnosis of) diabetes using telehealth services and patients on anticoagulation treatment. The patients are telemonitored for AMI relapse, unstable angina pectoris and need of further interventional or chirurgic revascularization. This good practice was initiated by experienced cardiologists who recognized need for improvement of care for mostly senior patients hospitalized for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) and other cardiacs. The purpose of the practice is to support patients at home, early detect frequent comorbidity (diabetes) and respond to unwanted development of INR of patients in anticoagulation regime.
Proof of concept is available: it works in a test setting and the potential end-users are positive about the concept
