Abstract

CUORE is a Heart Failure (HF) Disease Assessment System that makes use of innovative approaches, based on Information Technologies (IT) and portable monitoring devices, for the continuous assessment of HF progression and cardiovascular risk stratification. The system valuates the cardiac condition integrating patient data from different sources with special emphasis in the information obtained for ECG processing. Rather than just evaluate the cardiovascular status, the system also aims to motivate patients to have an active role in their health management and to improve their cardiac condition by promotion of an active lifestyle. In order to make the system usable the methodology adopted to create the final solution is iterative and it involves users in all stages. This paper presents the conceptualization of CUORE as a solution to self care for heart failure out of hospital patients.
