Abstract

The care of patients suffering from chronic diseases is a growing source of expense for healthcare services around the world. The implementation of new models for patients’ treatment and follow-up needs to be faced in order to increase patients’ quality of life and to reduce the costs associated. In this paper we propose a point-of-care for home care scenarios that is based on the remote monitoring of biomedical parameters.
