Weight and heart rate / blood pressure data are automatially transmitted via Bluetooth to avoid incorrect manual ntries. The patient verifies and approves the measurements before they are transmitted to an IBM backend HIT application. This further mitigates the transmission of erroneous data.
When changing the medication, an updated medication list from the EPM (electronic patient medication modules) is produced and the nurse can discuss with and show the patient his/her data and the new medication dose via video conference. The updated medication list is subsequently sent via the HIT application.
The HIT application is further integrated with LABKA system in order to receive blood test results and with master data from GS Open EPR system. The patient uses the national digital signature NemID to log on to the web-based HIT application where they can see their own measured data and provide comments for the nurses.
Expected Project Outcomes
The main outcomes of the project are:
- An integrated Telemonitoring platform for patients with heart diseases.
- A carer application that integrate relevant data in a single user interface.
- Evaluation of organisational effectiveness from the telemonitoring platform.
- Evaluation of users satisfaction with the telemonitoring solution.
In-Jet’s role in the project
In-JeT is the device integration partner providing the LinkWatch data collection platform to the project. We develop the user interface for the patient and the web service interfaces to IBM WebSphere Sensor Event Server. We also establish the video conferencing link to the patient.
