Remote monitoring is an emerging model of care in heart failure (HF) which has been shown to be clinically beneficial. In this study, patients were recruited to a new telemonitoring programme after referral to a community HF service. Following enrolment, there was a 58% reduction in the risk of HF admissions (0.71 vs. 0.30 per year, p<0.001). During the programme patients received, on average, nine home visits, eight telephone calls and three clinic appointments per person per year.
