Abstract

Current health scenarios have witnessed increased attention for home care as a way to enhance the quality of service provision and reduce costs. In recent times, Clinical Information Systems (CISs) have undergone significant development and they now include useful applications for doctors, nurses and other health professionals. The present work investigates the possible integration of a home-based telemonitoring system within a CIS to enhance its potentials. Test results showed a smooth integration and highlighted multiple advantages such as use of a single interface for the management of several data types, inclusion of health-related data about in-hospital and home periods, workflow creation and check points during home care provision, use of consistent criteria for data security and privacy protection.
