Abstract
Despite clinical advances in its treatment, heart failure (HF) is associated with significant adverse clinical outcomes and is among the greatest drivers of healthcare utilisation. Outpatient management of HF remains suboptimal, with gaps in the provision of evidence-based therapies, and difficulties in predicting and managing clinical decompensation. Remote patient monitoring has emerged as a promising avenue to tackle these quandaries, drawing heightened attention from HF clinicians and health systems. However, even after years of dedicated research and investment, a definitive solution that truly aligns with the demands and expectations of both clinicians, patients and payers is yet to be achieved. In this context, we delve into this intricate landscape of remote HF monitoring, the underlying disease state and an innovative solution all developed using the infamous Biodesign methodology during the BioInnovate programme.
