Abstract

Patients with chronic disease may suffer frequent acute deteriorations and associated increased risk of hospitalisation. Earlier detection of these could enable successful intervention, improving patients’ well-being and reducing costs; however, current telemonitoring systems do not achieve this effectively. We conducted a qualitative study using stakeholder interviews to define current standards of care and user requirements for improved early detection telemonitoring. We determined that early detection is not a concept that has informed technology or service design and that telemonitoring is driven by the available technology rather than by users’ needs. We have described a set of requirements questions to inform the design and implementation of telemonitoring systems and suggested the research needed to develop successful early detection telemonitoring. User-centred design and genuine interdisciplinary approaches are needed to create solutions that are fit for purpose, sustainable and address the real needs of patients, clinicians and healthcare organisations.
