Clinical Trial Summary

The idea behind the Future Patient research project is to develop a telerehabilitation program and tools for patients with heart failure.

The hypothesis for this study is that participation in a telerehabilitation program for patients with heart failure will increase the patients' quality of life and multiā€parametric (subjective and objective) individualized monitoring in a telerehabilitation program for patients with heart failure will increase detection of worsening of symptoms and avoid future hospitalization of the HF-patients.


Clinical Trial Description

The overall aim is to test, implement and evaluate a telerehabilitation program for patients with heart failure from clinical, psychosocial, health literacy and e-health literacy, inter-organizational, health economic and technical perspectives.

Furthermore, this study has sub aims:

- To increase the quality of life for patients with Heart Failure (HF)

- To optimize the medical treatment of patients with HF

- To perform multi-parametric (subjective and objective) individualized monitoring in order to detect worsening of symptoms and avoid hospitalizations

- To increase physical activities for patients with heart failure in everyday life in a telerehabilitation program

- To facilitate patient-initiated self-care management actions upon the following early detection of changes in source data (steps taken, weight, blood pressure, pulse, sleep, illness perception, motivation, anxiety and depression)

- To evaluate patients health literacy and e-health literacy participating in a telerehabilitation program and rehabilitation program

- To test and evaluate the Heart Portal - a digital toolbox for improved self-management for patients with heart failure and their relatives

- To explore the experiences and perspectives of the patients and their relatives when being part of a telerehabilitation program

- To test and evaluate a cross sector communication platform from a patient and healthcare professional perspective

- To perform a cost-effectiveness analysis of total costs of healthcare and rehabilitation services ;
