Telehealth Monitoring in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
The Efficacy of Telehealth Monitoring in the Management of Patients With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

The the aim of this study is to determine the benefits of Telehealth monitoring in the management of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a major burden on healthcare systems worldwide. The current management of patients with COPD includes well established interventions such as pulmonary rehabilitation and inhaled therapies which have demonstrated variable impact on reducing rates of exacerbation and improving health related quality of life.

Telehealth is a home monitoring system used to record clinical observations and carry out question and answer sessions. It has been proposed that Telehealth medicine may offer an alternative strategy to the overall management of these patients.

Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
Device: Telehealth monitoring system (Honni Med)
The system is uploaded with personal information including: monitoring start time; clinical observations (blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen saturations); and questions relating to symptoms. The patient is instructed on use and observed monitoring. The patient is monitored daily for a period of six months. The monitoring session lasts approximately 10 minutes during which the patient attaches a finger probe and blood pressure cuff and responds 'yes' or 'no' to the set questions. Daily data is transmitted via a phone line to a secure server to be downloaded and reviewed by a Telehealth nurse.If one or more of the clinical observations is outside normal limits the appropriate healthcare intervention is utilised.
Other Name: Honni Med
  • No Intervention: standard care
    A standardised home based programme of specialist respiratory assessment and monitoring provided by the local Community Respiratory Team (CRT) and General Practitioner (GP) for a period of six months.
  • Experimental: Telehealth monitoring
    Daily monitoring of patient's health status using a small telecommunications device.
