Technologies for Ageing in Place to Support Home Monitoring of Patients with Chronic Diseases

Alexandra Queirós, Luís Pereira, Ana Dias, Nelson Pacheco Rocha

Abstract

Objectives - This study aims to identify: i) the most relevant chronic diseases in terms of the use of technologies for ageing in place to support home monitoring; and ii) types, outcomes and impacts of technologies for ageing in place being used to support home monitoring. Methods - A systematic review of reviews and meta-analysis was performed based on a search of the literature. Results - A total of 35 reviews and meta-analysis across 4 chronic diseases, diabetes, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and hypertension, were retrieved. These studies compare home monitoring supported by different technologies with usual care. Conclusion - Home monitoring has positive effects in various health related outcomes, but further research is required to allow its incorporation in the clinical practice.
