Abstract

The use of information technologies (IT) in the health sector has allowed to optimize monitoring processes for diseases such as Diabetes or Parkinson’s. For this reason, the incorporation of IT into the monitoring of neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, will enable remote monitoring solutions on the patient’s health. This study will develop a mobile and web application that will monitor, through an IOT device, changes in the patient’s vital signs (oxygenation and blood pressure), impairment of cognitive functions (memory, calculation and concentration) and the patient’s sleep status with Alzheimer’s. In addition, with this solution the patient’s doctor will be able to record recommendations on the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. The study was validated with 3 physicians and 3 caregivers, who participated in the validation process by comparing the time before and after using the technology solution. As a result, the optimization of the monitoring process has been validated, allowing real-time control of the progress of the disease and having the appropriate considerations of the doctor in case of any incident that may happen with the patient
