Abstract: For the electronic health record (EHR) to be considered a true clinical decision support system, it must be possible to access and integrate the patients’ clinical information collected throughout their lives, guaranteeing up-to-date, safe and congruent information, immediately accessible at the place of care. Moreover, there is a considerable capacity to develop and manufacture personal health devices (PHD) highly integrated and miniaturized, which facilitate the home monitoring of patients with chronic diseases. Since the information collected by PHD should be integrated in existing EHR, interoperability is an essential requirement of eHealth to allow the integration of care into a diversity of settings and care providers. The purpose of this systematic review was to identify and analyse references related to the topic of home monitoring that reveal an explicit concern with interoperability requirements. Regarding the results and considering the initial 2778 references, only 2% (61 references) explicitly mentioned interoperability issues and, within these 61 references, only eight reported end-to-end solutions that can be integrated and usable in care service provision. Therefore, the issue of interoperability of PHD, both semantic and technological, a priority for the establishment of a remote patient monitoring solution market, is discussed in this review.
