Anticipated barriers to success of remote monitoring technologies and potential solutions

  • Low patient adherence for data transmission.

  • Weekly patient reminders to transmit data.

  • Poor accuracy of data collected.

  • Use repeated measurements to confirm accuracy of collected data.

  • Lack of clear action plan to interpret data received and respond to alerts.

  • Create a standardised strategy on how to respond to alerts using automated systems and prompts to healthcare professionals.

  • Absence of or ineffective management algorithm for the data received.

  • Formalise and validate algorithms for management strategies using data interpretation.
