CISAT's Network Convergence Laboratory Awarded Research Grant from Loma Linda University for mHealth Management System to assist High-risk Heart Failure (HF) Patients
CISAT's Network Convergence Laboratory has been awarded a research grant from Loma Linda University for designing novel technologies to assist congestive heart-failure patients. After hospital treatment, CHF patients are required to conduct self-management task such as monitoring weight changes, ensuring low sodium diets, and measuring their BP regularly. Failure and non-compliance to do so can result in hospital readmission or death. Loma Linda has teamed up with Dr. Samir Chatterjee’s lab to develop remote monitoring technology using expert-system and persuasive technology that will assist CHF patients as they transition into the home. All data is collected via an internet connection and NCL will deliver tailored reminders and motivational messages to guide the patients. All vital sign data will also be made available via a dashboard to the nurses at the SACHS clinic. A Randomized Clinical Trial is expected to start in February 2014. Doctoral student Nagla Alnoyasan, Edward Lee and Ala Alluhaidan will be working on different components of this system.
