Introduction

Patients / carers

Health and social care trusts are providing a telemonitoring service to people who have been diagnosed with conditions such as diabetes, heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and after stroke/transient ischemic attack (TIA)

Telemonitoring NI will help you to manage your condition and provide your team of healthcare professionals with information to enable them to make appropriate decisions about your care. Many patients using telemonitoring say it has improved their confidence and given them peace of mind. With a health professional monitoring the patient's health on a regular basis, there is less need for hospital admission. Telemonitoring also helps carers who are better informed and supported.
