ICT presented at BMJ Open Journal

The ICT for Health project presented its study results at BMJ Open Journal. The article focused on feasibility of telemedicine and distance learning applications for chronic heart failure (CHF) patients after hospital discharge. The prospective parallel group non-randomised open label study in patients with New York Heart Association (NYHA) II–III chronic heart failure will be carried out in six Baltic Sea Region countries. CHF is a major public health problem in many regions characterised by significant mortality and high hospitalisation rates, as well as poor quality of life. Home care supported by telemedicine and tele-education has the potential to be integrated into the standard of home care with improvements in efficiency and effectiveness of care.

The BMJ Open is an online-only, open access general medical journal.

Role of ICT

Further, the report shows the actual status of the application of ICT in health care and exposes national standards and roadmaps in the use of ICT in supporting and impacting the health sector. The partner regions describe their eHealth strategies and give examples of ICT- implementation.

In combination with the report ‘Examples of Good Practice Use of ICT in Healthcare and its potential Transferability’, this report pictures the status quo of ICT in health and points to future deployment in every participating country and region.

With this report, it is the hope to reach important target groups – medical professionals, politicians, and also the citizens; they will influence the deployment of using ICT in health care, especially focusing on the demographic change including the rising burden of chronic diseases.
