A citizen telemonitoring strategy as envisaged for Central Greece
Renewing Health, a Pilot A, CIP/PSP project, funded from the European Commission, aims at implementing large-scale real-life test beds for the validation and subsequent evaluation of innovative telemedicine services using a patient-centric approach and a common rigorous assessment methodology. The services offered are designed to give patients a central role in the management of their own diseases, fine-tuning the choice and dosage of medications, promoting compliance to treatment, and helping healthcare professionals to detect early signs of worsening in the monitored pathologies. The current paper discusses the telemonitoring strategy as envisaged for Central Greece in the framework of the Renewing Health project. © 2011 ICST Institute for Computer Science, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering.
