4 © Roke Manor Research Limited 2003 History  In conjunction with leading UK teaching hospital (see me afterwards for details!) and EFMI-Information Planning & Modelling in Healthcare working group.  Extension of a project funded by UK Treasury Capital Modernisation fund.  Our contribution unfunded.  Focus on telemonitoring of haemo-oncology patients.

5 © Roke Manor Research Limited 2003 The problem  Treatment typically involves several cycles of chemo/radio therapy with intervening periods to allow the patient’s immune system to recover.  During these periods, the patient is strongly at risk from viral, fungal or bacterial infection. Therefore…  It would be better for the patient to spend this period in the comfort of their own home. But…  The need to continually monitor patients and to take rapid action in the case of septicaemic shock is vital.  So, how can current ‘tele’ technology help?

6 © Roke Manor Research Limited 2003 Requirements  Needs to monitor temperature and pulse rate.  Reliable, with backup mechanisms.  Protects privacy of patient.  Preferably ambulatory.  Preferably (very) cheap.  Preferably autonomous, with minimal (no) extra load on clinicians.
