Abstract

Telemonitoring (TM) systems are not widely used by Dutch Heart Failure (HF) clinics and previous research provides inconclusive evidence for their effectiveness in HF care. To understand the underlying causes, we conducted an interview study with a purposive sample of eight medical professionals regarding their expectations and experiences towards TM systems. A qualitative analysis of the interviews showed that the expectation of HF clinicians that TM reduces their workload is not met. From the interviews, relatively unknown and understudied design implications were defined to serve as opportunities for research through design to improve TM systems for HF care. The design implications were categorized by the themes 'ineffective user interaction', 'one size does not fit all', and 'sharing the load'.
