Abstract

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in most European countries and its prevention requires major life-style changes using limited health-care resources. Remote cardiovascular decision support seems to allow cardiovascular patients to lead a productive life and to minimize the costs of treatment. In this paper, the current development stage of remote monitoring in our developing decision support system is described. It uses alert rules that can notify clinicians or other parts of the system if a patient is at risk, which is useful for prevention of malignant events. A mathematical definition of alert rules and their combination into one output, their software implementation and example data are given.
