New Haven, Conn. — Keeping in close contact with heart failure patients once they leave the hospital has been an ongoing challenge for physicians. A patient’s condition can worsen with no notice and early intervention could potentially make a big difference.

Researchers at Yale School of Medicine thought they found the solution with a telephone call-in program designed to improve doctor-patient communication. But results from their study published in the November 16 New England Journal of Medicine shows that this program failed to improve patient outcomes. The paper will be presented simultaneously at the American Heart Association scientific sessions in Chicago, Illinois.

“Despite promising pilot studies, we could not find benefits of a telemonitoring system that was designed to enable patients to send critical information about their condition to their doctor on a daily basis,” said first author Sarwat Chaudhry, M.D., assistant professor of medicine at Yale School of Medicine.”
