The scientific consortium, led by the Military Institute of Medicine, completed the AMULET project, with the goal of determining the procedures for post hospital outpatient care. The findings from the clinical studies on the AMULET model demonstrated that it increases patients’ chances of receiving specialist care, and makes possible detection of early symptoms of disease exacerbation. Telecare provided in nursing care offices, including detailed hemodynamic assessment and remote support from cardiologists, was associated with a reduction of 38% in hospitalisations due to exacerbation of heart failure in one year of observation. Home telemonitoring with the use of a portable impedance cardiograph was also well accepted by patients, and it demonstrated clinical usefulness. The comprehensive model of telecare developed in the AMULET project offer a method of increasing the access of patients with heart failure to high-quality medical care.
