The main objective of the Do CHANGE project is to provide patients with high blood pressure (HT), ischemic heart disease (CAD) or heart failure (HF) chronic conditions with a set of tools and services to optimally monitor and manage in near real-time their health condition and disease.
This analysis covers the implementation of DO CHANGE in three different locations: Badalona Serveis Assitencials (BSA), the Elisabeth TweeSteden Ziekenhuis (ETZ) and the Buddhist Tzu-Chi Dalin General Hospital (BTCD). Moreover, it includes the two phases of the project. In the first, the intervention used the available components after the first design cycle, while the second incorporated wearables and the new devices developed in the context of the project.
The analysis uses a 5-state Markov model where the initial health states have been defined based on the systolic (SBP) and diastolic (DBP) blood pressure and the classification followed by the American Heart Association which defines the different hypertension states depending on both the SBP and DBP.
