Abstract

The increasing prevalence of chronic diseases, such as heart failure, presents a substantial challenge to healthcare systems. Telemonitoring is believed to be a useful instrument in the delivery of heart failure care. However, a widespread use of telemonitoring is currently failing for various reasons. This article provides an overview of the barriers for the implementation of telemonitoring in heart failure patients from the perspectives of its users: patients, healthcare professionals and healthcare organisations. In doing so, identified barriers are grouped according to the perceived attributes of innovation by Rogers. Recommendations are provided as to how research can improve the implementation of telemonitoring in heart failure.
