We propose the development of a comprehensive research framework for the next generation of home telecare technology. The framework will support the unattended recording of patient physiological data and allow patient management and information review by health professionals. It will include knowledge management tools to support clinical decision making. Research will also be conducted into the development of mobile community networks and ambulatory monitoring technologies based around Bluetooth piconets. The long term outcomes of this research will be improved patient health outcomes in the chronically ill and a decreased overall health care expenditure by reducing hospital admissions.
