Remote patient monitoring for adults with non-communicable chronic diseases - Protocol for a systematic review - project description
Welfare technology, including remote patient monitoring, is an important element in the development of the healthcare services. The purpose of this systematic review is to investigate effects of remote patient monitoring of adults with non-communicable chronic diseases regarding use of resources in the primary and specialist healthcare services. Remote patient monitoring in this review involves predetermined health-related measurements which the patient digitally transfers to the health services (e.g., with applications, tablet, and telephone).
We will conduct systematic literature searches in selected databases. We will prioritize the inclusion of randomized trials. If we find that the documentation from randomized trials is insufficient and we have available resources, we will consider including controlled non-randomized trials as well. We will extract and analyse data from the selected studies and evaluate each study’s risk of bias. If possible, we will compile results in metaanalyses.
Furthermore, we will rate our confidence in the results by assessing the certainty of the overall evidence by using the GRADE approach (Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation).
Finally, we will present the included studies and overall results in a report
