Abstract

This study examined the perception of end-users regarding the monitoring process offered by an innovative cardiac self-care system. The main goal was to assess the efficacy of the process implemented by a smart device designed to support people for real-time monitoring of cardio-vascular parameters in everyday life, thereby encouraging patients to be more proactive in heath management. Most participants showed positive response about the potential benefits of the proposed self-care solution and were willing to adopt the system despite some concerns related to trust and privacy.
