An investigation into whether an app accompanying the Heartfelt device would be beneficial. Heartfelt Technologies is a company who have developed a device to automatically monitor heart failure in the home, whilst fitting naturally around the patient’s lifestyle. This intends to reduce hospital re-admission rates from heart failure de-compensation.

The aim of this study is to investigate whether an app to accompany the Heartfelt device would be used, and if so, what value it would add. The study will be completed by June 2021. Answering a few questions will help Heartfelt Technologies have a better understanding of the needs of their desired patient group.

All data will be identified only by a code, with personal details kept in a locked file, on a secure computer, or within secured cloud storage with access only by the immediate research team.
