Abstract [en]

Symptom control is one of the most important components of delivering effective palliative care, and adequate symptom assessment is a prerequisite for good symptom control. Patient receiving treatment in palliative home healthcare is geographically separated from the caregivers making symptom control a challenge, a challenge that could be met by the use of information and communication technology.

This paper describes experiences from a project focused on symptom assessment using digital pen technology in advanced palliative home healthcare. As part of an ongoing quality assurance work within the hospital-based home care clinic at Linköping University Hospital, the project has designed, developed and implemented an IT-support system for pain assessments for patients at home using digital pen technology. The system uses mobile Internet technology together with digital pen technology from Anoto™ AB. From December 2002 to August 2003 the system was in use at the hospital-based home care clinic. Alternative techniques, for example the use of a PC or a touch-tone telephone for symptom assessment, are discussed.

Abstract [en]

The population's wish to receive care in the own home instead of at a hospital fits well with the Health Services' development in the direction of increasing home healthcare even when severe illness is involved. However, when care is moved from the hospital to the home the demands for high quality care still remain. Information and telecommunication technologies used in applications which are tailored to support caregivers and patients in home healthcare, can be part of the facilitation of this development towards an increasing home healthcare service. Remote monitoring of the patient in the home can support assuring this quality of care but such monitoring involves considering several requirement areas.

This thesis describes problem areas in both basic and advanced home healthcare where information technology can be a part of the solution. Further, the thesis describes requirement areas to be considered when monitoring patients in the home, both in regard to subjective and objective variables. The requirement areas, which are described in the thesis, include security, mobility, and responsibility. Network solutions for home healthcare are discussed and two information technology applications in home healthcare are described. The first application concerns diabetes care and the second application concerns the use of digital pen technology for symptom assessments in advanced palliative home healthcare.
