Warfarin home-monitoring pilot study incorporating electronic communication with GPs

This small pilot study assessed the feasibility of an alternative warfarin monitoring strategy involving the use of a point-of-care INR monitor and communication between the patient and GP via the internet. This involved the development of Homecare – an operational prototype of a broadband home-based healthcare platform. Homecare provided patients with online access to care routines and medication requirements, and enabled doctors to monitor their condition online.

This project was funded by Telstra Broadband Development Fund.
