With constant monitoring of the person bedridden at home. “ We’ll have an object that will take the strain of the patient, analyze what you will, send signals to the hospital’s specialist teams. “ The remote patient monitoring is already a reality. But it should be ‘ reasonable and prudent ‘ , warns Patrice Large . ‘ We must be sure that the tool meets the needs and do not crash. Under the pretext that new technologies are there, we can not abandon the desert a patient who is at risk. ‘ And so, away from a human expertise.
