© 2017 IEEE. Remote Program Monitoring (RPM) is considered to have potential to improve the quality of life on patients diagnosed with cardiac conditions such as heart failure (HF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Remote collection and analysis of patients data could aid in effective decision making on necessary care needed by patients monitored. This could lead to reduction on healthcare costs as well as improved outcomes for the patients. As a component of our predictive analytics research, this paper presents results of remote patient monitoring study of patients from the Cardiac Clinic of Southlake Regional Health Centre who were referred to WeCare for home based monitoring. Results indicate statistically significant evidence on impact of gender, medical history and vital status as risk factors for subsequent hospitalization and multiple emergency room visits.
