New automated health monitoring system

Patients with asthma, diabetes and other serious medical conditions will soon be able to report their health status and symptoms to physicians and nurses by accessing an everyday form of technology: a telephone.

A new automated, interactive voice-recognition system, developed by researchers from the University of Miami’s College of Engineering and Miller School of Medicine, would make automated telephone calls to patients everyday, employing recorded scripts to check up on whether they are experiencing breathing problems, fluctuations in weight or any other health conditions.

The system would read a script of health-related questions and also alert patients to take their medications or perform other prescribed daily routines such as testing their blood pressure or blood glucose levels.
