SCAUT: Next generation patient-clinician collaboration using mHealth

SCAUT aims to create next generation mHealth that improves collaboration between cardiac device patients and clinicians in remote monitoring.

What is SCAUT?

SCAUT is short for Self-, Collaborative- and Auto-detection of signs and symptoms of deterioration. We focus on chronic heart patients with implanted cardiac devices. We apply advanced data analytics and participatory design with active involvement of health professionals, patients and relatives. This means that we carry out iterative prototyping and testing in real life situations in patients’ homes and in hospitals. The aim of the project is to create next generation mHealth that improves collaboration between patients and clinicians in remote monitoring.

Who is involved?

SCAUT is a collaboration between four partners – two public institutions and two companies: The Department of Computer Science at the University of Copenhagen, The Heart Centre at the University Hospital of Copenhagen (Rigshospitalet), Rehfeld and Medtronic. The project is co-funded by the Innovation Fund Denmark and runs from 2014-2018
