Within our current work we are developing a home based Personalised Self-Management System (PSMS) for persons suffering from Chronic Heart Failure (CHF). Users of the PSMS have the ability to record and monitor their health information such as blood pressure, heart rate and weight in addition to gross levels of activity on a daily basis. Through the use of a touchscreen computer and a smartphone in addition to a suite of telehealth devices is possible for the PSMS to record health information whist providing summative feedback on gross activity. In this paper we present the technical details of the PSMS along with the initial feedback following evaluation conducted within a focus group setting.
