In that paper we will describe a system for remotely monitoring of patients at home from the doctors at the hospital. In general, the @Home system can measure, collect, analyze and record health care data at a patient's home and the subsequently send these data to the hospital using the global system for mobile communications (GSM) or PSTN telephone line. The paper is organized as follows: In section 1, a brief introduction of the @home project is exposed. In section2, the overall architecture of the system is shown. Finally, the paper concludes in section 3, stating the clinical trials and the benefits of the project.
