An overview of the system architecture of a home telecare system (HTS) that was successfully deployed in city and rural Australia Is presented. We describe a case study from a patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease who was monitored in her home for a six-month period. A summary of patient and clinician responses to initial and final evaluation questionnaires is presented. There was generally a high level of acceptance of the HTS with both patients and their general practitioners responding favorably on its ease of use, effectiveness and likely impact on improving management of chronic disease.
