Disease Management Programs (DMPs), which use no advanced ICT, are as effective as telemedicine but more efficient because less costly. We proposed a platform to enhance effectiveness and efficiency of home monitoring using data mining for early detection of any worsening in patient’s condition. These worsening could require more complex and expensive care if not recognized. In this paper, we briefly describe the Remote Health Monitoring (RHM) platform we designed and realized, which supports Heart Failure (HF) severity assessment offering functions of data mining based on Classification and Regression Tree (CART) method. The system developed achieved accuracy and a precision respectively of 96.39% and 100.00% in detecting HF and of 79.31% and 82.35% in distinguish severe versus mild HF. These preliminary results were achieved on public databases of signals to improve their reproducibility. Clinical trials involving local patients are still running and will require longer experimentation.
