We review the development of an Internet-enabled home clinical workstation for the management of chronic disease, and the implementation of a clinical trial to test the functionality, usability and effectiveness of the system in both a city and a remote country setting. The Home Telecare System integrates with established primary care services to provide a new paradigm of active disease management through the daily collection of clinical data and assessment of functional health status, and the provision of feedback for patient self-management and education. A novel Medications Management module is also implemented to permit on line variation of prescribed medications.
