Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs) are a leading cause of death worldwide. General at-home care has been shown to improve patient outcomes, decrease hospital admissions, and prevent fatal arrhythmias. The purpose of this research is to frame the use of at-home electrocardiograms (ECG) and the ECG readability across two groups: conducted by qualified healthcare professionals at a clinic and conducted by patients or their caregivers at-home. The results compare at-home ECG readability measured by patients and their caregivers with the control group, represented by ECG readability taken by qualified healthcare professionals during routine office visits. This research study also evaluated data for the accuracy level in ECG data using a 12-lead internal and three external leads. With the growth of modern healthcare technology, it is now possible for patients to be more proactive in monitoring their CVD by conducting at-home ECGs with real-time feedback from their cardiologist to identify any abnormalities. At-home medical-grade ECGs can lead to early identification of heart arrhythmia and decreased hospitalization frequencies. Results from this study support the need for effective coaching and training of patients and their caregivers in using at-home ECG.
