The purpose of this study is to determine the effectiveness of home telemonitoring compared to usual care in reducing the combined outcomes of hospitalization and emergency room visits in a high risk population of patients over 60 years of age with multiple chronic illnesses.
Obesity is common in adults with complex medical problems with ensuing complications afterwards. Obese patients suffer higher mortality and impaired functional status often as a result of their obesity. One primary goal to reduce both obesity and improve functional status is exercise. The investigators hypothesize that a simple exercise intervention with limited behavioral goal-setting will reduce weight and increase functional status compared to usual care. As a secondary measure, the investigators hypothesize that using this intervention will reduce hospital admissions and ER visits.
