VALUE is a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the impact of a home telehealth program on the ability of frail elderly individuals to remain living independently in their own home as their self-care abilities decline. VALUE uses broadband access to provide virtual visits with a home care nurse, a Web portal for ordering assisted living services, physiological monitoring, and access to the Internet. Subjects were able to use the VALUE program technology without difficulty after a brief instruction session with the nurse.
