Infants with single ventricle/univentricular heart disease have a high incidence of mortality during the first 6 months at home, this period has associated improved outcomes with the utilization of multi-disciplinary parental home monitoring and remote patient monitoring. Mobile health application provide a way to improve the gaps at home.
