Elderly people with chronic diseases are becoming more numerous in our country. In Mexico, a chronic disease that is among the top ten causes of mortality overall, according to the Instituto Mexicano del Seguro Social (IMSS), is Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). People who suffer CKD must be on constant review to maintain disease control and monitoring. In this work, we proposed the analysis, design and implementation of a telemonitoring system, to carry out a continuous control and remote monitoring of patients with CKD undergo a Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) treatment. The proposed system consists of a native app for Android, where the patient records his dialysis baths and other relevant data, and a mobile web app in which the medical staff can monitor the patient condition and give recommendations. Some core services our system provides are: data record either about CAPD (Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis) or APD (Automated Peritoneal Dialysis) dialysis sessions, alerts generation by detecting biomedical indices outside ranges established by the doctor, sending emails and text messages with the patient's location and details of why that warning occurred, report generation and data query.
