Abstract : Telemedicine is a mean of facilitating the distribution of human resources and professional competences. It can speed up diagnosis and therapeutic care delivery and allow peripheral healthcare providers to receive continuous assistance from specialized centers. The need of specialized human resources becomes critical with the aging of the population. The treatment of renal failure is an example where telemedicine can help to increase care quality. Over the last decades Bayesian networks has become a popular representation for encoding uncertain expert knowledge. Dynamic Bayesian networks are an extension of Bayesian networks for modeling dynamic processes.We developed a dynamic Bayesian network adapted to the monitoring of the dry weight of patients suffering from chronic renal failure treated by hemodialysis. An experimentation conducted at dialysis units indicated that the system is reliable and gets the approbation of its users.
