This paper addresses the challenges of reliably, and securely, extending a healthcare provider's network into the homes of its patients in order to provide Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) services. It describes the Carenet Virtual Private Network (CVPN) solution, a multi-homed VPN solution implemented as a virtual device driver under Linux. We describe CVPN's architecture and implementation, motivating its design decisions. The initial experimental evaluation, of our proof-of-concept prototype, shows that CVPN's per packet overhead, forwarding delay, and fail-over time are reasonable for healthcare monitoring applications and time-sensitive synchronous communications.
