Remote Patient Monitoring
As a patient with a chronic condition, you may have already noticed that your medical team requires you to leave your home and travel long distances in order to attend checkups. Often such appointments consist of vital, yet routine checks including weight, blood pressure, and other physiologic functions of the body. Unfortunately, this can be incredibly difficult for patients who are already struggling with health problems. It can also be expensive and time-consuming.
The good news is that the telehealth service, known as Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) allows you the patient to receive the care you need from the comfort of your own home, saving time, money, and precious energy that can be dedicated to your recovery.
What is Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM)?
Remote Patient Monitoring is the use of technology to collect medical data from patients remotely and then transmit that data to care providers for assessment and follow-up. Generally, this type of monitoring is used for patients with chronic conditions who need ongoing care but do not need to be hospitalized.
RPM can help improve patient outcomes by reducing readmissions, emergency department visits, and hospitalizations. Additionally, RPM can improve patient satisfaction by providing more convenient and timely care.
