How Remote Patient Monitoring is Transforming Healthcare Delivery

Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is a technology to enable the monitoring of patients outside of conventional clinical settings, such as in the home or in a remote area. It uses different digital technologies to collect medical and other forms of health data from individuals in one location and electronically transmit that information securely to health care providers in a different location for assessment and recommendations.

This type of service allows a provider to continue to track healthcare data for a patient once released to home or a care facility, reducing readmission rates.

Monitoring programs can collect a wide range of health data from the point of care, such as vital signs, weight, blood pressure, blood sugar, blood oxygen levels, heart rate, and electrocardiograms.

We list some ways by which Remote patient monitoring may increase access to care and decrease healthcare delivery costs

Timeliness, which can lead to earlier intervention, For more serious, time-critical medical events, the extra minutes offered by continuous monitoring can valuable

Convenience, which may lead to improved efficiency. Due to near-instant communication capabilities offered by remote care, practices can shift to a more automated system of scheduling, bypassing in-person appointments without reducing doctor-patient facetime

Accuracy, which can boost both efficiency and early intervention, is an important byproduct of healthcare IoT(Internet of Things), the digital technology used for Remote Patient Monitoring. Connecting all devices and alerts into the same sophisticated GPS network provides not just the prospect of early intervention for flagged patient conditions, but also the ability for relief teams to respond faster and with more clarity in emergency situations.

Security realized by sophisticated network protection: Patient monitoring allows for improved digital security via access to a highly secure network for accessing patient health information.

Mobility, which can help improve patient satisfaction. Patients are increasingly demanding access to care via their everyday consumer devices like Activity and Health trackers and other mHealth technology. Granting them this option, then exceeding their expectations with engaging, easy-to-use content and interactivity, means helping ensure greater rates of satisfaction.
