Remote Patient Monitoring, or RPM, helps patients stay healthy by doing their routine tests and check-ups outside the four walls of traditional health care settings. Using devices that tap digital technology, patients can collect data about their health — heart rate, weight, blood pressure, heart rate, blood sugar, and more — throughout the day. Then that data is transmitted to health professionals. It’s become a hot ticket item in telemedicine for its potential to lower health care costs, improve chronic disease management, and reduce preventable repeat trips to the emergency room.
In this Technology Solutions Showcase, we’ll be focusing on RPM that’s “unconnected,” meaning the data must be manually reported and documented.
Do you want to monitor your patients’ chronic conditions in a more comprehensive way between visits? Curious about how to use device data to inform your clinical decision-making? All are welcome — especially folks who work in clinics or health centers who are interested in learning more about digital health solutions.
