Remote Patient Monitoring
What is Remote Patient Monitoring Service?
Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is a method of collecting medical data from patients in one area and securely transmitting that data to health care experts in another location for evaluation and suggestions. This technology enables our clinicians to track healthcare data for our patients in real-time, lowering readmission rates and keeping them healthy for longer. Best of all, Medicare covers both our RPM monitoring services and the devices themselves!
What Is Included in Our Remote Patient Monitoring Solutions?
Facilitated access to medical care
Going to the doctor for a routine check-up can be challenging for many people, such as the elderly, those with impairments, patients from remote regions, and post-surgical patients. Remote patient monitoring technology helps patients get vital medical services without having to attend a care facility, lowering the frequency of routine check-ups and allowing doctors to focus on patients who require their attention. In addition, with wireless medical devices, chatbots, and wearable biosensors, a remote patient monitoring system may conduct e-visits to check patients outside of clinical settings.
Early symptom detection
Healthcare providers may get real-time patient health data with a remote patient monitoring solution. The remote patient monitoring system keeps track of physiological indicators and reports how the sickness or damage progresses. This information can help you fine-tune the treatment process, avert probable epiphenomena, and avoid crises in chronic care management. You can, for example, monitor a patient’s response to the medicine and adjust the treatment plan as needed. Furthermore, using RPM to detect early symptoms can help minimize emergency room visits and readmission rates. For example, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center cut hospital readmissions by 76 percent by implementing remote patient monitoring equipment.
Increased patient engagement and satisfaction
Patients who have remote monitoring feel more confident in their ability to recover even when not in a clinical environment because they know their health is being checked 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Patients can also participate actively in the therapy process by receiving alerts on their treatment plan’s progress. In addition, RPM software has been shown in recent research to improve patient satisfaction. For example, after using remote patient monitoring technologies, 25% of surveyed healthcare facilities reported increased patient satisfaction.
HomeMD Engages and Empowers Patients
HomeMD uses remote monitoring technology to engage patients by helping build a support network to keep them healthy. It serves as an engagement and empowerment tool for community-based patient care as well. RPM provides a communication platform for patients and cares teams to communicate as part of a holistic package that includes HomeMD. It offers the capacity to take preventative action, reducing ED visits, hospitalizations, and the average duration of stay in the hospital, thereby lowering healthcare costs. By providing the most comprehensive collection of tools and data links to provide successful virtual care across numerous settings, the RPM solution enables care professionals to design a tailored monitoring strategy for specific patients.
