The Chirp Issue #3
Utilization of remote patient monitoring (RPM) has rapidly increased thanks to new technologies and a growing preference for telehealth services. RPM empowers patients to collect their own data (think: glucose levels, heart rate, vocal scores) and securely transmit that information to their health care provider.
As you can imagine, the benefits of RPM are tremendous. It provides clinicians a more comprehensive view of patient health, allowing them to see changes over time. This means fewer unnecessary trips to the clinic or hospital and health care providers can be alerted by RPM systems to intervene through early warning signs.
Today’s newsletter is all about remote patient monitoring and its potential to take proactive steps in health care.
Remote patient monitoring at work
Strengthening healthcare delivery with remote patient monitoring
Studies have demonstrated the value of RPM in improving patient outcomes, particularly for those with chronic health conditions. For example, patients with hypertension who monitored their blood pressure at home and shared readings with their health care provider achieved significantly better blood pressure control. Read this paper to learn about COVID-19 patients and whether their outcomes improved based on participation in RPM.
What are the benefits of remote patient monitoring?
A large reason for RPM’s growing popularity is our increasing capability to translate the data we collect into meaningful clinical insights. This has benefited patients immensely, and their top commendations of RPM include better access to their healthcare team, fewer visits to the clinician’s office, and more detailed information on their health. Health care providers also saw benefits in improved compliance rates and patients taking ownership of their health.
The Future of Remote Patient Monitoring
With a shortage of health care professionals and costs on the rise, new solutions in healthcare are essential. This podcast shares how RPM is fundamentally changing healthcare by providing early signals of health decline. RPM systems can turn sick care into proactive health care by identifying illness as soon as possible and focusing on individuals’ wellbeing. Once healthcare systems start understanding and trusting data flows, RPM systems are going to dramatically improve patient outcomes.
