Simply, RPM or Remote Patient Monitoring is the process of monitoring a patient’s vital signs remotely from their home in between real-time patient visits. Remote patient monitoring refers to the use of technology to record health data for review by a provider in a different location than the patient. This new modality encourages patients to take control of their health while allowing their doctors to gather vital information between office visits. It not only increases patient compliance but also has a dramatic impact on patient outcomes at reduced costs. It is a great resource for many physicians caring for patients who are suffering from chronic conditions, are less mobile, or are at risk of falling. Patients use connected devices at home, such as blood pressure cuffs, weight scales, or glucose monitoring devices to collect this data. These devices have built in cellular SIM cards that allow for automatic uploads remotely to the DocuVitals’ portal.
Times have changed. 77% of healthcare patients report that they would be willing to wear technology for health tracking purposes. RPM provides a way to leverage medical information into efficient reports and reimbursement. Creating a happy experience for both the patient and the provider.
