What is Remote Patient Monitoring?
Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is a type of telehealth in which healthcare providers monitor patients outside the traditional care setting using digital medical devices, such as weight scales, blood pressure monitors, pulse oximeters, and blood glucose meters. The data collected from these devices are then electronically transferred to providers for care management.
When is Remote Patient Monitoring used?
Historically, RPM has been used to measure symptoms of chronic conditions, such as cardiac diseases, diabetes, hypertension, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), congestive heart failure (CHF), and asthma.
What are the benefits of Remote Patient Monitoring?
RPM is commonly reported by provider associations and patient associations as a significant factor that improved or maintained the quality of care, resulting in fewer emergency department visits, hospital readmission avoidance, and reduced hospital length of stay.
