Why Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM)?
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is a technology to enable monitoring of patients outside of conventional clinical settings, which may increase access to care and decrease healthcare delivery costs.
Incorporating RPM in chronic disease management can significantly improve an individual's quality of life. It allows patients to maintain independence, prevent complications, and minimize personal costs.
RPM facilitates these goals by delivering care right to the home. In addition, patients and their family members feel comfort knowing that they are being monitored and will be supported if a problem arises.
Key features of RPM, like remote monitoring and trend analysis of physiological parameters, enable early detection of deterioration;
thereby, reducing number of emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and duration of hospital stays.
