    How Remote Patient Monitoring Is Changing Coordinated Care

    For both patients and healthcare providers, Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) has been a welcome addition  for coordinated care. RPM provides benefits for patients with greater monitoring, better diagnosis, lower transportation costs, and less time consumed. Benefits for healthcare clinicians include more information from patients, lower overhead,, more overall flexibility, and lower overhead costs. 

    What Is RPM?

    RPM, or Remote Patient Monitoring, comes from medical devices that remotely provides  clinicians with valuable patient data. This is ideal for patients who may have difficulty  having access traditional clinical settings like hospitals, and doctor’s offices.. This technology  is  commonly categorized as telemedicine. 

    The three main types of telemedicine are a)store-and-forward, b)remote monitoring, and c)real-time interactive services. It is the store-and-forward technique that clinicians use to collect and store patient data and data from remote monitoring. t Real-time interactive services, such as video chat or phone calls,  allow patients to speak to their clinicians remotely.

    How RPM Benefits Patients

    With RPM, valuable vital stats are more readily available for both the medical team and the patient. RPM works in remote areas where access to medical offices may be very limited. RPM alleviates the stress and expense of arranging transportation for visits to a medical facility. All of these have been barriers keeping patients from receiving the medical care they need and deserve. Finally, RPM allows patients to take a much more active and engaged role in their clinical care, all through modern, easy-to-use technologies!

    RPM Changes for Clinicians 

    RPM technologies lower the risk of clinician burnout by helping them reach more clients conveniently, while also reducing costs and increasing efficiency. Though some clinicians may be concerned about not being able to meet with patients in person, RPM still allows them to develop crucial doctor-patient relationships. RPM provides the time and attention that patients need, while giving clinicians more freedom to attend to their other patients. Many patients have stated that they feel more connected to their healthcare provider through biweekly phone calls than they did through stressful office visits.
