Even though COVID-19 is not considered a chronic condition, Remote Patient Monitoring can be used to ensure a patient’s care is managed at home and not in the hospital. The best way to use that is through Medek RPM’s Remote Patient Monitoring for COVID-19 and its connected oximeter because of how COVID-19 affects the lungs. This high-tech oximeter is used like any other oximeter, attached to the finger, but automatically sends the readings to the Medek RPM team of care professionals. When a patient’s oxygen levels reach an unsatisfactory level, our team of medical professionals work with the patient’s physician to determine next steps.

Benefits of Medek Remote COVID-19 Patient Monitoring

One thing learned over the past year in working with COVID-19 patients is the best course of action is treatment at home. Only in emergency situations, should a patient go to the hospital. The best way to ensure a patient is treated at home is using Medek RPMs Remote Patient Monitoring for COVID-19 patients. Using this system, it’s easy for a patient to test their oxygen levels and have those results sent directly to the Medek RPM care professionals team. This eliminates the need for the COVID-19 patient to leave the house, reducing infections of others and bringing greater results to the health of people suffering from COVID-19.
