Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM)

Why Should You Use Remote Patient Monitoring?

Remote patient monitoring utilizes the combination of care managers who monitor and collect medical and health data from patients along with digital technologies for the purpose of improving health outcomes.

Using digital technologies, care managers can collect a wide range of health data from patients enrolled on monitoring programs, including vital signs like heart rate, blood pressure, weight, blood sugar, blood oxygen levels, and even electrocardiograms.

A care manager who is providing remote patient monitoring can proactively identify emerging issues before they become larger complications and can provide immediate interventions which leads to improved outcome measures, reduced hospitalizations, and reduced emergency room visits.

Our specialized monitoring center is both CARF and AAS certified:

CARF

Accredited service providers enjoy international recognition for their commitment to excellence. Third-party payers, governmental agencies, and the public at-large recognize CARF accreditation as a demonstration of accountability and conformance to internationally accepted standards that promote excellence in services. The value of CARF accreditation is more than a certificate hanging on the wall. CARF accreditation is evidence that your organization strives to improve efficiency, fiscal health, and service delivery -- creating a foundation for consumer satisfaction.

AAS

Accreditation validates service delivery programs that are performing according to nationally recognized standards.  AAS certification increases the visibility and credibility of accredited programs and provides criteria for systematic, ongoing self-evaluation.  People in life-threatening and other crises who obtain service from AAS accredited programs are assured that staff has seriously examined their commitment to provide service according to recognized standards.

When is Remote Patient Monitoring appropriate?

Remote patient monitoring is most valuable for patients with one or more chronic condition, such as coronary artery disease, diabetes, asthma, hypertension, congestive heart failure, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. In addition to monitoring biometric readings for these patients and intervening when necessary, care managers can:

  • Provide education to help patients understand their co-occuring diseases and how best to manage their conditions.
  • Evaluate patients’ medication compliance, including whether a patient has filled a prescription on time or is taking a drug as prescribed.
  • Help identify a connection between the onset of symptoms and a newly prescribed drug.
  • Assist clinicians with monitoring a patient’s treatment plan.
  • Educate patients to better manage their overall health.
  • Work with patients to get the most from their home health visits.
