Healthcare Tech Outlook | Wednesday, March 30, 2022

There are numerous advantages of remote patient monitoring. In a nutshell, RPM is a clear and consistent advantage for patients, caregivers, providers, and payers across the industry.

Fremont, CA: Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is a type of healthcare delivery that helps patients, clinicians, caregivers, and the healthcare system as a whole by utilizing technological advancements to collect patient data outside of typical healthcare settings. There are numerous major benefits of RPM, including enhanced access to virtual care, more patient-provider contact opportunities, and improved patient involvement in self-management, as well as reduced COVID-19 spread and overall total cost of care.

Advantages of remote patient monitoring:

Improves clinical decision-making based on facts

Providers gain from remote patient monitoring because it improves their clinical insight into patients' conditions in between office visits and gives them tools to inform proactive care delivery. RPM allows a practitioner to monitor how a patient's symptoms change over time, allowing them to see trends and adjust their care plan as needed.

Payers and providers will save money on healthcare

Remote patient monitoring has shown to have a significant influence on minimizing possibly avoidable ED visits as well as avoidable hospital admissions and readmissions. It allows for ED diversion and early acute release, resulting in shorter hospital stays and cheaper healthcare costs. RPM allows for the transfer of appropriate levels of acute and chronic care monitoring into the home, lowering inpatient expenses.

Access to care is improved

Remote patient monitoring overcomes access barriers by delivering care to patients when and where they need it. It can be used to reach patients in rural locations and connect them with specialists they would not otherwise be able to see. It's also an excellent strategy to cut down on missed appointments.

Improves the relationship between the clinician and the patient

Clinicians and patients gain from remote patient monitoring because it allows for more communication, which strengthens the patient-provider connection and improves patient satisfaction and loyalty. It gives patients the reassuring feeling that their clinician is keeping an eye on them on a frequent basis.
