The Benefits of Remote Patient Monitoring

Technology has not only irrevocably changed medicine but has been instrumental in ushering necessary advances in the field. Most healthcare experts now agree that the use of integrative and collaborative technologies to connect healthcare providers with patients more closely helps in delivering more effective and precise medical care.

Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is one of the primary telehealth services that has revolutionized patient care. It has pushed many of us to reimagine how medical care is delivered to patients.

RPM involves the use of several state-of-the-art health sensors that are attached to the patient’s body and detect and transmit information about vitals to healthcare providers remotely.

Here are some of the top benefits of remote patient monitoring for healthcare practitioners and patients.

Remote Patient Monitoring – Benefits for Healthcare Providers

The current COVID-19 pandemic has pushed Congress, several federal agencies, and states to introduce changes in healthcare regulation that includes several important provisions for telehealth services.

As mainstream medical care practices continue to adopt telehealth services, private practices are making serious headway when it comes to utilizing the benefits of services such as RPM. Here are some of the main benefits:

  • Easier access to patient data
  • Increased reach to patients with respect to delivering high-quality medical care
  • Lower costs and greater efficiency
  • Lower risk of burnout

Access to RPM services means there are fewer patients, clinical study participants, and elderly patients crowding the waiting areas in doctors’ clinical practices for updates on their condition.

Doctors can receive these updates at the touch of a button.  Round-the-clock monitoring can effectively replace regular checkups.

Remote Patient Monitoring – Benefits for Patients

More efficient technological innovations have made patients’ lives easier as well. Here are some of the main benefits of RPM for patients:

  • Easier access to quality healthcare
  • Daily updates and peace of mind
  • Improved feedback and support
  • Greater patient education

As accessing healthcare from preferred physicians and doctors becomes increasingly difficult in the country, RPM helps streamline doctor workflows to provide diagnoses and treatment to more patients at any given time. As more healthcare facilities adopt RPM services, more patients will be able to access healthcare from their homes.
