The Benefits of Remote Patient Monitoring Are Wide Ranging
RPM healthcare devices capture physiological data, such as glucose levels and blood pressure. Chandra says the most common RPM devices are Bluetooth-enable glucometers, manometers, spirometers, and weight scales. RPM devices send data via an app on a mobile device. For patients who are not tech-savvy, healthcare organizations can provide a tablet with the app already enabled — patients simply turn on the tablet, then use their RPM device.
Many vendor-based apps can integrate with the electronic health record, allowing healthcare organizations to create their own reports based on the data, or use the data for billing purposes.
RPM devices allow physicians to be aware of a patient’s blood pressure or glucose level without the patient having to come into an office or call.
