Leveraging RPM to Enable At-Home Care for High-Risk Cancer Patients
Leveraging Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) for at-home care in high-risk cancer patients enhances outcomes, but patient engagement and selecting suitable technology are crucial. Post-2020, digital health advances expanded at-home healthcare boundaries, addressing COVID-19-related care shifts. A study by CU Medicine and Reimagine Care showed RPM feasibility and acceptability in managing bone marrow transplant and CAR T-cell therapy patients. Biometric sensors and chatbots facilitated continuous monitoring and symptom reporting. RPM improved care quality, patient understanding, and symptom detection. Implementation lessons highlight RPM integration into comprehensive care models and patient engagement importance. Despite potential, broader RPM adoption necessitates payer support to realize full benefits, aiming for comprehensive at-home care integration and reduced hospital visits.
