Chronic disease refers to any diseased condition expected to last at least up to a year or until death. Chronic diseases worsen over time and, therefore, can be controlled but not completely cured. Some of the chronic disease examples are diabetes, hypertension, stroke, cancer, heart diseases, arthritis, etc. There are different chronic disease prevention methods such as eating healthy foods, getting regular physical activity, avoiding alcohol, quitting smoking, getting screened, etc.

Chronic conditions, like hypertension, diabetes, and cancer, require ongoing, comprehensive care to ensure that patients respond to treatment as predicted and that their conditions remain under control. Increasingly, health systems are turning to remote patient monitoring to track chronic disease patient outcomes, adjust treatment plans, and provide ongoing patient education.
Johns Hopkins Medicine is one such health system. Its RPM program employs an array of devices, including blood pressure monitors, pulse oximeters, scales, and glucose monitors, as well as telehealth tools, to manage chronic conditions in the patient's own home. These devices monitor vital signs and symptoms remotely and virtually connect patients with care teams if needed.
In this presentation, Rebecca Canino, executive director of Johns Hopkins Medicine's office of telemedicine, will discuss how the organization uses RPM to manage chronic conditions, including how the program has evolved to include newer conditions like pediatric asthma, its uses in research, the barriers to implementation, and other key considerations when establishing a new RPM program.
Preventing illness and early detection is key to the future of healthcare, but can wearable health technologies provide the solution?

Wearable technology from smart devices such as watches, etc. have been around for over a decade, but in the past year, they have been the focus both by big tech and the healthcare sector.
