Remote patient monitoring ( RPM ) is a digital healthcare technology that offers the potential to improve patient outcomes and cut costs by reducing hospital readmission rates, lengths of stay, and other expenses. It also helps devices track patients’ activities and health status, making it easier for caregivers to monitor their patients remotely.
What does remote patient monitoring do?
Remote patient monitoring is a health technology that ensures that patients are monitored and treated according to their treatment plans. It is an effective way to reduce hospital readmission rates, as well as other expenses related to healthcare. It offers an alternative to in-person monitoring by allowing providers to track and view patients’ activities, such as breathing patterns, heart rhythms, and sleep quality, with no contact. These devices can be worn on the wrist or inserted under the skin to track heart and lung activity. Patients can also wear sensors that track their activity levels and sleep quality. The smart systems can also be used to track patients’ blood pressure, oxygen levels, and other vital signs.
By deploying this technology, improved healthcare outcomes and an increase in the likelihood of recovery are observed. The technology can be used to monitor patients who are at a higher risk of complications and need additional monitoring, such as those who are elderly, pregnant, or have chronic health conditions. A reduction in the number of hospital readmissions by improving clinical outcomes is another boon. This also improves efficiency by allowing providers to view patients’ daily activity, sleep, and other activities without having to visit each patient in person. It can help reduce the risk of infection in patients and hospital staff, as well as the risk of cross-contamination.
How does the system work?
Remote patient monitoring systems are an effective digital healthcare technology that allows caregivers to remotely monitor patients’ activities. They can be used to track a range of data, including breathing patterns, heart rhythms, sleep quality, daily activity levels, blood pressure, and oxygen levels. There are two main types of remote patient monitoring systems: skin-based and implantable. Skin-based monitoring systems are used for continuous patient monitoring. They consist of sensors that measure biological data, such as heart rhythms, blood pressure, and respiration. Implantable monitoring systems are used for event-driven remote patient monitoring. They consist of a device that is implanted under the skin to monitor physiological data.
Remote patient monitoring is a digital healthcare technology that offers improved outcomes and reduced costs. It is an effective way to engage patients in their care and improve communications by giving patients and providers real-time updates. It also helps providers monitor patients remotely, making it easier to track their activities and daily progress
