Extends Physician Reach
Remote patient monitoring allows physicians and clinicians to keep tabs on their patients from afar, which extends their reach and, in a sense, makes them more available to their patients. Clinicians can analyze transmitted patient data and make adjustments to the treatment plan as needed without having to schedule an in-person visit, which can delay care and present hurdles for some patients.
Improves Facility's Patient Outcomes
A common goal for health care facilities is to improve patient outcomes by reducing the occurrence of rehospitalization, and RPM can help achieve that. Facilities can leverage remote patient monitoring to identify clinical deterioration earlier through continuous monitoring. By establishing baselines for the patient, more proactive interventions are possible when significant deviations take place.
Unplanned hospital readmissions can place a major financial strain on health care facilities. Hospitals in the United States spend over $52.4 billion each year caring for patients readmitted within 30 days for a previously treated concern. Fortunately, RPM can help centers avoid readmissions and save money. RPM enables medical providers to identify health concerns early and respond with adjusted treatment measures.
