What is Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM)?
Remote Patient Monitoring is an easy-to-use healthcare technology that electronically sends patient health information to your healthcare provider. It allows your provider to monitor your health outside of the clinical setting using devices that measure changes in blood pressure, weight, blood oxygen, blood glucose, and a variety of other potential health data points. This data is then transferred to your provider, without the need to document the readings yourself.
What are the Benefits of RPM?
- Enables consistent monitoring, support, and interaction from your healthcare provider to help you effectively manage your health condition and achieve positive long-term health outcomes
- Empowers you to maintain a high quality of life
- Makes it easier to check in with your provider between visits when necessary
Who Can Use Remote Patient Monitoring?
Any patient who has signed an RPM consent form can use these services. RPM is covered by many health insurance plans, including Medicare. It is best to contact your insurance provider for exact coverage and out-of-pocket expenses to you prior to beginning an RPM program.
What kinds of devices work with RPM?
- BP Monitors
- Pulse Oximeters
- Blood Glucose
- Weight Scales
Where can I use Remote Patient Monitoring?
