Keeping patients healthy at home is key to reducing the scourge of chronic disease. Read this overview to learn how remote patient monitoring (RPM) is transforming the way chronic conditions can be managed between office visits. RPM improves patient outcomes, reduces overall healthcare expenditures and increases patient satisfaction.
Post-COVID remote patient monitoring can enable providers to deliver longitudinal care to patients managing one or more chronic diseases, improving outcomes.
According to a recent survey by the American Medical Association, the number of physicians launching a remote patient monitoring program doubled between 2018 and 2020, from roughly 10 percent to 20 percent. While that growth was driven by the need to care for COVID-19 patients at home during the pandemic, this increase is likely to continue as healthcare organizations identify new patient populations and create new RPM programs to address their needs.
No population is more eligible for RPM solutions than patients with chronic care management needs. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly 60 percent of the American population lives with at least one chronic disease (e.g., heart disease, stroke, cancer) and 40 percent are living with two or more.
