Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is an innovative and convenient way to monitor a patient’s medical and health data using advanced technology. It monitors individuals in one location and securely transmits that information to medical professionals in a different location for assessment and recommendations.
Healthcare organizations want to go one step further and add on-demand video conferencing capability to their remote patient monitoring program. Combining RPM with virtual medical appointments allows medical professionals to securely and conveniently manage their patient’s health conditions in real time. For example, women with pregnancy-associated hypertension are typically told by their physicians to follow up one week after being discharged from the hospital. And then again in four to six weeks; however, compliance with these instructions is far from ideal. Nationally, only 30 to 40 percent of women go for their follow-up, which could impact their health not just while they have infants, but for life. University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) developed a successful solution using remote blood pressure cuffs to remotely monitor and measure patient vitals, and then having that reading checked and recorded with a qualified medical professional at a centralized monitoring system. If needed, patients can use a virtual front door to have a face-to-face virtual appointment with their healthcare provider.
