Remote Patient Monitoring and its Impact on Outcomes

“A recent study found 70% of patients believe remote patient monitoring enables better care management.” This is not surprising given how many people purchase wearable devices, such as Fitbits, Apple Watches, etc., to track steps, calories burned, heart rate, sleep patterns, and other health-related activities.  It is not a huge leap to see these and more advanced technological devices used in, and paid for, by the healthcare industry.  Remote Patient Monitoring or (RMR) is already paid for by Medicare for several disease states, and other managed care companies alike.  Having the ability to monitor the success of an individual and detect potential problems early is essential, and will ultimately lead to lower costs for managed care companies.
