Remote Patient Monitoring

Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) refers to a wide variety of technologies designed to manage and monitor a range of health conditions. Point-of-care monitoring devices, such as weight scales, glucometers, and blood pressure monitors, whether standalone or fully integrated within a health data reporting system, provide alerts when health conditions decline. These technologies are particularly useful for the elderly, chronically ill, and people who have trouble accessing traditional sites of care. RPM technologies provide essential support for the coordination of care, behavior change (of providers as well as patients), and evidence-based decision support for patients. Findings from Center-supported programs identify the benefits of remote patient monitoring for patients, providers, and family caregivers; strategies for program deployment; lessons learned; and program outcomes, including program return on investment.
