What is Remote Patient Monitoring?

As we age we strive to keep our independence. Remote Patient Monitoring is a great way to help monitor chronic health conditions and prevent medical emergencies – helping you stay safe and healthy in the comfort of your home.

Remote Patient Monitoring is simple and easy to use. Depending on your own personal needs you can use at-home devices to track your oxygen levels, blood pressure, glucose, temperature, and weight. The consistent monitoring of these biometrics helps to create a baseline and monitor any changes that might indicate a medical emergency.

Your vitals get sent to a medical team in real time. If your readings are outside of the normal range for you, a nurse will call you to triage your condition and coordinate any next steps like scheduling a visit with your doctor or reviewing your medication.

Remote Patient Monitoring is a great way to help manage chronic health conditions like:

  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Congestive Heart Failure
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Regular tracking of biometrics, symptoms, and medication adherence help to better manage chronic health conditions and prevent medical emergencies. What’s most important about all of this is that consistent monitoring increases your ability to stay home and empowers you to better self-manage your health conditions.

Remote Patient Monitoring is a proven, low-cost way to improve healthy living at home. That’s why many Medicare patients are eligible to receive this service at no cost, with no copay.

Remote Patient Monitoring can help you live a happier and healthier life at home.
