Remote Patient Monitoring Technology gives patients much greater involvement in managing their health and eliminating nursing and hospitalization costs.
Fremont, CA:Remote patient monitoring uses technology to keep track of a patient's health without going to the clinic. It collects biometric data like heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen level, and sleep quality from a patient's location, analyses and interprets that data, and transmits it to the caretaker in another location easing the burden placed on both providers and patients.
Remote patient monitoring solutions integrated with modern healthcare technology prove to be clinically effective symptom management tools, allowing risk-bearing organizations to remotely monitor patients with chronic conditions to help alleviate costs & readmission, improve care quality, and increase access to care for patients.
Different RPM solutions have different methods and require technology that collects and interprets biometric & physiological data.
Wearable Fitness Tracker: The wristbands are equipped with sensors to track the user's physical activity and heart rate. The fitness and health data from the wearable fitness tracker transfers directly to the patient's health record, helping physicians better monitor patients remotely, expand the reach of patient care to rural areas, and improve the number of data physicians receive.
Smart health watch: Smart health allows users to read notifications, send simple messages, and make phone calls, monitor heart rate count, health tracking, sleep tracking, and activity tracking.
Wearable ECG Monitor: The ECG monitor can measure an electrocardiogram and transmit the readings to the healthcare provider, incorporating the data into the patient's records. Wearable ECG monitor also checks atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat), distance, and elevation, helping in precautionary care.
Wearable Blood Pressure Monitor: Blood Pressure Monitor can measure blood pressure and daily activities like steps taken, distance traveled, and calories burned. It is also capable of advising how an individual's habit affects blood pressure.
Patch- Biosensors: This wearable is a self-adhesive patch that gathers data on heart rate, movement, temperature, and respiratory rate. The patch transmits data to the patient's smartphone and then transfers it to the healthcare provider through an appropriate platform.
The advancement and increasing demands of these wearable and mobile technology devices in consumers have significantly impacted the medical industry, including insurers, providers, and tech companies. Wearable and mobile technology devices are designed to collect a range of health and physiological data, and sleep & activity data, using advanced analytics to monitor patients at their location.
