The Impact of Remote Monitoring on Healthcare Services
Virtual health or telehealth services leverage advanced solutions such as videos, apps, images, and artificial intelligence to deliver healthcare services where medical experts cannot be physically present
Fremont, CA: The healthcare sector has molded its facets by adopting the latest trends in the market rapidly. The use of innovative technology has been the key to the development of the industry. From traditional surgeries to programmed laser operations, the industry has experienced multiple waves of technology and has always adopted them for better and more accurate treatment and diagnosis. In recent years, remote healthcare has gained significant traction. Virtual health or telehealth services leverage advanced solutions such as videos, apps, images, and artificial intelligence to deliver healthcare services where medical experts cannot be physically present.
As the industry moves towards a patient-centric care delivery system, these facilities become more critical, especially considering the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic. Here are a few ways in which remote monitoring enhances a patient-centric delivery model.
Remote Monitoring Creates Relationships
Patients need to establish a good relationship with care providers. One in four Americans does not have a primary care provider, and this number is on the rise. By allowing people to create and build a trusted, therapeutic alliance with clinicians remotely, we increase connectivity where it might not exist at all otherwise.
Patients Get Care when and where they Need it
With remote monitoring, barriers of space and time are removed from the equations. Medical help will never be far again. Patients can access health care whenever they need it, from wherever they want it. With internet connectivity improving each day, access to digital healthcare will become widely available.
Remote Monitoring Delivers Results
Remote monitoring yields return to both patients and caregivers. It helps synchronize care between providers, improves physician-to-physician communication, improves the management of chronic diseases, and gives providers more access to patient-reported outcomes. It holds the potential to expand access to health services for patients and physicians, increase patient engagement, improve care coordination, and reduce costs.
It has been proven that virtual health and clinical expertise can work in tandem, which means, it is possible to humanize healthcare even when the patient and the caregiver are miles away. As remote monitoring gains traction, it opens a plethora of options for expansion.
