Doctors have long known the importance of obtaining regular and accurate data in helping patients manage chronic disease. But until recently, they had to rely on patients themselves to record and report vital signs such as glucose levels and blood pressure readings, which has proven to be a frequently unreliable process.
Today, however, there are devices capable of monitoring and automatically transmitting indicators tied to numerous chronic conditions and diseases such as hypertension, diabetes and congestive heart failure. The importance of remote patient monitoring (RPM) technology is evident from a recent report forecasting a 3.3% annual compound growth rate in the market through the end of the decade. The clinical and financial benefits of RPM, along with suggestions for how to start a program and select a vendor for it, were the topics of a session at Medical Economics’ Summer 2023 Practice Academy.
