Remote Patient Monitoring Systems: What You Need to Know
When patients leave the clinic or hospital, we hope they’ll follow their treatment plan, take medicines as prescribed, and manage their chronic conditions. And we hope they will contact the office if they aren’t feeling better — or they start to feel worse. The reality is that many patients don’t contact their healthcare provider, or don’t contact soon enough. This can lead to poor outcomes and more hospital and doctor visits.
Enter remote patient monitoring systems, which connect patients to their physician’s office through devices that automatically monitor important clinical indicators such as weight, glucose levels, or blood pressure and alert providers when something’s not right. These systems are fast becoming the way we will care for patients. In this SoundPractice episode, we interview author, consultant and technology expert Ron Sterling, of Sterling Solutions. He will discuss why these systems are now poised to reinvent the way we deliver care.
