When patients are diagnosed with COVID-19, they need to be quarantined until the infection is cleared, usually for at least two weeks. Some patients will be at risk of complications and need comprehensive care at home.
The remote patient monitoring program screens the patient's vital signs and symptom assessment every day with medical technology and equipment. A nurse team of remote patient monitoring regularly monitors data and contacts patients to assess their health status and progress towards achieving health goals. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, remote patient monitoring teams can quickly develop care plans for patients with COVID-19.
The remote patient monitoring program has developed two tracks for COVID-19 patients: one for patients with complications at moderate to high risk, and the other for low-risk patients.
Patients participating in the high-risk program will receive a set of remote patient monitoring kits, including a blood pressure cuff, the 4G RPM Blood Pressure Cuff TeleRPM BPM Gen 2, thermometer, pulse oximeter, and scale. They use these devices two to four times a day to measure their vital signs. The results are automatically sent to the cloud platform through a cellular-enabled tablet computer received by the patient with the kit. The remote patient monitoring nurse will also call the patient to determine if they have symptoms such as nausea and tachypnea. Patients with a low risk of complications use the application to record vital signs. These patients receive notifications on their mobile devices every day reminding them to provide information to their care team through the application.
TeleRPM Pulse Oximeter(BLE) 2022 is an important and common device to check oxygen saturation (SpO2) and pulse rate. It's a small, compact, simple, reliable and durable physiological monitoring device. Include the mainboard, display and dry batteries.
Remote patient monitoring can improve both the quantity and quality of nursing. As remote patient monitoring connects clinicians with relevant patient data more directly (almost instantly), it makes their daily work more efficient and reduces the possibility of burnout, bringing obvious benefits to patient care.
Even better, remote patient monitoring improves patient behavior by creating a system through which people can be more involved and responsible for their own health. The technology provided by an effective remote patient monitoring program is far from the normal, clinical, and formidable medical technology that many patients would think of, but actually makes them comfortable and homelike.
