Remote medical monitoring is a kind of telemedicine, which plays a vital role in disease management (especially chronic diseases). The remote medical monitoring software requires patients to monitor their vital signs and provide feedback to doctors, or provides wearable or domestic technology to automatically perform this operation. Remote medical monitoring helps patients with chronic diseases manage their conditions to achieve better quality of life.
Remote medical monitoring reduces the cost of treatment and produces better results. It can help doctors monitor patients' compliance with the treatment plan developed for them. It can effectively reduce treatment costs and improve patient health. The patient stays in a comfortable home, and his relatives are on call at any time. Meanwhile, the patient can be monitored by doctors without going to the hospital for examination.
Remote medical monitoring lowers hospitalization rate and readmission rate. Doctors can now monitor the vital signs and medical care needs of patients outside the hospital environment through the program. It reduces the costs of doctors and patients. In addition to providing medical care in the environment used by patients, it also helps to avoid unnecessary emergencies and crises common to patients with chronic diseases. Emergencies are usually expensive. In this way, it saves a lot of money for patients and their families.
The use of remote medical monitoring programs can free up beds and resources for new patients, while keeping high-risk patients at home, which reduces the cost and improves the efficiency of healthcare institutions. Through the use of chronic disease care management services monitored by telemedicine, practice can improve their efficiency in managing patients with chronic diseases and increase patients' rehabilitation opportunities. Through remote medical monitoring applications and software solutions, important data of patients continue to flow, thus doctors can deal with emergencies and possible complications, which ultimately saves hospital costs.
Doctors collect a wide range of patients' health information, including blood pressure, heart rate, vital signs, weight and blood sugar levels to develop personalized treatment plans for patients. Before implementing remote medical monitoring plan for patients, doctors will establish patient record, select equipment, set up patient intake plan and formulate policies and procedures.
Providing patients with remote monitoring devices, such as remote medical blood pressure monitoring can collect and monitor health data electronically connected via Bluetooth or cellular network. Then, the captured health data will be transmitted to the doctor electronically. Later, the doctor will invite the patient to participate in the health care program, including a special treatment plan based on the results. There are many remote monitoring devices, not only remote medical blood pressure monitoring, but also remote scales. TeleRPM BPM Gen 1 is a specially designed blood pressure monitoring approved by FDA as a Class II medical device, which can provide services for patients who need remote patient monitoring. The wireless blood pressure cuff measures systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure and pulse rate, and then quickly transmits accurate real-time data to the healthcare platform through encrypted 4G wireless technology.
