By increasing and strengthening effective communication between patients and providers, remote patient monitoring undoubtedly has a significant positive impact on the medical service system. By taking advantage of the latest digital technologies and ingeniously combining them with the existing healthcare delivery model, the remote patient monitoring program is improving the efficiency of practice and the treatment effect of patients. 88% of healthcare providers are currently investing or planning to invest in RPM device, which shows the efficacy and advantages of remote patient monitoring programs for all stakeholders. In fact, compared with patients who did not participate in the remote patient monitoring plan, patients who participated in the remote patient monitoring plan were more involved and recovered faster. In addition, it is well known that RPM can reduce the rate of disengagement and burnout of doctors who are often overburdened by the continuous influx of patients.
Remote patient monitoring is a medical care receiving system which is relatively convenient and easy to use, even for elderly patients who do not know much about technology. Patients participating in the remote patient monitoring program will receive some portable and wearable health tracking devices. According to their needs, they can use these devices to record their vital signs, such as heart rate, blood glucose level, blood pressure, etc., and transmit their data electronically to their doctors and nursing staff for medical evaluation. Patients can record their data at any time at their comfortable home or on travel, and provide it to doctors for medical advice.
Nursing providers can easily access patient data at any time and place to evaluate and send recommendations, treatment plans and emergency alerts to ensure continuous care and reduce the frequency of visits and complications. Similarly, care providers can adjust treatment and drug treatment programs and update existing procedures to keep patients on the track of rehabilitation, and pacify their families by responding to emergency sensors and fall or accident alarms. What are some of the most famous and widely used RPM device in the healthcare industry today?
1) Blood pressure monitor: It is a very simple device, which can inflate and squeeze the patient's arm, and monitor the reaction of their arteries and veins after deflation to determine their blood pressure and heart rate. TeleRPM BPM Gen 1 is a specially designed blood pressure monitor approved by FDA, which can provide services for patients who need remote patient monitoring (RPM). It is approved by FDA as a Class II medical device. 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.
2) Smart scale: It is important to keep an eye on the weight of patients with congestive heart disease to control their condition. The smart scale allows patients to provide doctors with the latest weight data at home and avoid unprecedented aggravation. TeleRPM Scale Gen 2 is very important for patients with chronic diseases such as congestive heart failure (CHF), cirrhosis and other obesity related problems. The 4G wireless smart scale TeleRPM Scale Gen 2 provides accurate weight data for remote patients, which is connected to the health monitoring platform.
3) Pulse oximeter: It is no longer new to anyone, which is widely used to detect lung function during the pandemic. These easy-to-use devices can be inserted into fingers or earlobes to detect blood oxygen level and pulse rate. TeleRPM Pulse Oximeter(BLE) 2022 is an important and common device to check oxygen saturation level (SpO2) and pulse rate. It's a small, compact, simple, reliable and durable physiological monitoring device. Include the mainboard, display and dry batteries.
