The rapid development of modern technology is changing the mode of blood pressure management, and remote blood pressure monitoring is getting closer and closer to us. Many studies have confirmed that self-measurement of blood pressure and remote management can significantly improve the blood pressure control rate and improve the self-management level of health of patients.
A single blood pressure measurement can only tell you what your blood pressure was at that particular moment. Many factors, such as stress or forgetting to take medication, can affect this measurement, making it impossible for clinicians to accurately judge a patient's healthy condition. With remote blood pressure monitoring, patients can regularly measure their blood pressure from their home with comfort. This will provide doctors with more accurate data on blood pressure levels of patients over time, and help doctors adjust treatment plans according to changes in blood pressure, thereby improving the rate of control and compliance of patients' blood pressure.
Remote blood pressure monitoring helps patients become more and more actively involved in managing their own health. The RPM remote blood pressure monitoring device is easy to use, ready to use right out of the box, and shipped directly to the patient. Additionally, the remote blood pressure monitoring device utilizes 4G cellular technology or Bluetooth technology to automatically send data to the RPM platform. Therefore, the patient does not have to worry about recording the information, and the clinician can access it immediately.
Remote blood pressure monitoring makes patients more motivated to take regular blood pressure measurements. Because patients know their doctor is regularly monitoring their health, they are more likely to stick to their treatment plan and adopt healthier behavioral patterns.
Based on current healthcare practices, total direct costs associated with hypertension are projected to triple from 2010 to 2030, from $130.7 billion to $389.9 billion. Additionally, indirect costs due to lost productivity (i.e. wait times, inefficient data collection, failure to detect health threats early, etc.) are expected to double from $25.4 billion to $42.8 billion. By focusing on early identification and treatment, care providers can reduce the high costs associated with emergency room visits, testing, surgery and hospitalization.
Remote blood pressure monitoring makes it easier for doctors to deliver healthcare, allowing more patients to be cared for. Patients don't have to worry about making appointments, waiting for treatment, or having to travel to the hospital. All they have to do is use the blood pressure gauge on a set number of days each month. Likewise, clinicians can monitor patient health data at their convenience. Ultimately, RPM remote blood pressure monitoring devices save time for both patients and physicians, which helps clinicians care for more patients without having to spend more time.
