Remote patient monitoring (RPM) allows nurses and other healthcare professionals to remotely monitor and track vital signs and other health data of patients, regardless of their location. The use of RPM can help resolve the nurse shortage and save nurses time in several ways.
Whether in a hospital, nursing home or long-term care facility, RPM allows nurses to continuously monitor the health of their patients without having to be physically present with them. This can help reduce the workload and stress of nurses, who often have large patient caseloads and can be at risk for burnout. By using RPM, nurses can monitor the vital signs and behavioral data of multiple patients at once, helping them save time on making rounds and improve efficiency.
RPM can improve the quality-of-care patients receive. Continuous monitoring allows nurses to quickly identify any potential problems and take appropriate action in a timely manner. It allows nurses to identify patients in need, prioritize those at risk, use the data to better understand patient status and spend less time assessing patient condition. Nurses can monitor the health of elderly or disabled patients who may not be able to communicate their needs or symptoms effectively. This can help to prevent complications and ensure that patients receive the best possible care. Nurses caring for chronic patients can use real-time data and trend analysis to identify patterns early on that could indicate a potential problem or risk of exacerbation and help them adjust and deliver a more personalized course of treatment.
