Telemedicine providers leveraging remote patient monitoring (RPM) in nursing homes and home care benefit in numerous ways.
4 key benefits of using RPM in these settings:
Improved access to care
RPM can improve access to care for those who may have mobility issues or difficulty leaving their facility or home for in-person medical appointments. By using RPM, residents and patients can receive medical care from the comfort of their own rooms and homes, without the need for transportation.
Enhanced care coordination
RPM can facilitate communication and collaboration among clinicians, leading to better coordination of care. For example, medical staff can use RPM to track patients' vital signs and other health indicators, alerting them to any potential issues that may require further attention.
By providing timely interventions and support through RPM, telemedicine providers can help prevent hospitalizations and emergency department visits. This can not only improve patient outcomes, but also reduce the burden on healthcare systems.
RPM can reduce the need for in-person visits to the doctor's office or hospital, leading to cost savings for both healthcare providers and nursing home residents and home care patients.
