Personalize contact methods to support patient preferences and strengthen relationships
Remote patient monitoring devices collect biometric data, including the following examples.
Wearable mobile devices
Wearable technology like smartwatches using cloud-based device configuration tools allows clinicians to customize the watch to be a dedicated RPM device. Sensors in the watch gather biometric data and transmit it to a platform, which streamlines the information for healthcare providers to interpret. A study conducted by Preventicefound the watch could reduce a significant percentage of unnecessary emergency room visits and outpatient visits.
An example of a patch-based sensor is VitalPatch, an FDA-approved wearable biosensor that continuously gathers 8 types of biometric data — from electrocardiogram and heart rate to body posture and activity levels. This is one of many RPM devices that stream data to the patient’s smartphone and then to a platform clinicians can access at any time. At Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Massachusetts, these sensors helped reduce hospitalization costs by 52% and improved patient outcomes.
Bluetooth biometric devices
Customized RPM devices like Vivify Pathways connect customized tablets and Bluetooth-enabled biometric devices like blood pressure cuffs, weight scales, and glucometers. Patients use these devices to collect data and answer daily health questions on their tablets.
RPM providers offer a variety of collection methods that then securely transmit the patient data to a third-party HIPAA-compliant RPM platform. This platform analyzes the data and delivers it to clinicians via user-friendly dashboards with robust analytics. When they monitor patients between office visits, they can detect concerning trends in real-time and intervene before a patient requires hospitalization.
Improved quality of care
With Care Management, patients attend preventative and primary care visits more frequently thanks to provider intervention. The right program will enable a strong relationship between providers and patients, encouraging more frequent touchpoints and communication.
Providers can help their patients achieve improved health outcomes over the long term by closely monitoring their health. Gradual, positive changes to the patient’s habits and health will result in increased longevity and provide a better overall quality of life. While the results may not be immediate, healthcare organizations with Care Management programs consistently see improved clinical outcomes over time.
While cost reductions are not often seen directly (nor right away) with Care Management programs, many indirect costs can be attributed to adding care managers to a care team. To see both clinical and financial success, healthcare organizations must carefully consider which patients would benefit the most from working with a care manager.
For example, management programs that target patients’ transitions from hospital to home see reduced hospital readmissions. These care programs ultimately lead to lowered costs, as readmissions increase operational costs for healthcare facilities.
Care Management programs can also reduce the use of high-cost acute care services, as well as the number of duplicative tests and procedures that often occur when a patient sees many care teams with different specialties.
