How to Implement Surgical Remote Monitoring: Assembling the Team and Determining Roles & Responsibilities
July 8, 2021
While the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the wide-scale adoption of remote monitoring solutions, this technology is expected to continue to play a significant role beyond the pandemic. To address these rising consumer expectations, healthcare organizations are now incorporating remote monitoring solutions into their long-term strategy for improved patient outcomes (e.g. reduced hospital length of stay, readmission rates, and ED visits).
