The healthcare journey can be a confusing, overwhelming, and long process for patients. Many may be undergoing surgery for the first time which can be extremely stressful while chronic care patients are often faced with a lot of uncertainty, as the course of their illness can be unpredictable and the treatments difficult to keep up with.
Meanwhile, providers often feel they are discharging patients into a black hole, and continue to face high rates of readmissions and ED visits, an increase in phone calls, surgical wait times, and backlog, and a strain on resources and staffing that have been further exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Today, leading health systems and hospitals are increasingly looking at Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) solutions as a scalable way to stay connected with patients pre- and post-discharge, decrease surgical wait times, and discharge patients sooner – all while enhancing patient education, engagement, and clinical outcomes, which in turn helps reduce in-patient costs. Remote monitoring solutions have shown to reduce hospital costs by $8,100 per patient and average total cost by 6.7% for specific surgery lines.
In this whitepaper, we will walk you through key benefits and strategies of remote patient monitoring programs, as well as use cases across surgical and chronic care.
Topics covered include:
✓ What remote patient monitoring is – the different types and how they can help enhance patient experience and help care teams make data-driven decisions
✓ 7 benefits of Remote Patient Monitoring
✓ Success stories and evidence from leading healthcare organizations showcasing exceptional operational and clinical outcomes achieved through remote monitoring
✓ Examples of use cases for remote monitoring in surgical and chronic care – including oncology, maternity care, pre- and post-surgery or procedure, chronic disease management, mental health, and frailty.
✓ Common challenges faced by healthcare providers and strategies to help combat them using remote monitoring.
Download the whitepaper to see how RPM solutions can support standardization of education, enhance patient engagement, enable efficient progress tracking and early intervention, help with data and PRO collection, achieve improved clinical outcomes and adherence, and more – helping combat current staffing shortages and reducing overall cost of care.
