Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is a healthcare delivery method that benefits patients, healthcare professionals, and the entire healthcare system by leveraging technological advancements to collect patient data outside of traditional healthcare settings. Remote patient monitoring helps providers improve clinical information on their patient's condition between outpatient visits and give them the tools to inform preventive care. Through services such as telemedicine and remote patient monitoring (RPM), seniors can receive vital signs data and medication monitoring 24/7 to connect with healthcare professionals from the comfort of their homes. The KAREWatch™ MG Medical Alert Smartwatch’s leading technology platform provides Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) and Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM), enabling seniors to stay connected with caregivers or healthcare professionals and urgent care wherever they are.
RPM provides real-time longitudinal patient health data critical to managing chronic disease care to meet the growing demand for virtual home care among older adults. The KAREWatch™ MG’s Remote Health Monitoring feature allows healthcare professionals to monitor their chronically ill patients by tracking their blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen levels, and body temperature connected through the KAREWatch™ app on their mobile phones. KAREWatch™ MG also allows a telehealth service through the 2-way HD video and voice calling features that provide a system to manage, collect and monitor patients' daily health measurements at home and interact with them.
Remote monitoring of patients can also help reduce hospital stays and readmissions in intensive care and general hospital beds, thereby improving the quality of patient care while controlling costs. RPM also reduces the burden on our healthcare system by alerting providers when patients are out of compliance, allowing providers to intervene to avoid costly intermittent care without outpatient visits. Medical professionals monitor these patients remotely and take action based on information received from a treatment plan. Patient monitoring programs help people stay healthy and reduce costs in several ways.
With RPM platforms like KAREWatch™ MG, healthcare professionals can reduce incidental care and improve patient care by continuously monitoring at-risk older adults. In 2010, 86% of U.S. health care spending was for chronic diseases. Heart failure (HF) is a chronic disease associated with increased mortality, reduced quality of life due to heart failure, and higher healthcare costs. Because heart failure responds well to early treatment and intervention, worsening heart failure symptoms often lead to worsening heart failure symptoms on admission. Hospitals and other healthcare facilities can benefit from remote patient monitoring to monitor discharged patients and Continuing Retirement Communities (CCRCs). Patients may be returning home due to COVID-19 concerns and other contagious illnesses.
