Remote Patient Monitoring

In healthcare today, with care shifting from hospitals and clinics to the home, remote patient monitoring (RPM) provides a key foundational element to the success of that transition. Health care organizations need to fully implement RPM as a vital strategy to promote health and improve patient management and care. Through RPM, providers capture disease-related and physiological data on the patient and digitally transmit that data via telephone, internet, or video conferencing from the patient's home to a healthcare center, providing clinical feedback. Nowadays, RPM devices such as intelligence sensors, wearables, or handheld devices, internet-connected cellphones, and implanted monitoring devices are widely available. This podcast episode explores the latest RPM innovations with a leading expert in health technology.
