Common physiological data that can be collected with RPM programs include vital signs, weight, blood pressure, and heart rate. Once collected, patient data is sent to a physician’s office hardware and software applications.
RPM has been shown to improve patient outcomes by providing real-time access to data that can help reduce hospital readmissions and emergency department visits. Studies have also shown that RPM can decrease the length of hospital stays and the overall cost of care. Patients who participate in RPM programs typically have better outcomes than those who do not participate.
