Remote Patient Monitoring - RPM
Remote Patient Monitoring is a technology to enable monitoring of patients outside of conventional clinical settings, such as in the home or in a remote area, which may increase access to care and decrease healthcare delivery costs.
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) uses digital technologies to collect medical and other forms of health data from individuals in one location and electronically transmit that information securely to health care providers in a different location for assessment and recommendations.
There are many benefits of Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) for clinicians — ease of access to patient data, the ability to deliver higher-quality care to more patients with a lower risk of burnout — and for healthcare providers — lower costs and higher efficiency.
Often used during the recovery period, Remote Patient Monitoring, or RPM, allows patients to measure their vital signs, blood pressure, weight, temperature, and more without visiting a doctor or hospital.
Chronic illness is one of America’s leading drivers of healthcare costs as well as the foremost cause of death and disability. With nearly 60% of Americans living with one or more chronic conditions.
WCRx Clinic uses the Smart Meter RPM to help its patients.
WCRx Health's adoption of telehealth solutions, such as Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) and Chronic Care Management (CCM), helps drive patient engagement and improve clinical outcomes for patients. WCRx leverages these two services together to reduce the negative impact chronic illness has on the patient and the healthcare system.
The Smart Meter RPM systems are fully reimbursable through Medicare and many commercial insurance plans.
Smart Meter eliminates the complex, extra steps—and delay—of sharing health metrics. All patients do is test by pressing a single button on iGlucose, iBloodPressure, iPulseOx or simply stepping on the iScale. Clinicians benefit from access to cellular transmitted, real-time, reliable and secure patient data between visits, which can lead to better patient outcomes.
No internet needed to use the Smart Meter RPM system.
