Unfortunately, these were also the ones who needed constant care, but because the hospitals were overcrowded with Covid cases, the minimum treatment that was required for them was being delayed. Leaving them untreated means greater trouble for hospitals since, in addition to Covid, these patients will begin to pile up, leading to increased exposure to Covid. … Read More

RPMs are not just convenient for physicians but also the consumers, as they reduce the time and energy spent in transit.

More time for urgent cases

When it comes to elderly patients or any patients suffering from a chronic condition, they require constant monitoring, or at the very least, periodic check-ups. This will result in long lines at your clinics for general check-ups, and you may miss out on individuals who require urgent care. If you practice in a remote place, you can devote more time to emergency cases by using Remote Patient Monitoring Devices for your normal monthly check-up patients.

Track patient recovery

Post surgery monitoring of patients can be long, so using RPM devices can shorten their stay in hospital while you can also monitor them every now and then from the comfort of their home.

Reduce exposure

Chronic patients are prone to infections and there is a chance for them to contract infections every time they visit your clinic. This will lead to more hospital visits and unnecessary hospitalizations. Hospital acquired infections can be reduced by opting for RPM devices.

Apt for Lone patients

Wearable gadgets that continuously monitor essential functions such as heart rate, temperature, and so on can be lifesaving for patients who do not have caretakers. In the event of an emergency, apps such as HumHealth can notify the care team.
