Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) has been valued by some as a way to improve the quality and efficiency of care while improving provider and patient satisfaction. While there is general belief that these solutions enable healthcare organizations to better manage patients, does the evidence really support these conclusions? With the potential explosion of wearable devices and monitoring in real time a variety of conditions and purposes, is RPM the panacea some think it is? A national survey and case study of its use at CHRISTUS Health will shed light on these questions.
Discuss how RPM solutions have been demonstrated to be clinically and financially effective supporting chronically ill patients and other situations such as post operation and post discharge global payments
Identify how new at-risk payment and care delivery models influence RPM investments
Analyze hospital-based population health initiatives ready to integrate RPM data within existing clinical care processes and systems
Describe which market factors are influencing investment in RPM and how they impact decisions to deploy or not
Describe which types of tools are deployed to engage chronically ill patients that impact their behavior and life style choices
