23 Jul As Healthcare Changes Remote Patient Monitoring Keeps Cardiology Practices Consistent
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is on the rise as more researchers and technicians embrace technology and innovations that improve quality of care. Remote monitoring incorporates a broad range of tactics such as a stress and/or blood test, mobile applications to monitor heart rates, and medications.
The Changing Healthcare Landscape
The rise in heart diseases, high-blood pressure, diabetes and other illnesses are driving the need for a holistic approach to healthcare and research on a global level. According to Business Insider, “implantable devices (Pacemakers, ICD’s) are expected to grow 6.7% in the next four years, reaching a USD of 24.02 billion dollars.”
The predicted exponential growth, means it’s essential that physicians keep up with the fast pace of medical technological innovation. Becoming part of the future is the only way that cardiology practices, both private and large health systems will survive, while not compromising patient care.
The benefits of Remote Patient Monitoring make several facets of healthcare less invasive and in some cases, less frightening for the person on the receiving end. For the doctors, electro-physicians, and nurses, being able to track and treat patients who have an implanted device (such as a pacemaker or ICD) is vital.
The OnePulseTMsoftware from LindaCare allows for cardiology practitioners to view a patient’s health status on one screen without jumping to and from vendor portals. They can also see which patient is most at-risk and then take the appropriate action(s). Ensuring patient safety and compliance.
Researchers are seeing that patients who take an active role in their care, who are in constant discussions with their provider, have a greater support, maintain stability and are happier than those who have to travel for treatment.
Why It Matters:
Integrated remote monitoring solutions enhance care delivery and improve patient outcomes for conditions that need constant surveillance. Healthcare organizations, particularly hospitals, can use remote monitoring to reduce healthcare costs, including office overhead. As a result, those facilities can then expand their services.
