Increasing the accessibility of patient information

easy access to patient information

Remote Patient Monitoring has taken over the US healthcare system by a storm. There are several reasons why RPM has been received so positively from providers as well as patients. One of the main reasons for the wide success of Remote Patient Monitoring is that it has simplified access to patient information.

According to a study, there are around 200 million people with chronic illnesses alone in the US. Maintaining data for each of these 200 million people and keeping up with their day-to-day health is a near to impossible task. This is where RPM stepped in and brought significant changes in the healthcare industry. With the RPM platform, maintaining and managing data for many such patients and keeping up with their daily health stats has become a piece of cake.

How Remote Patient Monitoring is simplifying access to patient data
According to the latest study, 11.2% of the population in the US will be using Remote patient monitoring health devices by the year 2024. This increase is based on RPM tools’ improved healthcare from the provider’s perspective and provides a personalized and enriched experience.

To understand how Remote health Monitoring simplifies and increases accessibility to patient information, we’ll have to understand how it works. RPM is a digital platform that collects patient’s data from health devices such as blood pressure cuffs, pulse oximeters, and others. It then compares these data with the threshold value. If there are any significant changes noticed in the readings, then the patient’s providers are notified. The providers can then contact the patient and give them the necessary consultation.

Patients check their vitals through remote patient monitoring devices, and these data are collected and stored. Providers can check patient’s everyday vitals such as blood pressure, sugar level, and oxygen level. When a change in data-driven trends is observed, providers are notified, and they can set up a one-on-one consultation. RPM also logs the time patients spend with providers and bills accordingly.

Every patient has them access digital files complete with details about their daily vitals and health stats that providers can access whenever they need them.

How has easy access to patient data improved healthcare?
When you have patients’ detailed health information and everyday vital stats, you can treat them better. RPM collects even the tiniest data related to a patient because every little detail is significant for health and treatment.

With Remote Health Monitoring, providers get a deeper insight into patients’ health and understand a patient’s overall health and activity.

Not every patient can come for a regular check-up, and likewise, it is a daunting task for providers to do regular check-ups and maintain accurate data. Remote Patient Monitoring covers the gap between providers and patients and improves the health care system.

RPM is bringing positive changes to the healthcare industry. Equpio’s RPM stats are proof that this technology is improving healthcare. It has significantly increased the patient satisfaction rate to 97% and has reduced the patient admission number to a 38%. Because it monitors everyday vitals, RPM has successfully brought down the mortality rate due to chronic illnesses.

Considering the numerous benefits of Remote Patient Monitoring and improvement in the US healthcare system and the ongoing pandemic, it is safe to say that RPM telehealth is the future and will only get bigger and better.
