Telemedicine / Remote Patient Monitoring

Remote patient monitoring is a type of telemedicine that 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. RPM allows providers to leverage existing 21st century technology to expand into new forms of care for their patients who may have been unsuccessful in severe or constraining in-person treatment plans or have struggled with adherence to treatment plans in the past.

RPM programs use “smart” health measuring tools and devices that can transmit data via the Internet such as smart scales, wireless smart glucometers, etc. These tools can collect a wide range of health data, including but not limited to:

  • Vital signs (pulse rate, temperature, respiration rate, blood pressure)
  • Weight
  • Blood pressure
  • Blood sugar
  • Blood oxygen levels
  • Heart rate
  • Electrocardiograms
  • Encephalogram
  • Ophthalmologic and otoscopic exam
  • Peripheral vascular pressure monitoring

Additionally, this data can then be transmitted to a variety of healthcare professionals in a number of healthcare facilities with monitoring centers for analysis, including:

  • Primary care offices
  • Sub specialist offices
  • Hospitals
  • Intensive care units (ICUs)
  • Skilled nursing facilities (SNFs)
  • Off-site case management programs

SPG is currently using the same technology that is being used by all of the VA hospitals across the country, as well as by the White House and other governmental agencies.
