What is RPM?

RPM is a technology-enabled healthcare service that allows healthcare providers to monitor their patients' health conditions remotely. The technology is used to track patient data such as vital signs, blood pressure, blood oxygen saturation, glucose levels, and heart rate. During RPM, patient data is captured in real-time by peripheral monitoring devices such as weight scales, BP monitors, and glucometers, and then transmitted to a central hub where it can be assessed by healthcare professionals or for self-management. This data is collected through a variety of devices such as wearables, sensors, and mobile apps. The data is then transmitted to healthcare professionals who can monitor the data and make informed decisions about the patient's care.

RPM is a valuable tool that allows healthcare professionals to monitor patients remotely, allowing health professionals to intervene early if a patient’s condition worsens. It has many benefits, including improving patient outcomes, reducing hospital readmissions, and increasing patient satisfaction.

The data collected by RPM devices can be stored in various ways, depending on the system used by the healthcare organization. Some RPM systems may store data in the cloud, allowing healthcare professionals to access the data from anywhere with an internet connection. Other systems may use on-premises servers to store the data. At Pod Health, RPM data is accessed using password-protected secure links. Data privacy is paramount at Pod Health, so we take every precaution to protect our patients’ health information and comply with all aspects of the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

Who can benefit from RPM?

RPM services have the potential to benefit a wide range of people, particularly those managing chronic conditions, or those who require ongoing care management. RPM can help patients with conditions such as:
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)
  • Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Asthma
RPM services help protect these patients from disease progression by allowing healthcare professionals to monitor their condition remotely. Patients who have recently been discharged from the hospital and require ongoing monitoring to ensure that they are recovering properly can especially benefit from RPM, and may have a lower risk of being rehospitalized compared to people recovering without RPM. In addition, RPM services can benefit people who live in rural areas, where access to healthcare services may be limited. By providing remote monitoring, patients can receive high-quality care without having to travel long distances to see a healthcare professional.
