Healthcare, Telemedicine, Remote Patient Monitoring
Updated: Aug 31, 2022
I've been researching, evaluating, and writing about physiological monitors and patient monitoring for years. Remote patient monitoring (RPM) offers many benefits to patients and providers alike. Patients enjoy greater safety, lower costs, and higher quality of care both in-hospital and at home. Providers can benefit by delivering higher quality of care and reducing risks. They may also benefit from lower capital spending, increased productivity, and improved safety. These technologies can also alleviate the impacts of nurse shortages and the stress of unpredictable increases in healthcare services due to continuing Covid-19 spikes.
In the aftermath of the Covid pandemic, remote patient monitoring technologies will create new opportunities for hospitals to deliver compelling value beyond traditional brick-and-mortar. Our research and analysis point to growing demands for high-value services driven by innovative RPM technologies and updated business models.
RPM and its expanding role in healthcare are receiving increasing attention, as reflected in the referenced post from Insider Intelligence, below.
