Remote Patient Monitoring services are a Medicare and (most) private insurance covered benefit for individuals with one or more chronic conditions that your physician feels could benefit from frequent monitoring.
For the convenience of patients, this program is primarily carried out over the phone or through electronic communications, eliminating the need for our patients to make a special visit to participate.
How the RPMP Works
You will be provided with a simple to use cellular monitoring devices such as a blood pressure cuff, scale, glucometer (for measuring blood glucose), or pulse oximeter (for measuring blood oxygen).
The device will AUTOMATICALLY and IMMEDIATELY transmit your measurements to your care team. You do not need a cellular phone, an “app”, or an internet connection. You will also have access to a portal to see all of your measurements and ongoing trends.
You and your care team will communicate monthly by phone, video chat, and/or email and text about your readings to ensure your health is stable, and potential strategies and approaches if you are interested in improving your readings.
Proven Benefits of Remote Patient Monitoring
Several studies document the proven benefits of participating in a Remote Patient Monitoring program, including:
- Improved readings from participants indicating an improved health status.
- Lower risk of hospitalization or an acute health event because of the daily monitoring of your measurements.
- Enhanced partnerships with healthcare providers.
- Reduced long-term healthcare expenditures.
How to Get Started
Enrolling in the program is easy. Simply provide your name and phone number below, or let our staff know you’d like to participate. We take it from there, first by gathering any health information, and then by providing a simple to use monitoring device just for you.
