Helping You Live a More Active and Fulfilling Life

Hypertension, diabetes, obesity, and other chronic conditions can make life difficult to manage for millions of people, often limiting what they can do on their own and — if not treated — ultimately forcing them to give up their independence.

The Challenges of Chronic Disease

Every day, millions of people with chronic diseases struggle to manage their symptoms. Chronic diseases can affect a person’s ability to perform important activities, restricting their engagement in life, and their enjoyment of family and friends.
About 80% of older adults have one chronic disease, 75% have two or more chronic diseases, and 36% have four or more.

Virginia Arrhythmia Consultants Remote Patient Monitoring Program

Addressing chronic diseases often requires new strategies to delay health deterioration, improve function, and address the problems that people confront in their day-to-day lives.

That’s why Virginia Arrhythmia Consultants has established a Remote Patient Monitoring Program (RPMP) that is designed to empower individuals with chronic diseases to better manage their care and improve their quality of life, through the assistance of one or more monitoring devices, and a care team working under the supervision of your physician.

This low-cost or free program is focused on helping you share your daily measurements with your care team so that they can help you improve your overall health status.


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.

Convenient Access

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.
