Remote care in the modern world delivers convenience for both patients and practitioners. Creating a two-fold benefit that grows in value with each moment of interaction. Most practices are bridging the gap of timely care by enabling digital patient engagement in healthcare that removes complicated and lengthy hospital visits and re-admissions procedures.
Making digitally enabled healthcare systems streamline early prevention by notifying patients of their health-related anomalies. It offers decreased workload and increased patient onboarding with improved ROI for medical practitioners. Thus, making telehealth, a natural choice with easy and simple healthcare process to transform lives and make medical attention accessible.
Improved Patient Outcomes with Telehealth
Telehealth enables practitioners to provide health services to patients at their homes using digital communication channels. Moreover, the Patient Portal is significantly improving health results. Equally important, care coordination software like Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) and Chronic Care Management (CCM) is also a prominent part of Telehealth.
Telehealth allows practitioners to provide health-related services and monitor patients’ vital signs while the patient is living in a rural area or anywhere in the world.
How is Remote Patient Monitoring improving Patient Engagement?
As per magma research, 25% of providers offer Remote Patient Monitoring services to their patients. According to providers who offer RPM services, patients are more actively tracking their vital measurements and engaging in their treatment plans. Moreover, RPM facilitates providers, patients, caregivers and the complete healthcare system in many ways.
- Improve Quality of Care
- Costs Savings
- Increasing Providers’ Reimbursements
- Improves Patients’ Health Status
- Reducing Hospitals Stays
- Patient Education & Awareness
RPM empowers patients, makes them in charge of their health, and enables them to stay at their homes and be monitored by care providers. In addition, patients will be spending less time and saving costs because of fewer physical visits. After that, digital patient engagement in healthcare, including RPM, improves patient outcomes, patient experience, and quality of care. As we discussed, engaged patients would be able to make better decisions related to their care options and would also be able to manage their diseases in a better way. Furthermore, the effective Remote Patient Monitoring workflow also benefits healthcare providers by empowering them to look after their patients more efficiently. Using advanced digital solutions, RPM workflow allows providers to gather Patient-Generated Health Data (PGHD) from patients’ homes and bill for RPM services under CPT codes 99457, 99453, 99454,99091, and 99458.
How RPM enhances Patient-Provider Relationships?
Remote Patient Monitoring services help both providers and patients by bridging the gap. In addition, patients feel more informed about their health status and build trust in their providers. It improves patient satisfaction and loyalty because they believe their provider is more concerned about their health status and will act sensibly. Besides, strong and continuous communication between provider and patient improves care quality. With the help of technological methods, real-time patient-generated data is transferred to the provider, and then the provider advises the patient to take specific steps. Furthermore, if the provider assesses that patient can’t stay at home anymore and needs hospitalization, the provider asks the patient or their family to take the patient to the hospital.
Personalized Care for Each Patient
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) services empower providers to give personalized care to their patients at home. However, providing personalized healthcare to patients was very difficult in the past, and both practitioners and patients suffered. But in 2022, the situation is entirely different and better. Today, providers offer their patients telehealth services, including RPM and Chronic Care Management (CCM), and the best care possible. In addition, personalized care for patients is only possible because of digital health solutions. And only these advancements in technology made healthcare efficient and more personalized. Today, patient health status is monitored using mobiles and Telehealth’s care coordination services. And within seconds patient’s data is transferred to the doctor, and the provider then advises according to needs.
Continuous Health Monitoring Devices
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) devices undoubtedly, enable the provider to make proactive clinical decisions more efficiently and faster. Patients having chronic diseases are more likely to face complications quickly. So, they need supportive care and are more encouraged to adopt telehealth programs like RPM and CCM. All these devices are enabled with advanced and high-quality sensors and have maximum accuracy rates. They eventually lead to high-quality health outcomes and simultaneously save time and costs.
