An excerpt from the American Heart Association's recent report:


"Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) can empower patients to better manage their health and participate in their healthcare. When used by clinicians, RPM can provide a more holistic view of a patient’s health over time, increase visibility into a patient’s adherence to a treatment and enable timely intervention before a costly episode of care.


Clinicians can strengthen their relationships with and improve the experience of their patients by using the data sent to them via RPM to develop a personalized care plan and to engage in joint decision-making to foster better outcomes. The American Heart Association supports initiatives that increase access to and incentivize the appropriate design and use of evidence-based remote patient monitoring technologies.


The cost of healthcare has soared to untenable heights. In the United States, federal healthcare spending is rapidly approach 20% of GDP. Furthermore, chronic disease is highly prevalent, accounting for nearly 90% of all healthcare spending in the United States.


Additionally, it costs 3.5 times more to treat chronic diseases than it does other conditions, and they account for 80% of all hospital admissions. Additionally, access to care is variable based on socioeconomic issues and environmental factors. In recent years, rapid advancements in healthcare delivery models and low-cost wireless communication have spurred optimism in finding cost-effective, value-enhancing solutions to these issues. Remote Patient Monitoring and Management is one such disruptive innovation.


RPM is a tool and not a treatment. How Remote Patient Monitoring is used is important; how the real-time patient generated data is used in the enablement of patient-centric care is the ultimate goal. Live data is a key element of efficient healthcare. It is the new normal. "
