RPM is the utilization of technology to gather patient data and provide it to clinicians outside of the traditional healthcare setting.
Telehealth is an “umbrella” term that also encompasses telemedicine, remote patient monitoring (RPM), and even digital health.
Telehealth describes all remote interaction between clinicians and patients; RPM refers more to specific technologies and methodologies.
The term mHealth means mobile health, and usually refers to self-management tools like fitness and diet apps that don’t involve clinicians.
Remote patient management (RPM) is paid for by organizations that either carry financial risk, or are seeking to drive quality improvements.
The extent to which Medicare and Medicaid can pay for remote patient management (RPM) varies from state to state, but has been expanding.
Private insurance plans do cover remote patient management (RPM), particularly Medicare Advantage and other at-risk entities.
RPM improves patient engagement and accountability via constant monitoring, support, feedback, education, and a sense of assurance.
RPM benefits clinicians by offering accurate, timely insights into patient behavior, allowing them to treat more patients, more effectively.
RPM benefits payers by reducing hospital readmissions and ER visits, increasing member satisfaction, and helping improve quality scores.
RPM benefits providers by mitigating risk, helping caregivers treat post-discharge patients more effectively, and nurturing patient loyalty.
RPM can improve home care efficiency by helping caregivers avoid unnecessary visits and enabling them to optimize time spent with patients.
RPM satisfies the “triple aim” of healthcare by offering improved health outcomes, better patient satisfaction and lower overall costs.
The elements that support the technology (logistics, clinical monitoring, people) are what truly determine the success of an RPM program.
RPM improves care with continuous patient monitoring, improved adherence to guidelines, and the power to adjust proactively, not reactively.
Initially created for seniors, RPM is now used to treat many populations, including high-risk pregnancies, organ transplants, and others.
RPM helps improve medication adherence by giving clinicians and informal caregivers the power to better monitor patients’ daily habits.
Beyond elderly and chronic care, RPM is now used to treat populations including mental health, high-risk pregnancy, diabetes and others.
From an initial examination of logistics and workflow to wide-scale deployment, here are the steps to launch an effective RPM program.
As our experts explain, the specific costs of an RPM program vary depending on scope, technology, and a number of other factors.
