Though often used interchangeably, the terms “telehealth” and “remote patient management” (RPM) are not precisely the same thing. Telehealth is a broader term that describes all types of remote interaction between clinicians and patients — from phone calls to videoconferencing to the collection of patient data via remote devices to the actual technological development of those devices. RPM is considered a type of telehealth, referring more specifically to the technology itself. Telehealth is “the broad category,” says Julie Cherry, RN, MSN, “remote patient management then just becomes a part of telehealth.”
