As remote patient monitoring becomes more prevalent, the data continues to show how valuable implementing an RPM program can be. Several reports show that providers and patients are continuously growing more open to the idea and intend to utilize the technology in the future. With the arrival of PDGM and RCD, home health agencies have little time to research and understand how this technology can assist them in moving forward. Below we’ve detailed 3 of the most significant benefits RPM can provide home health agencies.

Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) Reduces Avoidable Re- Hospitalizations

Reducing avoidable readmissions and improving patient outcomes go hand-in-hand. One of the biggest challenges agencies face when trying to accomplish both is lack of clarity when not physically in the home, putting an additional burden on staff to make calls and get patient vitals/other information as time permits. RPM offers both the patient and HHA a more proactive solution by placing a cellular or Bluetooth connected device in the patient’s home. Depending on the technology solution providers implement, they can receive and review patient data, automate a wide variety of alerts, reminders, and notifications in near real-time, allowing them to intervene at a moment’s notice.

RPM Improves Patient Engagement

RPM provides patients with a structured and straightforward way of building healthy habits. It can also function like a scoreboard, which allows them to see improvements and hold themselves accountable. When a patient knows their provider is monitoring them daily, they are more likely to be proactive with their decisions and engaged in the team approach to get better. RPM can be especially helpful with patients who struggle to adhere to a medical regimen by providing automated reminders and educational content.

RPM Strengthens Referral Relationships

Due to the amount of competition HHAs face, having trusted and robust referral relationships is a must. These relationships typically take tremendous amounts of time and energy to build, constant effort to maintain and can end rather abruptly. Like any relationship, the more you bring to the table, the better probability you have for it to flourish. By implementing remote patient monitoring, HHA’s have another way to show they are striving to improve the quality of care they deliver.
