Remote Patient Monitoring

Our HIPAA compliant Remote patient monitoring enables the health care facility to monitor patients outside of conventional clinical settings.

Our HIPAA compliant Remote patient monitoring enables the health care facility to monitor patients outside of conventional clinical settings, such as in the home, work place or in any remote area, thereby increase access to care, provide timely care and decrease healthcare delivery costs.

Health care providers can use our RPM module in chronic-disease management and significantly improve patient’s quality of life, by allowing patients to maintain independence, prevent complications, and to minimize personal costs. RPM facilitates these goals by delivering care through telecommunications. Our RPM module allows to record patient parameters like BP, EKG, Blood Sugar, Weight, SpO2 etc. from home or from any remote location and automatically transmit the data into our application using our Patient Portal mobile App. The monitoring of patient physiologic parameters and trend analysis of those parameters, enable early detection of deterioration, assessing and adjusting medications; thereby reducing emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and the duration of hospital stay.

Key Features of our RPM Module:

A mobile Patient Portal app for entering and tracking patient parameters like BP, EKG, Blood Sugar, Weight, SpO2 etc.

The healthcare provider team can access our web-based software that includes the following capabilities:

  • Securely viewing patient remote monitoring data in our application.
  • The parameters from the patient device is transmitted electronically into our application either by auto transmission of data by the device’s blue tooth or by patient manually entering these parameters using our patient portal mobile app.
  • Two-way communication with patients through our patient portal.
  • Patient are assigned to the Physician, Nurse Practitioner or Physician assistant or by qualified Clinical staff. Clinical staff may include RNs and medical assistants, depending on state law.
  • Physician, Nurse Practitioner or Physician assistant or qualified Clinical Staff can access and track patient parameters.
  • The time spent in reviewing the data by the Physician, Nurse Practitioner or Physician assistant or qualified Clinical Staff is automatically recorded each time and cumulative minutes spent on each parameter for each patient is recorded.
  • Patient interaction via phone or texting by the physician or approved health care personnel is recorded with date and time. The Patient Interaction report can be accessed and uploaded into patient’s HER for documentation purpose.
  • Easy Generation of RPM Billing Report that includes time spent in reviewing the data or talking to the patient for Billing Compliance that can be uploaded into patient EHR in a PDF format or the reports can be printed and uploaded into EHR.
