Looking for a remote patient monitoring white paper? The CareSimple Ultimate Guide to Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) offers all the essential information you’d expect from a comprehensive RPM white paper, plus a wealth of additional information. From a basic definition and brief history of RPM to a deep dive into devices and some advanced use cases, our Ultimate Guide is more than just a white paper — it’s a complete guide to understanding every aspect of remote patient monitoring.

Everything you need to know about remote patient monitoring

Just as with a dedicated remote patient monitoring white paper, our RPM Ultimate Guide delves into every corner of this essential clinical technology and its context within the larger U.S. healthcare system. All of the most pressing questions around this important clinical technology are addressed, including:

  • What is remote patient monitoring, and why is it important to patient care today?
  • How does RPM relate to other concepts like telehealth or chronic care management (CCM)?
  • How is RPM used to deliver patient care?
  • What type of technology or devices are used to deliver RPM?
  • What virtual communication tools are used to connect caregivers with patients?
  • How does RPM benefit patients, providers and payers?
  • What should providers know about funding a new RPM program?

The CareSimple RPM Ultimate Guide also includes a guide to estimating the costs of a remote patient monitoring program, including a look at the key factors driving this consideration like the type of facilities using the program, the population being served, what devices are needed (and how many), the type of software best suited for the program’s goals, and what workforce adjustments need to be made.

Going into much more detail than a typical remote patient monitoring white paper, the Ultimate Guide also offers a deep dive into the devices the drive RPM — including remote blood pressure monitors, remote pulse oximeters, remote weight scales, remote spirometers and remote glucometers — and how they enable people to receive attentive, high-quality care from the comfort of their homes.

“Many of these RPM devices can also be used in other types of patient care,” as the Ultimate Guide points out. “For instance, a remote blood pressure monitor is essential for chronic care management programs, while a remote spirometer is of use to providers implementing remote therapeutic programs. And the best of these devices let patients upload their information into a clinical portal and EHR/EMR in near real-time.”

More comprehensive than a remote patient monitoring white paper

With dozens of sections and an easy-to-navigate layout, the CareSimple Ultimate Guide to Remote Patient Monitoring delivers more information than an RPM white paper, and much more accessibly, too.

For instance, it goes into detail on the many different ways that RPM is being used to treat high-acuity patients, such as those with serious injury or a chronic disease — a huge category of costly health conditions that includes heart disease, kidney disease, cancer, COPD or other severe respiratory conditions, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and depression, among many others.

The Ultimate Guide also talks about how RPM benefits healthcare providers, the patients they treat, as well as the payers. For instance, patients have embraced remote patient monitoring for a variety of reasons, including the convenience and comfort it offers. And providers get access to higher-quality clinical outcomes than ever before, helping them do their jobs more efficiently and cost effectively.

In addition to being a standalone model of care management, remote patient monitoring is also a major part of other care management models, as the Ultimate Guide explains. These include not only chronic care management (CCM), but also post-discharge models like transitional care management (TCM) and principal care management (PCM). Our enhanced white paper offers details on each, and describes how today’s providers are offering at-home care for high-risk patients along every stage of their journey.

To that end, our RPM Ultimate Guide also offers a look at how RPM supports other important healthcare initiatives, such as population health management and hospital-at-home (HaH) programs. Each of these concepts have become central to today’s healthcare industry, and our RPM guide goes into detail on how remote patient monitoring is a fundamental part of both.
