Stimulus Package for Telehealth
Remote patient monitoring (RPM) provides measurable financial and clinical benefits, enabling patients to receive in-home care, a more efficient use of healthcare system resources; reducing hospitalization and readmission rates because clinicians can identify changes in patients’ health before conditions become acute; decreasing the frequency of in-home visits, which also reduces staff travel time; and increasing patients’ compliance with their care plans, leading to lower costs and improved efficiencies.
