Remote Patient Monitoring Kit Supports Telehealth

A web-based remote patient monitoring (RPM) platform transmits real-time biometric data to healthcare providers, facilitating chronic disease management.

The WITHmyDOC (Ft. Lauderdale, FL, USA) RPM@Home is designed for chronic care management, using advanced artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver predictive analytics and a bilateral notification system. The system provides on-line review capabilities of patients' biometric data between office visits as frequently as needed, making it easier for providers and clinicians to detect, diagnose, and treat emerging symptoms. The patient-centric platform is both device- and electronic health record (EHR) agnostic.

Internet of things (IoT) devices included in the base kit are a pulse oximeter, a weight scale, a blood pressure monitor, and a 10-inch tablet that transmits vital data to the physicians' office in real time and communicates critical alerts programmed for individual patients. Also available are a glucometer, a 24-hour continuous monitoring temperature sensor, and an ECG/respiratory rate sensor. As monitoring can be done while the patient is in an isolation unit, at the hospital, or even at home, RPM@Home can minimize healthcare professionals' exposure to COVID-19infected patients.

“This is a new world for healthcare. As telemedicine takes on a more significant role in healthcare delivery in the future, remote patient monitoring and the RPM@Home patient kit will be key drivers,” said Richard Rodriguez, CEO of WITHmyDOC. “Incorporating remote patient monitoring in chronic disease management can significantly improve patients' quality of life by preventing complications, allowing them to maintain independence and minimizing personal costs.”

Incorporating RPM technology in chronic-disease management can significantly improve quality of life by allowing patients to maintain independence, prevent complications, and minimize cost, particularly in patients who are managing complex self-care processes such as home hemodialysis. RPM can also help undertake trend analysis of physiological parameters, thereby reducing emergency department (ED) visits, hospitalizations, and the duration of hospital stay.
