Types of Telehealth

Remote Monitoring

When a patient can benefit from on-going monitoring but will not remain a healthcare facility, remote patient monitoring equipment can be used. Like other types of Telehealth technology, remote patient monitoring devices are used for a variety of applications and have a large range of potential features. The equipment that the patient uses typically includes sensors on a device or an interface to the patient to share input with the provider. In all cases, the data obtained by the monitoring equipment is transferred to a central location where it is evaluated by a healthcare professional and/or a clinical decision support algorithm. Necessary follow-up based on the clinical data is then ensured. New applications of the equipment include units that allow for interactive video-conferencing as well as interfaces for communication between the provider and patient. This communication may include: medication reminders or sharing of educational materials. Please contact us to learn more!
