Course Description

From patients and professionals to payers, providers, and facilities, the benefits of remote patient monitoring (RPM) extend to virtually every member of the modern healthcare continuum. As our experts explain in this exclusive course from the Care Innovations® RPM Academy, these benefits include greater engagement for patients, reduced risk for payers, and improved workflow for clinicians, among quite a few others.

Course Outline

  • How Does RPM Benefit the Patient?2:38

    The benefits of RPM for patients are numerous. As our experts explain, RPM has been shown to improve patient behavior by providing a sense of accountability and an assurance that someone is watching out for their wellbeing. Because it also provides constant monitoring, education, support and feedback, patients often feel more engaged with RPM than with traditional healthcare, and are more likely to adhere to health goals.
    In this lesson, you will learn:

    • How RPM can help improve patient behavior
    • Why patients feel more accountable with RPM
    • How RPM offers patients assurance and support
    • How RPM provides valuable education and feedback

  • How Does RPM Benefit the Clinician?2:38

    The benefits that RPM can offer to healthcare providers include not just improved clinical workflows but also a more manageable work/life balance, our experts explain in this lesson. Remote patient monitoring expedites the process of obtaining patient data while providing info that’s more timely, accurate and actionable. It also eliminates the “information gap” between visits, allowing for more efficient patient management.
    In this lesson, you will learn:

    • How RPM allows for more efficient patient management
    • Why the data provided by RPM is more timely and accurate
    • Why RPM info is considered more actionable
    • How RPM eliminates the patient/clinician “information gap”

  • How Does RPM Benefit Providers?2:44

    In this lesson, our experts run down the list of benefits that healthcare systems can gain by utilizing remote patient management. By helping to mitigate readmission penalizations and helping to ensure that patients receive quality (and low-cost) care even after discharge, RPM programs have the potential to not only improve outcomes, reduce risk, and cut costs, but also to inspire greater loyalty among patients.
    In this lesson, you will learn:

    • How RPM can save costs and increase operating margin
    • How RPM can help mitigate the risk of readmission penalties
    • The importance of RPM to post-discharge care
    • How RPM can strengthen patient loyalty

  • How Does RPM Benefit Payers?2:12

    How does RPM benefit the groups that pay for it? The constant monitoring offered by remote care can lead to early detection of serious events, helping reduce expensive emergency room visits and hospital readmissions. And because health plan members tend to feel more engaged and satisfied with quality care at home, RPM can also increase member satisfaction and loyalty, helping to improve payer quality scores, too.
    In this lesson, you will learn:

    • How RPM reduces costs by driving utilization
    • Why RPM is particularly effective for higher-risk patients
    • How RPM can increase member satisfaction and loyalty
    • How RPM can improve payer quality scores

  • How Does RPM Benefit Home Care?2:14

    RPM offers a range of important advantages to home care organizations, including the power to improve operational efficiencies by eliminating the expense of unnecessary house calls and letting providers better optimize the time they spend with patients. As our experts explain in this lesson, these benefits also include the potential to boost patient satisfaction, which can lead to a greater number of patient referrals.
    In this lesson, you will learn:

    • How RPM can help the home care triage process
    • How RPM helps clinicians optimize time spent with patients
    • How RPM helps providers avoid unnecessary visits
    • Why patient referrals may increase with RPM

  • How Does RPM Improve Care?2:07

    From providing clinicians with the ability to monitor patients between visits to promoting patient engagement with their own health, remote patient management has the potential to improve care in a number of ways. RPM also encourages the proactive (as opposed to reactive) adjustment of care plans by giving providers more insight into what’s going on with patients and the chance to intervene before a (high-cost) crisis occurs.
    In this lesson, you will learn:

    • How RPM can improve care across the continuum
    • How RPM empowers clinicians to better monitor patients
    • How RPM improves patient engagement and adherence
    • How RPM lets providers make proactive care adjustments
