How does RPM work?

The provider sets up upper and lower limits for such vital metrics as blood pressure, blood glucose, body temperature, oxygen saturation, and pulse. The patient is monitored for abnormalities in these metrics whenever a vitals reading is recorded through the system. Every time, a vital sign crosses a threshold value (upper or lower limit) and wanders outside the set range, an instant alert is triggered in the central system, and the platform sends a notification to the provider, informing him or her those values. 

RPM system provides a high degree of flexibility and ease-of-use. Threshold values can be set up, or existing values modified, in minutes. The provider can also access a full record of all abnormalities recorded by the RPM system by logging into the central system. The system is fully compliant with HIPAA regulations and all data recorded is securely backed up on a regular basis. 

The RPM system is the perfect means of staying connected remotely with the patient to monitor his or her vitals continuously. By sending out instant alerts whenever an abnormality in the vital signs is noticed, and thus allowing for early intervention by the provider, it helps prevent further deterioration of the patient’s condition, false alarms, and unnecessary hospital readmissions.
