Health care organizations continue to ramp up remote patient monitoring (RPM) programs to expand access, particularly for those with chronic conditions, and reduce costs.
The services initially will be rolled out to ScionHealth’s 18 community hospital campuses in 12 states, with future plans to support the health system’s specialty hospitals and long-term acute patient populations. Services will support managing patients from home who suffer from hypertension, heart failure, diabetes and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
UVA Health will use $700,000 in funds from the Federal Communications Commission and the Department of Agriculture to provide at-home monitoring resources to six different partner sites. Five of the organizations focus on caring for women with heart failure, while the other will concentrate on assisting women who give birth prematurely.
