What is Remote Patient Monitoring?

Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) involves utilizing technology to oversee and attend to patients remotely, offering a unique approach to healthcare delivery. At Medical Offices of Manhattan, our emphasis lies in the remote monitoring of blood pressure. Through continuous observation of your health status and timely assistance as required, RPM has the potential to enhance your well-being and increase the convenience of healthcare services.

How Does Remote Patient Monitoring Work?

In our practice, you will receive a digital blood pressure monitor, and your healthcare provider will guide you on the frequency of checks. The obtained results are transmitted to a portal, enabling your provider to monitor and analyze your historical data. 

Using a simple process—wrapping a cuff around your arm, pushing a button, and obtaining measurements in just 30 seconds—you contribute valuable data. Through observation of this information, your healthcare team gains insights into how your blood pressure behaves in your everyday environment.

What are the Benefits of Remote Patient Monitoring?

Numerous advantages accompany this approach. Initially, it aids in the precise diagnosis of hypertension, distinguishing between its various stages and severity levels. Additionally, it offers insights into the potential occurrence of low blood pressure, also known as hypotension. The system plays a crucial role in identifying whether medication therapy is necessary for treatment and in managing the appropriate dosages. Furthermore, it serves as an alert mechanism for your healthcare provider, notifying them of instances when your blood pressure deviates from the optimal range, whether too high or too low.

Who Can Access Remote Patient Monitoring Data?

The information obtained through remote patient monitoring (RPM) is accessible to both you and your healthcare provider. Using our system, you have the capability to request your latest readings, and your provider can remotely monitor your health, enabling them to make informed decisions about your care.

What is the followup like for RPM?

Your follow-up care may involve in-person appointments or discussions with your doctor via phone. This approach allows us to closely monitor your well-being. We encourage you to engage in these interactions regularly, and many patients find it convenient to consistently share their blood pressure readings. Additionally, our system is designed to notify you if we haven’t received measurements on a regular basis, serving as a reminder to continue monitoring your blood pressure.

Is Remote Patient Monitoring Covered by Insurance?

The majority of insurance plans accepted at the Medical Offices of Manhattan provide coverage for remote patient monitoring (RPM).
