  • Pros And Cons Of Remote Patient Monitoring

    Do you go to the doctor only in case of extreme necessity? Visiting clinics keeps its place among the least favorite activities in society. So, it’s not a surprise that tech-savvy specialists try to minimize the number of such visits by creating new healthcare devices and technologies. People have already got used to super popular fitness wearables that track heart-rate or calories burned; but what about devices that are used for remote monitoring of more complex issues, e.g. chronic diseases?

  • Advances In mHealth: Remote Monitoring In Clinical Trials

    Remote monitoring – a key element of mHealth, where mobile solutions are used to deliver health – is becoming ubiquitous in the U.S. population. Some 60 percent of U.S. adults track their weight, diet, or exercise routine, and a recent Gartner forecast predicted that the overall wearable market would expand from 275 million devices in 2016 to 323 million devices in 2017.

  • The Problem With Consumerism In Healthcare

    Many industry leaders championed a free market approach to healthcare during the 12th Annual World Health Care Congress last week. Here are a few key reasons why I don’t think this model is “the fix” our industry so desperately needs.


Remote patient monitoring (RPM), or remote monitoring, is technology that enables healthcare providers to monitor patients outside of the normal healthcare environment. Remote patient monitoring may increase access to care for patients and decrease healthcare delivery costs. With remote monitoring, patients can resume normal daily activities while having their current vital signs and other at-risk factors monitored by their healthcare provider. This can also provide patients with a level of comfort, knowing that they are being monitored and supported by healthcare professionals at all times.

Remote monitoring also provides healthcare providers with extended sets of medical data, providing a non-stop stream of patient data to allow for trend analysis and other reporting.

Remote monitoring is becoming more common among dementia patients, patients at risk of falling, diabetes patients, and many others. The Veterans Health Administration has been an early adopter of RPM technologies and the United Kingdom's Department of Health launched a program in 2008 aimed at increasing access to RPM technologies. Depending on the diseases and the parameters that are monitored, different combinations of sensors, storage, and applications must be deployed.
