What is Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM)?
RPM is a comprehensive monitoring system that enables a patient to take their vitals at home and transmit the information over to the EVNRA Nursing Team in real-time. The electronic information helps us identify any risk factors that may emerge between doctor office visits. A nurse will call to evaluate the patient, reinforce chronic disease management education, and notify the provider if an intervention is needed. Providers do not get called unless a pattern is noted (seven days of abnormal readings) or patient is symptomatic. RPM is Bluetooth enabled with transmissions via satellite. It does not require internet or a landline in the home.
