For decades, remote patient monitoring (RPM) consisted of paper logs to track vital signs and symptoms and phone calls between appointments. While blood pressure logs and weight tracking were useful for individual patients, there was no practical way to design, deploy and scale a remote patient monitoring program for an entire patient population. But rapid hardware and software innovation, coupled with the widespread adoption of desktop and mobile devices, made smart and efficient remote patient monitoring a reality.

Babyscripts offers a clinically validated obstetrics-specific solution for remote delivery of precision pregnancy care. Through a mobile app and remote monitoring experiences, it targets the problems generated from the critical shortage of obstetrical providers in the U.S., as well as systemic and structural failures that create barriers to care for low-income and minority women. Our solution addresses an outdated model for pregnancy care, social determinants of health barriers and an increasing demand for virtual care solutions. Across the country, hospitals are closing their OB or ED units, making it harder to access quality care for delivery and forcing parents to travel farther for their appointments. Half of rural counties do not have a practicing OB-GYN and more are lacking a midwife.
Perx Health is a chronic care company building the world’s highest-engaging chronic care programs. Poor patient engagement and treatment adherence are the biggest challenges for payers and providers when it comes to delivering chronic care.

INVU provides a remote pregnancy monitoring platform so that physicians can monitor and consult mothers as needed in the comfort of their own environments, no matter where they are.
AccendoWave’s Remote Monitoring Solution objectively measures pain and provides real-time pain data. Pain is one of the primary reasons patients access health care and a primary driver of cost, but since pain data can’t be extracted from electronic health records, health systems don’t have any data or insight about these costs. Additionally, pain has a bias problem: women and pain, ethnicity and pain, seniors and pain. Their number one complaint is often that their pain isn’t believed. If health care systems are serious about their health equity pledges, they must address pain bias with technology to validate patient pain. Retraining the entire clinical workforce just isn’t an option.
Available digital healthcare solutions are evolving and improving rapidly, transforming how healthcare organizations meet patients’ needs. Few healthcare facilities have stood to benefit from the rise of telehealth technology as much as rural hospitals, which often serve as the primary source of outpatient services for underserved local communities. But recently, rural hospitals have struggled to sustain the high levels of outpatient care they typically provide. Additionally, hospitals in rural areas rank last when it comes to telehealth adoption, which has left them poorly prepared to take part in the shift to virtual-first care and put their financial health at risk. According to a recent McKinsey report, that will soon change, as rural hospitals increasingly turn to remote patient monitoring solutions to provide better, more accessible primary care and improve coordination with regionally scarce specialists. To do so, they’ll need to choose the right platform for their use case.
What do academic health systems want when it comes to digital care and remote patient monitoring products? It’s complicated, according to a 2021 Healthcare Innovation report. Remote monitoring and other virtual care solutions must make sense for individual institutions, integrate smoothly into clinical operations, offer clear financial benefits, operate within the existing IT infrastructure and serve the institution’s commitment to education and the community. Fortunately, a wealth of versatile, scalable, almost infinitely customizable options exist to help care teams at academic medical centers deliver cost-effective remote care to just about anyone, anywhere—regardless of age, tech literacy or access to devices. Other platforms are even being utilized to identify study candidates and remotely collect data to support decentralized clinical trials.
Remote patient monitoring isn’t a novel idea in pediatrics—for certain chronic pediatric conditions, it’s been the standard of care for years. But recent device and software innovations, coupled with the larger shift toward virtual care, mean that pediatric hospitals have more and better options than ever. User-friendly patient engagement tools and flexible device options keep patients and caregivers/parents involved in the care process and more likely to adhere to recommended care plans. Providers can take advantage of better data collection and sophisticated data analysis tools to inform treatment recommendations, decrease hospital and clinic traffic, decrease their administrative burden and boost revenue.

Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is the ability for patients to share biometric and other data from a non-clinical setting, like their home, with their care team as part of a provider-supported program of care. Populations who most benefit from RPM are patients with uncontrolled chronic conditions such as hypertension, congestive heart failure, and diabetes; seniors with multiple and complex conditions; and patients with a rising risk of the conditions listed above.
