Diabetes and Remote Patient Monitoring

How RPM helps with Diabetes

Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) for a practice’s diabetes population is particularly beneficial. RPM also helps to improve financial outcomes, patient engagement, and clinical outcomes.

Patient blood glucose measurements are taken on a regular ongoing basis. These measurements are automatically shared with the care team.  Meaning, patients continue to be monitored between office visits so that the care team have a clearer picture of patient progress, so they can proactively customize patient care and if required, immediately address any concerns when data is out of range in order to prevent complications.

The use of remote patient monitoring (RPM) to track blood glucose levels has been shown to reduce HbA1c levels in diabetic patients over a year-long period. Studies indicate that consistent use of RPM can help patients maintain lower HbA1c levels, which leads to better overall health outcomes and lessens the likelihood of associated complications, such as retinopathy and nephropathy.
