Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions from patients
Remote patient monitoring is a technology to collect physiological data to enable monitoring of patients outside of conventional clinical settings, such as in the home or in a remote area.
This data is used by the patient’s healthcare provider to better manage chronic conditions which may improve patient’s health outcomes and decrease healthcare costs.
Remote monitoring technologies collect, analyze and securely transmit vital patient information to health care providers (even hundreds of miles away), allowing physicians to manage a patient's condition in a more consistent and real-time fashion.
This technology can not only improve the quality of care given to you by your doctor, but it also reduces the need for frequent visits to the doctor's office, costly emergency room visits, and unnecessary hospitalizations.
The health data provides a more complete picture of your health over time providing better insight into trends and alerting the doctor when intervention is required.
Patients can access their data via an App on a mobile phone and via the StreamVitals website. The Doctor and the StreamVitals Care team will also see the data and will be reviewing the results with each patient on a monthly basis.
Patients can also choose who else to share their data with, e.g. family, other Doctors.
