Providence has launched a remote patient monitoring program to improve care for patients with chronic conditions. The program uses a combination of remote monitoring technology and care management services to allow patients to be monitored at home. Patients are then provided with a tablet and biometric devices to track their health data, which is then analyzed by care teams. The program aims to improve patient outcomes and reduce hospital admissions and emergency room visits.
"Of the 300 patients participating in the program, 89 percent take vitals daily, and only 0.2 percent of remote encounters escalated to engagement with Providence clinicians, according to the press release. Additional benefits of the program include increased adherence to guideline-directed medical therapies (GDMT) and reductions in blood pressure among hypertension patients. Now aiming to support patients throughout Providence’s seven-state footprint, the partnership will scale the program. In 2023, it will be extended across Washington service areas. Currently supporting hypertension, congestive heart failure, and type 2 diabetes, the health system also plans to add chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) care to the program in 2024." - mHEALTH INTELLIGENCE
