What Are the Benefits of Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) for Patients?​​

There are many benefits of remote patient monitoring (RPM) for clinicians — ease of access to patient data, the ability to deliver higher-quality care to more patients with a lower risk of burnout — and for healthcare providers — lower costs and higher efficiency, to name just a couple. But what are the benefits of remote patient monitoring (RPM) for the patients?

It’s a question with a number of very encouraging answers. And as telehealth companies continue to innovate new and better technological solutions, even more benefits are likely to emerge in the years to come. But, in brief, the primary benefits of RPM to patients include:

  • Better access to healthcare
  • Improved quality of care
  • Peace of mind and daily assurance
  • Improved support, education and feedback

RPM Benefits to Patients: Improved Quality

In addition to improving the quantity of care, RPM also has the ability to improve the quality of care. Since RPM connects clinicians more directly (and virtually instantly) with relevant patient data, it makes their daily routines more efficient and eases the possibility of burnout — resulting in obvious benefits to patient care.

Even better, RPM improves patient behavior by creating a system by which people are more engaged with, and accountable for, their health. Effective RPM programs offer technology that — far from being the cold, clinical, intimidating medical technology that springs to mind for many consumers — is actually comfortable and familiar to patients.

RPM Benefits to Patients: Assurance

Important as patient comfort and engagement are, the benefits of remote patient monitoring go beyond that, offering patients invaluable assurance that someone is watching out for their health and well-being on a daily basis.
