Remote Patient Monitoring Q & A

What should I know about remote patient monitoring?

Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is a type of medical service that uses innovative telecommunication technology to monitor and manage health issues from a distance. It's a type of telehealth that monitors, collects, and transmits health data to your provider without a visit to the office.

Your provider uses the data to assess health, monitor the effectiveness of your treatment, and make quick adjustments to improve health. RPM also helps your provider find health issues before they become serious problems, preventing visits to the emergency room.

Nectar RPM is a remote patient monitoring practice dedicated to providing the tools and support you need to manage your health from the comfort of your home.

What devices do I need for remote patient monitoring?

The type of medical devices you need for RPM depends on your diagnosis. Some of the devices Nectar RPM may use include:

Pulse oximeter

A pulse oximeter is a medical device that measures oxygen levels in your blood. You may benefit from this device if you have COPD or concerns about cardiovascular health. 

Blood pressure monitor

Blood pressure monitors collect, track, and transmit your blood pressure readings. Your blood pressure fluctuates throughout the day, and RPM can help you better understand what activities raise your blood pressure and what you can do to bring it down.

Weight scale

Maintaining a healthy weight benefits many chronic health conditions, including diabetes and hypertension. Nectar RPM also uses a remote weight scale for people with CHF to monitor for fluid retention.

Nectar RPM uses remote blood glucose monitors for people with diabetes. Regular blood glucose checks improve control and may reduce the risk of complications.
