Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, making it one of the greatest challenges the healthcare industry faces. With more than 42% of Medicare beneficiaries living with at least one heart condition, this population is especially impacted by this challenge.
This risk to develop cardiovascular disease or worsen it can become significantly higher if patients avoid traditional office visits and do not have the necessary resources to manage these types of conditions. Virtual care can close the gap between people needing care and not being able to receive it.
One solution proved to have positive results in helping Medicare cardiology patients better manage their heart disease is Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM).
Its ability to monitor patients’ vitals in real-time grants providers access to early detection and clinical visibility of their patients’ health. This way they can identify and address health concerns such as elevated blood pressure more quickly.
It also helps improve self-management and compliance in their patient population. Patients who track their progress with pulse oximeters and pressure cuffs tend to become more aware of their health and engaged in reaching their goals.
