Remote patient monitoring has provided new care management options to health care providers, including breakthroughs in medicine such as eICU, telepsychology, and telestroke. Other applications of remote patient monitoring include chronic disease management and virtual social work. Like other methods of administering telehealth services, remote patient monitoring includes a host of regulatory and compliance risk factors. Reimbursement of services, billing, and cybersecurity are just some key elements of providing remote patient monitoring services.
In addition, as health care technology shifts from traditional controlled clinical environments to disparate remote environments, management of reliable technology solutions across multiple environments has become a critical part of health care business.
