We define telehealth as the utilization of tools to deliver medical services remotely. These services include remote patient visits, monitoring, self-care, and increased patient engagement – the list is endless. That is because, here at Vicert, we wish to make health accessible and available to all.
Telehealth technology allows us to reach a standard of healthcare delivery. No matter who, when, or where – we want to provide you with the service you deserve. That is why we spent decades perfecting our abilities to develop and deliver the product you desire, and that will help your organization reach optimal levels of healthcare delivery.
Remote Patient Monitoring
As the name suggests, remote patient monitoring refers to the delivery of healthcare services without the traditional visits to doctors or clinicians. By relying on telemedicine solutions, it allows for progress-tracking, self-management, and access to care in the comfort of your own home.
Built on several provider-patient components, such as health apps for clients, HIPAA-compliant videos or chats, and EHR integration, RPM in healthcare can deliver the transformation of care – and we at Vicert can deliver RPM.
Benefits of Remote Patient Monitoring
There is a number of benefits related to remote health. When talking specifically about those related to remote patient monitoring, we can differentiate between the benefits for providers and patients.
- Raises productivity – when it comes to diagnostics and data analysis, RPM in healthcare gives clinicians the ability to quickly and easily assess the cumulative patient data collected by an RPM device. That means that care providers can focus on what matters most: the delivery of high-quality care
- Improves the overall flow of the organization – RPM devices can easily track and collect data from multiple patients. Care providers can now easily focus on multiple patients at a time, collect data, retain patients, and gain new ones
- Reduction of no-shows – canceled (forgotten) doctor’s appointments are a regular occurrence. Serverless technology has the potential to make in-person visits obsolete
- Better quality of care – utilization of wearable devices in healthcare means that care providers have the most up-to-date information. Effectively, they can instantly focus on diagnostics and treatment, as opposed to going through mountains of data
- Remote diagnosis – wearable medical devices can make in-person doctor visits obsolete. That means more time on the patient’s hands, less disease transmission in the waiting room, and flattening the curve would be made significantly easier
- Patient management – patients can become active participants in their well-being. They can manage their therapy, track progress, and learn about their condition – specific needs in real-time
From wearables to implants to software – the list of medical devices is quite long. World Health Organization estimates about 2 million different medical device technologies. A medical device can be anything from an apparatus, machine, implant, appliance, or software – anything that helps facilitate the delivery of medical care.
The overall goal of medical devices is to improve the quality of healthcare delivery. These include but are not limited to regular medical procedures, emergency interventions, and long-term patient tracking.
Medical Device Examples
Because of the nature of medical devices, it is hard to complete an exhaustive list. We can simply look at the most widespread ones: medical imaging, such as CT scans and X-rays, comprise some of the basic medical technology available to assist clinicians.
The evolution of technology allowed us to focus on the deployment of AI in healthcare, wearable patient progress-tracking technology, and even a tool that provides you with a diagnosis as you sleep!
Our decades of experience allowed us to become experts in developing telehealth software. Feel free to browse through our products and see what we already know – Vicert is the perfect fit for your product needs.
