Reducing readmission rates in chronic disease populations is of growing concern for hospitals. One option is remote patient monitoring, which allows clinicians to track patient data and intervene if necessary before hospitalization. However, without careful planning, hospitals may have difficulty validating the benefits of a program, much less implementing one.
Determine Need, Design a Program, and Select the Right Vendor
ECRI Institute's expert consultants work with hospitals to navigate the complexities of remote patient monitoring by providing customized consulting to build a program from the ground up.
Our Remote Patient Monitoring Consulting Service includes:
- An Evidence-based Needs Assessment: Evaluates the latest clinical literature on the effectiveness of remote patient monitoring on reducing readmission rates for targeted chronic disease populations (e.g., diabetes, congestive heart failure, COPD).
- Implementation Planning: Determines patient selection criteria and training requirements, design clinical monitoring protocols, establish criteria for measuring success, and address program scalability.
- Unbiased Vendor Selection: Guides stakeholders through the process of vendor selection, focusing on clinically relevant technological differences and cost of ownership.
