Free White Paper: Remote Monitoring Connections Curtail Utilization, Cost in Chronic Illness

Remote monitoring of individuals with multiple chronic conditions reduced hospitalizations, hospital readmissions and ER visits for more than 80 percent of respondents and boosted disease self-management for nearly all of these monitored patients, according to a survey on Remote Patient Monitoring by the Healthcare Intelligence Network (HIN).

More than half of 2014 respondents — 54 percent — have instituted remote monitoring programs, the survey found, which was most often employed for patients or health plan members with multiple chronic conditions (83 percent). Other targets of a remote monitoring strategy included frequent utilizers of hospitals and ERs (62 percent) and the recently discharged (52 percent).

This 40-page report, based on responses to HIN's inaugural industry survey on remote patient monitoring conducted in 2014, examines technologies employed in remote monitoring as well as this strategy's early impact on healthcare access and utilization, especially as a tactic to reduce hospital readmissions.

This market research is supported with dozens of graphs and tables and describes emerging trends in remote patient monitoring, providing a high-level look at overall responses and drilling down to sector-specific practices in the following areas:

  • Actionable metrics on prevalence of remote monitoring programs;
  • Strategies to identify candidates for remote monitoring;
  • Health conditions and activities monitored remotely;
  • Principal characteristics of individuals monitored remotely;
  • Key components of remote monitoring programs;
  • Tools and technologies employed in remote monitoring, such as motion detectors, call pendants, interactive voice response (IVR), mHealth apps, and others;
  • Results and ROI from remote monitoring efforts, such as the impact of this practice on ER visits, hospital readmissions, and the patient and caregiver experience;
