Deaconess Health System had been an early adopter of remote patient monitoring (RPM) technology when it was first introduced a decade ago, but manual data extraction left the impact of the program difficult to quantify. Reviving and rethinking the program, Deaconess was able to use a data driven approach to identify the right patient population and cut their readmission rate in half. Patient-friendly equipment led to excellent engagement and a 95% satisfaction rating. Using an integrated platform with dashboards and reporting, the program’s ROI and sustainability was easy to quantify.
