Seeking new uses of remote patient monitoring

The spotlight continues to shine on remote patient monitoring, particularly as providers and hospitals seek accountable care partnerships to save money and improve outcomes. According to separate reports published this year--first by Kalorama, and then by Frost & Sullivan--technologies like low-energy Bluetooth and near-field communication are helping to push the implementation of RPM. 

In that vein, ATA is hosting an executive roundtable discussion entitled "Emerging Markets for Remote Monitoring Applications," on Monday, May 2 at 1 p.m.  Boasting a panel of C-suite health executives, including Louis J. Burns of Intel-GE Care Innovations, the session will focus on the diversification of RPM and the use of wireless apps in clinical trials and other areas outside the chronic disease realm.

Other educational sessions dedicated to RPM include Monday morning's "Approaches to Maintain Patient Care Outside of the Hospital through Telemonitoring," which will be moderated by Jamie Adleer, the VA Great Lakes Health System's acting clinical video telehealth coordinator.
