New York Healthcare System, 18th January 2022: A recent study was done by Christopher Kellner, MD, and David Putrino, Ph.D., the remote patient monitoring apps in New York were earlier developed for stroke patients. After the outbreak of COVID-19, healthcare providers began to offer medical care through these apps to all patients all over New York.
Remote patient monitoring healthcare apps developed by SISGAIN help them to monitor their patients’ health conditions. With the help of remote patient monitoring apps, doctors are now able to save their hospital resources by treating the patients virtually at home. These apps have provided the benefit of treating patients with worse conditions without any trouble.
Remote patient monitoring apps have software that can track symptoms like body temperature, cough, breathing levels, body aches, etc. Doctors can treat the patient by having an online video chat with the patient. RPM apps have a patient portal where they describe their medical conditions which can be easily viewed by a doctor.
According to the survey we conducted, 32% of patients prefer to use RPM apps for online appointment booking and 29% have a patient portal in New York.
During the pandemic, there were 55,173 hospitalizations and this was straining the healthcare systems. The invention of RPM apps helped in managing the situation and taking care of patients who were not COVID affected.
RPM devices enable the transmission of healthcare data all across the health system which further made it easy for the doctors to get a good diagnosis for a disease. All the healthcare systems in New York are utilizing remote patient monitoring devices to deliver care that is the safest, highest-quality, most accessible and equitable, and the best value to deliver the best medical care to their citizens.
