Remote patient monitoring solutions enable monitoring of patients outside of conventional clinical settings, such as in the home or at work using sensors installed on the patients body or in their environment. Incorporating remote patient monitoring in chronic-disease management may significantly improve an individual's quality of life, by allowing patients to maintain independence, prevent complications, and minimize inpatient healthcare costs. Remote patient monitoring facilitates these goals by combining telecommunications with sensors and trend analysis of physiological parameters. Early detection of deterioration reduces emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and the duration of hospital stays. Monitoring data can be easily accessed via a smart device.
