      Remote patient monitoring is an industry-critical conversation right now as the traditional care delivery process is buckling under pressure. Costs of care are escalating, access is continuing to be a problem, and operational challenges in managing post-pandemic, pent-up demand are increasing in prevalence. Beyond this, power is increasingly in the hands of patients with more options than ever to choose between a multitude of competing care and insurance providers.

      Today, meeting patients’ expectations and retaining that relationship is more important than ever. Thus, the healthcare industry has invested significantly in remote patient care to both manage cost and increase access. But much uncertainty remains around how to optimize the role of remote care going forward.

      To help address this uncertainty, Reuters Events convened an expert panel with speakers to share their insights on the timely topic, including thought-provoking insights from Pat O’Doherty, SVP, Digital Healthcare, Analog Devices. Pat sees information overload present in healthcare now, but also sees how the cloud can be beneficial and how measurement and analytics taking place in the cloud can be pushed down to point of care for actionable information.

      Current and Future State of Remote Patient Monitoring

      Patients seem to find remote monitoring quite easy to utilize. However, for providers from a tech standpoint, leveraging clinical-grade monitoring, advanced connectivity, algorithms, etc. is a challenge. The onus for quality of care is on providers, and the path we are currently on—whether from a cost side or bandwidth side—is simply not sustainable. But the future possibilities are exciting to ponder.

      Empowering Self-Health Among Patient Populations

      We often focus on the role and needs of providers and payers, but patient-centric care must be a priority as patients become closer to the role of consumers than ever before. Remote patient monitoring enables patients to take control of their own health, but also poses challenges as these devices can often lead to information overload. The success of self-health will require a holistic view of the entire patient journey and developing a seamless approach for patients and providers alike.

      Increasing Patient Accessibility and Engagement

      Consumer health devices are helping expand access to patients, but to increase consistent engagement—beyond the initial curiosity of wearing these devices—will involve medical cohorts proving their value to overall health. Conveying the importance of a holistic view of using these devices daily will dramatically help improve engagement.

      Phones as a Health Tool for Remote Patient Monitoring

      Their prevalence in life has made cell phones the ideal tool for healthcare management. But phones still don’t deliver the kind of clinical-grade data that physicians need to make informed decisions. Trusted, proven, sensor technologies and complementary tools that can be accessed and delivered to the patient’s clinicians are still necessary to provide clinical care.

      Enabling Physicians to Leverage Real-Time Data

      Real-time data helps physicians immensely in managing a patient’s care. But there’s still a long way to go to ensure this data is used efficiently and properly. Data overload continues to be a problem, overwhelming the physician with constant updates of noncritical data.
