What Is Telehealth?

The telephone is a cornerstone of mass communication and allows us to contact people from across the world. Similarly, telehealth, or telemedicine, allows the distribution of health-related services and information via telecommunication and electronic information technologies. Telehealth facilitates long-distance patient admissions, care, advice, intervention, and monitoring.
Though telehealth is not an option for all healthcare services, especially physical examinations, it offers accessibility and convenience for many. It can time and money on traveling to and from appointments. Telehealth is also beneficial for those who have highly contagious diseases or viruses as well as chronic health issues.

Remote Patient Monitoring

Remote patient monitoring is a subcategory of telehealth which allows patients to use mobile medical devices and technology to collect health-related data. The gathered data is secure and readily accessible only by authorized users such as your primary physician. Common data that can be collected include vital signs, weight, blood pressure and heart rate.
At Southern Maryland Medical Group, our most common services include remote patient monitoring for diabetes as well as remote patient monitoring for high blood pressure. These services are frequently used for patients that require chronic, post-discharge, or senior care. Remote patient monitoring allows physicians to keep track of patient data between visits and helps doctors deliver timely and sometimes life-saving interventions.

Benefits of Remote Patient Monitoring

The benefits of remote patient monitoring apply to patients as well as healthcare providers. Some of these include:

  • Better patient-physician engagement: Remote patient monitoring keeps the patient and physician connected even when physically separate.
  • More access to healthcare: There are many people who do not have the convenience of traveling to and from the clinic. Since some devices allow patients to complete basic health testing themselves, healthcare professionals are able to treat more patients.
  • Increased level of education and support: Remote patient monitoring gives patients more information and understanding of their health condition.
  • Patient assurance: Knowing a physician is constantly monitoring them, patients enjoy a peace of mind that potential issues can be identified before serious symptoms surface.
