Remote patient monitoring involves using advanced digital technology to capture your health data. With remote patient monitoring, your MIG provider has your digital health information electronically sent to their clinic for evaluation.
This innovative service allows your MIG provider to track your health without the need for an in-office visit. They use the data to make sure your treatment plan is working. If not, they contact you by phone or email to make adjustments.
Your MIG internal medicine provider determines if you’re a candidate for remote patient monitoring. You may be a candidate if you have multiple chronic health conditions that require chronic care management.
For Medicare patients, chronic care management is a service that includes the non-face-to-face management of chronic health conditions. With remote patient monitoring, your MIG provider can provide the expert care you need and make adjustments to your medications or other health treatments.
They may also consider you a candidate for remote patient monitoring if you have a chronic health condition that needs regular monitoring, but you have a hard time getting to the clinic for in-person care.
Your MIG provider explains in detail how remote patient monitoring works. The specifics of your remote patient monitoring may depend on the health parameters your provider needs to track.
With remote patient monitoring, your MIG provider gives you electronic devices that track various health parameters, such as your blood pressure, blood sugar, or body weight.
You use the device as instructed and electronically transmit the information to their office. They use the data to look for abnormalities and provide appropriate recommendations.
Remote patient monitoring benefits you, your health, and your patient-provider relationship. In addition to saving you time and money, remote patient monitoring provides information about your health while you go about your daily routine.
The information is valuable and helps your MIG provider see how your lifestyle affects your health. They use this information to offer personalized recommendations and instructions.
The data and recommendations ultimately lead to better overall health outcomes. Remote patient monitoring also gives you an opportunity to take control of your health.
