Remote Patient Monitoring
Telemedicine, remote patient monitoring go hand in hand in the world of HIT. Telemedicine although becoming more commonplace faces some serious legal hurdles from the Federal Trade Commission and the Food and Drug Administration as well as established regulatory state medical boards. However the battle is on and the current focus on cost containment, improving outcomes coupled with reducing hospital admissions will most likely overcome these obstacles.
Remote monitoring has been made possible by advances in wireless technology. Monitoring vital signs from a patient at home reduces the necessity of a hospitalization or a stay in a SNF. It will take some effort to make this sea-change to make it a standard of care.
The following seminar hopes to address these issues.
The Remote Monitoring, Implementation and Data Integration Summit 2015 Los Angeles California will be held 23-24 June 2015.
