About the Conference

As the nation continues to rapidly evolve with improved healthcare delivery and patient outcomes, Remote Patient Monitoring is viewed as a critical component in this effort. RPM provides greater access to healthcare, better patient outcomes while reducing costs. A recent study revealed that the United States RPM market is projected to exceed 7,338.92 million by 2028. RPM is able to provide access to continuous patient care at the right place and time, 24/7, and patients enjoy its convenience and accessibility. Patient care can now be managed outside of the hospital setting, and hospital ER visits and readmissions are reduced.

This conference will examine key and emerging trends in Remote Patient Monitoring and home care management, updates on reimbursement, improved patient outcomes and reduced spending costs.

Keynote:  Creating a Better Path Forward: Hybrid Care Delivery

The future of healthcare is a hybrid care delivery system that combines in-person and virtual care – to bring quality care into the home, improve the patient and provider experience, and eliminate health disparities. With this new reality also come opportunities for remote patient monitoring, asynchronous technologies and at-home testing. For an overburdened and under-resourced health system, RPM solves for limited access to care, creates increased efficiencies and cost savings, and results in better patient outcomes. Ann Mond Johnson, CEO of the ATA, describes how telehealth is creating a better path forward.

Expanding Access to Critical Care For Rural Hospitals Utilizing RPM

Many rural communities desire the development of a top-tier intensive care unit (ICU) at their local hospital to deliver the highest level of care for their patient population and to comply with Leap Frog guidelines. Unfortunately, the specialist physicians and nurses needed to provide this care are often unavailable or prohibitively expensive for rural communities to attract and retain. This session will discuss how recent advances in healthcare technology have made it possible to remotely monitor patients in intensive care settings with a level of intensity and focus that often exceeds what can be delivered in those local inpatient settings. With the use of real time analytics and audio/video tools, a remote tele-ICU program is able to significantly enhance patient outcomes in any ICU setting, making it possible for rural hospitals to connect their existing physician and nurse resources to experienced critical care specialists, on a “real time” basis, anywhere in the world.
