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.

8:00am – 8:10am
Chairperson’s Opening Remarks 

8:10am – 8:50am
Leveraging Remote Patient Monitoring to Achieve Value Based Care and Outcomes
Shifts toward improving outcomes in value‐based care systems have prioritized managing high and rising‐risk patients with chronic disease proactively and efficiently. Remote monitoring with digital and telehealth tools has been shown to lead to proactive engagement. Esse Health implemented a text message‐based remote monitoring program with a single care manager and scaled to over fifteen hundred active Medicare Advantage members at a time. Real‐time automated monitoring allowed the organization to restructure our team by focusing resources to the right members at the right time as staff operated at top‐of‐license and patients were empowered to actively manage their health. Targeted check‐ins provided timely patient health data, the automated feedback loop notified the care manager with opportunities to escalate care and proactively engage the member to coordinate care prior to routine outpatient appointments or eventual ED visits. As operational feasibility and scalability was immediately evident, the next step was to evaluate if the program led to reductions in healthcare utilization and member costs. To mitigate confounding factors, Esse Health evaluated outcomes using Intention to Treat (ITT) per‐member‐day methodology to compare differences in all‐cause ED utilization, inpatient hospitalization, and insurance claims pre and post program enrollment.

Utilizing Remote Monitoring to Address Nursing and Caregiver Shortages
The Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System (VAPAHCS) successfully launched the AvaSys Telesitter Monitoring program in its Medicine-Surgical units in July 2020 with 10 ceiling camera units allocated amongst three medical/surgical units. Due to COVID-19 restrictions limiting in-person support, VAPAHCS is believed to be the first VA to launch the AvaSys program 100% remotely. The talk will explore the primary objectives of implementing the AvaSys program was to help lower and prevent patient fall rates, lower the cost of resources used on patients requiring close observation and to increase the amount of staffing resources available to help with direct patient care.  The program has demonstrated effectiveness in preventing patient falls and has encouraged charge nurses to evaluate incoming patients for their need to be monitored for reasons outside of fall risk, such as for elopement risks, and safety of tubes and lines amongst others. The talk will reveal one unique aspect of the program at VAPAHCS is that most of the monitor technicians have backgrounds as nursing assistants, so when staffing allows,  VAPAHCS will send their monitor technicians out to the nursing units to assist where they can on the floor as well.

An Update on Remote Patient Monitoring Policy and Reimbursement
The rapid growth of remote monitoring technologies offers enormous benefits to the health care community, along with new provider business models and arrangements. When designing a remote monitoring offering, companies should explore the various financial opportunities and compensation models. These arrangements must be not only financially viable but structured to comply with federal and state compliance laws and regulations. This session will focus on the legal and regulatory considerations health care providers should assess when building remote patient monitoring arrangements.

Using Remote Care to Deepen Relationships with Patients, Improve Health Outcomes, and Advance Equity
Creating high-value services means creating care solutions that deepen relationships with patients and improve health outcomes for all people who share a set of unmet needs and/or similar health circumstances.  Remote care is a promising modality to advance the creation of such solutions when deployed intentionally with the specific needs of patients in mind.  This session will discuss insights gleaned from talking to patients with diabetes and depression about living with their condition and using remote care to manage their health.  As organizations develop or revisit their remote care strategies in a post-COVID world, consideration should be given to how well the remote care system addresses unmet needs and improves the outcomes that matter most to patients.

Role of Remote Patient Monitoring in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
In 2018, chronic lower respiratory disease was the fourth leading cause of death in the United States. At this time, about 15.7 million Americans had a diagnosis for COPD. Technology based interventions have been shown to enhance self-management of COPD, including smoking cessation, proper inhaler technique, early recognition of exacerbations, decision-making and taking action, and when to seek help. This talk will discuss how the pharmacist-led Condition Management Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) program was designed with a goal of achieving improved therapeutic outcomes and providing additional clinical coaching. Through remote patient monitoring, patients are coached to monitor, manage, and maintain their conditions. More recently, the Condition Management team has expanded this program to pulmonology use cases. In this discussion, we will review the current trends for remote patient monitoring in the pulmonology field as well as the development of a remote patient monitoring COPD program at Mount Sinai Health System.
