With the US health care system transitioning from a volume to value model, it is a critical time for health care providers to re-evaluate and evolve their services to ensure they meet new model quotas. With new model requirements, health care providers must improve the quality of care, with the goal of dramatically reducing readmission rates, or face penalties.
Of course, one of the key and most revolutionary opportunities for cutting costs and improving the care of the chronically ill to reduce readmission rates is Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM). Set to transform the way patients are cared for in the years ahead, it is forecasted not only to save long term costs within healthcare institutions, but also to save the US government a staggering $700 Billion in health care costs over the next 15-20 years.
As with all disruptive technologies however, there are significant barriers to implementation of RPM which need overcome in order to realize the full benefits. US health systems therefore need to know:
The responsibility of determining the value and planning a strategy to optimize equipment of course, falls to Telehealth, Innovation, Technology and Population Health professionals.
The Remote Patient Monitoring: Implementation & Data Integration Summit 2015 will be the first ever event for health care providers and insurance companies across the US focused exclusively on RPM rather than wider health IT or telemedicine. The agenda has been designed, with two full days of cutting edge insights on RPM, to enable delegates to walk away knowing whether to adopt RPM and how to implement it to maximum effect.
For telehealth and innovation professionals at healthcare systems or insurance providers, it is an un-missable opportunity to learn how to dramatically improve patient care and reduce costs while working within new model quotas in times of great change within US healthcare.
