The importance of RPM for patients living with heart failure
Heart Failure Awareness Week is an important time for healthcare professionals to raise awareness about heart failure and its impact on patients and their families. As care providers, you play a critical role in diagnosing, treating, and managing heart failure. With advances in technology, innovative tools are now available to help you monitor your patients’ heart health from afar. By leveraging the devices that Qardio provides, you can remotely assist your patients suffering from heart failure and improve their quality of life.
One of the most helpful devices in monitoring your patients suffering from heart failure is the QardioArm, a wearable blood pressure monitor that is easy to use and provides accurate readings. When paired with the QardioMD RPM platform (QardioDirect), you can remotely monitor your patients’ heart health and receive real-time data on important metrics.
From our case study Remote BP monitor aids in early irregular heartbeat detection, George Fahnbulleh, the practice administrator at Gold Canyon Internal Medicine in Arizona, had this to say about the QardioMD Platform: “The platform allows us to get a good picture of our patient’s overall health and we can view their medication timeline against how their blood pressure is fluctuating. This integration allows us to address the problem better and decide how to change their treatment promptly.”
It allows you to track trends and patterns in data over time. This information can help identify potential problems early and respond quickly, reducing the risk of complications and hospital readmissions. QardioDirect provides patients an easy way to track and share their progress, improving communication and collaboration between doctor and patient. For doctors, the platform offers tools to manage and organize patient data, making it easier to provide care and treatment. The platform integrates with electronic health record (EHR) systems, allowing for the seamless transfer of patient data and reducing the risk of errors or missing information.
