“Organizational readiness is key for any RPM program and is established by high-level engagement from executive leadership, the HIS team, and clinical stakeholders to help drive processes and workflows and achieve strong patient outcomes and financial goals. Choosing the right vendor is paramount to your success.” – Kim Johnson, DNP, Director of Clinical Consultants, Vivify Health (part of Optum)
3 Crucial Pillars for a successful RPM Program
Hospitals and health systems that have successfully implemented the RPM program transformed themselves by evolving across crucial pillars:
Leadership Team selection
Team leadership is a crucial step in building a strong RPM program and should have representation across many departments within your organization.
Process, Policies & Procedure
Like your on-site treatment programs, remote programs should leverage similar processes, policies and procedures to ensure optimal compliance and outcomes.
Organization Reporting & Meeting
It is important to proactively plan and retrospectively study your remote programs to fine- tune outcomes on a continual basis.
Case Study: Deaconess Re-Starts RPM Program by Rethinking Participants
Unlocking the Potential of RPM
Deaconess Health System, an Evansville, Indiana-based organization that includes 11 hospitals with 900+ beds, 96 locations, its own ACO, and a large 538-provider multispecialty group serving patients in 26 mostly rural counties in Southwestern Indiana, Southeastern Illinois, and Western Kentucky, was an early adopter of RPM. The health system launched its first RPM program in 2010, but by 2018 the legacy program rarely was used because it had not produced the expected results.
Telehealth and RPM have the potential to positively impact the quality of care and patient satisfaction with that care while reducing its cost. It is, in many ways, one of the most important gateways to achieving true value-based care. Download the “Keys to Building a Successful Remote Patient Monitoring.“
