RPM for Chronic Disease

From Crisis Intervention to Prevention 

Chronic diseases, characterized by conditions that last a year or longer, include cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, the most prevalent causes of disability and death across the US. The National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion reports that six in ten adults have a chronic disease, and 40% have two or more conditions.

 

Wanda Health chronic disease RPM solutions are a fantastic way for practitioners to deliver high-quality, personalized chronic disease management and monitoring, shifting from crisis intervention to prevention and resulting in reduced hospital admissions and better outcomes for patients across this broad treatment category.

Why RPM for Chronic Disease?

There is no doubt that the volume, complexity, and multitude of chronic diseases present in the population present a challenge for the medical community, with a need to be responsive to emergencies while tracking patient progress and providing tailored treatment plans and advice on beneficial lifestyle changes.

 

As the leading cost driver contributing to the US economic spending of $4.1 trillion every year on healthcare, chronic diseases, once well managed at scale, can effectively cut the pressures on practitioner time, the costs of treatments and admissions, and the likelihood of illness progressing at a rapid rate.

 

Wanda Health RPM is effective since it can be deployed concurrently to any number of patients, with specific, accurate symptom and vital sign monitoring. It allows for detailed care management and swift responses when RPM device metrics indicate a cause for concern.

The Benefits of Using RPM for Chronic Disease Management

Alongside medications and treatments, most chronic diseases can be well managed by addressing risk behaviors contributing to disease progression. Most chronic diseases are accompanied by lifestyle factors such as:

 

  • Smoking and tobacco use

  • Poor quality nutrition

  • Lack of physical activity

  • Use of alcohol and other substances

 

Wanda Health RPM for chronic disease management is accessible, affordable, and user-friendly, providing patients with detailed insights into how their condition responds or improves when following practitioner advice about changes to diet and physical activity, creating better engagement. 

 

Patients can access their dashboard through our intuitive virtual care platform and take active control of their health and wellness without the need to visit their clinician multiple times per month to provide data for analysis.

 

The Veterans Association, with a large proportion of members with at least one chronic disease, reported that introducing RPM improved patient’s life quality, reduced the length of hospital stays by 25%, and resulted in 19% fewer admissions.

Who We Work With

Wanda Health works with a range of partners, organizations, and care providers as RPM becomes more broadly used across public and private sector medicine, research, and diagnostics.

 

We often consult with new clients keen to find ways to expand capacity, better manage the care of diverse patient groups, and deliver more targeted and responsive treatment plans without stretching resources. Partners include:

 

  • Primary care groups, including hospitals, clinics, doctors, and specialist centers, introducing RPM to cater to the needs of their patient populations and deliver more cost-effective care with improved revenues.

  • Healthcare teams offering post-operative and post-treatment support for patients, ensuring proactive monitoring to prevent avoidable readmissions and improving long-term outcomes for patient groups with one or more chronic diseases.

  • Researchers and analysts investigating ways to strategically manage the economic cost of chronic disease and discovering new ways to deliver public health information and education to inform at-risk demographics of methods of controlling or preventing disease.

  • Diagnostics and testing laboratories and facilities using RPM to trace patient responses to varied treatments, medications, and protocols.

 

The high levels of accuracy, automated data collection, and logging allow practitioners and clinicians to clearly oversee how patient metrics have changed and which interventions have the most positive results.

 

Interested partners are welcome to get in touch to schedule a complimentary demonstration to show how RPM will work to meet their objectives and align with patient requirements and access needs.

Managing Chronic Conditions with Wanda RPM Devices

The catalog of RPM devices available from Wanda Health is supported by advanced features and functionality, allowing both medical professionals and the patients they serve to share real-time data and adjust treatments or medications quickly, when necessary, by identifying red flags or measurements that indicate a change in their condition.

BLOOD PRESSURE CUFFS 

Often dubbed the silent killer, hypertension, or high blood pressure, can contribute to the escalation of chronic diseases or cause hypertension in patients presenting with other conditions. Measuring blood pressure can avoid heart failure, kidney failure, and stroke by determining when metrics fall outside of the healthy range. Read more about RPM for hypertension.

DIGITAL WEIGHTING SCALES

Multiple chronic diseases are impacted by obesity and increased fatty tissue, including hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, sleep apnea, and some types of cancer. Tracking weight and body composition is essential for practitioners to see how this lifestyle factor affects their patient’s well-being.

PULSE OXIMETERS 

Medical professionals track and log blood oxygen levels for patients with chronic illnesses related to their lungs and breathing, including asthma, emphysema, and COPD. Monitoring patient oximeter readings can also reduce the risk of hypoxia and ensure treatment plans have a positive impact. Read more about RPM for COPD.

GLUCOMETERS AND TESTING KITS

Type 2 diabetes is one of the most common chronic conditions, affecting over 37 million American adults. Monitoring blood sugar is also vital for clinicians treating patients or populations with thyroid disease, coeliac disease, polycystic ovary syndrome, and muscular conditions. Read more about RPM for diabetes.

Given the number of people living with chronic diseases, and the potential for one patient to have two or more conditions, practitioners often assign one patient one, two or more RPM devices, ensuring they have a complete overview of patient health, the effectiveness of medications prescribed, and how variations in one reading relate to another.

 

They can also use RPM devices to help support patients with chronic diseases to avoid or lessen the risk of contracting secondary conditions such as influenza, COVID-19, and pneumonia, which could present a fatality risk.
