RPM for Congestive Heart Failure
Keeping Patients at the Heart of Care
The CDC reports that 6.2 million US residents suffer from heart failure. With 960,000 new heart failure cases annually - CHF is one of the most common reasons those aged 65 and over are hospitalized. Wanda Health RPM for congestive heart failure empowers healthcare professionals to detect and prevent heart failure conditions for those that have a high risk of deterioration to reduce the growing number of hospitalizations from this condition.

Why RPM for Congestive Heart Failure
With a national economic cost of $30.7 billion annually in medical treatments, healthcare, and inability to work, proactive and preventative treatments can support countless patients in managing their health. RPM is an advanced, streamlined, and reliable monitoring approach. It can reduce the likelihood of an emergency event and ultimately lower the volume of potentially preventable congestive heart failure deaths that occur every year.
Remote patient monitoring, or RPM programs, can be a fundamental resource to support patients, vastly improving outcomes and life expectancy and ensuring clinicians, hospitals, and doctors have oversight of how their patients are coping with heart conditions – with regular data flows to track, log, and record changes in well-being, symptoms, and risk.
Actionable insights expediting intervention management
Improves patient understanding and engagement in their treatment plan
Strengthens care coordination and reduces unplanned emergent care needs
Expands revenue potential with new reimbursable services
RPM to Prevent Congestive Heart Failure: Benefits to Patients and Clinicians
Congestive heart failure is a widespread condition; if left untreated, it can result in early death. Still, it is treatable and can be managed with a combination of prescribed medication, lifestyle adaptations, increased levels of activity, and other changes, such as reducing the amount of salt in an individual’s diet. However, we understand that these risks can continue post-treatment.
Regular, ongoing symptom tracking is ideal since this shows a pattern of changes which can be a motivating factor when patients need to make a considerable lifestyle or dietary adjustments and see tangible evidence of how these positive changes are improving their health and risk of worsening heart failure symptoms.
RPM is highly effective and often an ideal solution for healthcare providers servicing large user groups and needing to scale capacity while allowing patients to receive responsive care, when necessary, without requiring the significant resources of in-person monitoring checks or visiting clinics to have symptoms and vital signs assessed.
As a clinical approach, RPM is cost-effective and ensures that people living with heart failure can take back control of their health with support and professional care from their doctor, clinician, or healthcare provider.

Who We Work With
We partner with a broad range of healthcare organizations, including primary care providers who use RPM to manage patient health and tailor care plans to the individual while ensuring patient groups that have suffered or are at risk of suffering congestive hear failure, receive pre-emptive consultations when their symptoms prompt medical intervention.
Our clients include:
POST-ACUTE CARE PROVIDERS, tracing patient recovery post-care to reduce the likelihood of hospital readmission due to heart failure.
CLINICAL TRIALS, implementing RPM to ensure trials are compliant and provide accurate, on-demand data for analysis and interpretation.
DIAGNOSTIC TESTING PROVIDERS, collecting general health information, and augmenting diagnostic services by capturing a broader overview of the patient’s health.
WIDE-SCALE HEALTH MANAGEMENT BODIES oversee the health of the population or an enrolled group with RPM data allowing practitioners to respond quickly to alerts while detecting issues as early as possible.
Wanda offers demonstrations to showcase the benefits of CHF RPM and highlight how RPM systems can be adapted to suit the requirements and priorities of any facility, organization, or department.
Our development team introduces both standard RPM options with proven success rates and can customize your solutions to meet specific deliverables.
We support a wide range of monitoring devices for CHF designed to be non-intrusive and high functioning.
Calculate blood flow and heart rate. Bluetooth-connected cuffs measure arterial motion to log changes, providing insights into how heart function is changing or improving on a daily basis.
Used where congestive heart failure patients also have diabetes, testing blood sugar levels through testing strips. Patients add a small blood droplet to the strip, which is then read by the meter to generate a blood glucose reading.
Allow patients and their clinicians to track changes in weight, where weight gain is a potential sign of worsening congestive heart failure. Weight gain can indicate water retention, a key symptom, and assist with care self-management.
Check for the levels of oxygen in the patient's blood, tracking lung function changes. These clip-on devices are normally attached to a finger and use light waves to help assess blood oxygen and pulse.
Alternative devices may be issued, depending on the overall picture of the patient’s health. Thermometers log body temperature and are given to individuals with potential infections, and ECGs trace heart activity to monitor cardiac conditions, including coronary artery disease or heart arrhythmias.
Some clinicians may also incorporate wearable tech into an RPM service alongside medical devices, using trackers to keep abreast of daily steps, sleep quality, and physical activity levels.
