RPM for Primary Care

Improving Primary Care Delivery

Remote patient monitoring (RPM) represents a considerable shift in primary care services. It allows providers to improve revenues generated by their clinics and facilities, augment preventative care standards, and extract insights to inform how they treat and support their patients.


Wanda Health explores the applications of advanced, innovative RPM programs in primary care services and the benefits from a medical, cost-efficiency, and patient perspective.

Why RPM for Primary Care?

Primary care is typically the first point of contact for a patient engaging with the healthcare system. It is responsible in most cases for initial patient assessments and diagnosis of chronic diseases and conditions such as diabetes, congestive heart failure (CHF), and hypertension.

Where a clinician believes a patient is at risk of developing a condition or requires ongoing monitoring to ensure a disease does not worsen, RPM offers a streamlined way to track their health metrics between appointments.

The real-time nature of RPM data monitoring can transform patient outcomes, how patients with progressing or chronic diseases consume education, and provide a platform for better self-management.

The cost-savings of using RPM are considerable across the healthcare system but predominantly in primary care services. Some recent studies have also analyzed the environmental cost impacts of transitioning ongoing chronic condition monitoring to RPM. Analysts found that this approach can eliminate over 53.5 million miles of travel per year, easing patient cost pressures and delivering economic benefits regarding reduced lost productivity.

Essentially, RPM is accessible and collates physician time, whereby data submitted that is of concern is actioned immediately. However, patient measurements that show positive improvements or a stable condition do not extract clinical time and thus free up resources to be used where the need is greatest.

The Benefits of Using Wanda RPM in Primary Care Services 

One of the many advantages of RPM is that medical professionals have better opportunities to detect diseases early. Chronic conditions that are identified and treated early have less likelihood of escalation, which reduces the total amount of clinical time required per patient and produces better patient outcomes.


For Patients

Patients enrolled in RPM programs have proven better able to self-manage their care, partly because they have direct access to their readings and can see how their metrics change over time through the Wanda Health portal.

Knowing that a primary care team regularly monitors data improves motivation and encouragement to comply with medication and lifestyle recommendations and enhances adherence to care plans.

Another benefit from a patient-centric perspective is that RPM has a significant chance of early detection or disease prevention. The World Health Organization (WHO) has reported that a minimum of 80% of cases of diabetes, stroke, and premature heart disease can be avoided with sufficient preventative medical care.

RPM mitigates the likelihood that a patient will need to visit an emergency room and provides the data for physicians to see how the symptoms of an at-risk patient are developing, supporting more targeted and preventative care.

For Healthcare Organizations

Primary care services commonly experience challenges around resource and practitioner availability and the costs of treating growing patient cohorts. Introducing RPM programs can impact the speed and accuracy with which primary care medical services identify concerns. Using at-home RPM devices also reduces the need for frequent in-person consultations while ensuring treatment plans are optimized for the individual.

Further, claims submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) for RPM service delivery have increased by 1,300% in the last four years, with an expanding range of CPT codes that primary care services can log to improve revenues.

Utilizing the opportunities RPM presents allows healthcare practices to augment their service delivery, care for larger patient groups without additional resources, and provide an additional revenue stream, improving patient outcomes and access to primary care.

Who Else Do Work With?

While we have looked here at the applications of RPM within primary care settings, Wanda Health collaborates with a broad range of partners, including research centers, clinical trials, and specialty healthcare service providers. Current clients include organizations engaged in:

  • Primary care healthcare - including clinics, practices, and programs focused on diagnosing and managing conditions such as diabetes, COPD, and CHF.


  • Post-acute care - providers such as home health and community healthcare organizations, public sector post-acute care teams, and clinical services looking to improve successful patient discharges and reduce readmissions.


  • Population health management organizations - using RPM data to analyze wider-scope data and evaluate the potential ways to incorporate predictive analysis to inform healthcare policies.


  • Diagnostic testing centers - conducting research into pharmaceutical protocols or treatments to address specific diseases.

Any healthcare providers or services are welcome to get in touch to learn more about our turnkey RPM solutions and devices.

Our Devices

We support a wide range of monitoring devices for CHF designed to be non-intrusive and high functioning.


 iBlood Remote Pressure Monitor: Blood pressure RPM kits come complete with an adjustable cuff and unit – with one-touch button functionality for patients with hypertension or any conditions affecting their blood pressure to take regular, accurate readings.



Glucometers are widely used to manage patients with type 1 and 2 diabetes and to track blood sugar data where a patient presents with another condition, such as kidney dysfunction.


Primary care providers use body weight scales to manage the care for patients with obesity and linked diseases, including conditions related to heart health, diabetes, and poor nutrition.


iPulseOx Remote Oxygen Monitor: These user-friendly devices measure oxygen saturation and pulse and monitor patients with respiratory conditions, including asthma, pneumonia, COPD, heart failure, and other lung function-related diseases. 

Each device works intuitively and transmits readings directly to the prescribing primary care service or their nominated RPM monitoring partner through secure cellular transmissions.
