Pediatric Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM)
Children’s Health℠ has officially launched a comprehensive pediatric Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) program — the first of its kind in the nation.
The RPM program will allow clinical staff at Children’s Health to monitor patient health status and progress via secure mobile technologies including one-touch video conferencing for virtual visits from the comfort of a patient’s home. The program will help facilitate more advanced, efficient and patient-focused care management, while enhancing patient compliance.
Currently in its pilot stage, the RPM program will consist of 50 pediatric patients of various ages, ethnicities and geographic locations with the first 15 enrolled from the Children’s Health Liver and Renal Transplant Division.
An outstanding team of health care professionals from the Solid Organ Transplant Division alongside Children’s Health experts solely dedicated to telemedicine and innovation joined forces to create this new program to make life better for children.
