Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM): Advantages and Challenges of Implementation of TeleMedicine Systems in a Community Health Care Setting

Project Location/Site: Universal Community Health Clinic, Los Angeles, CA
Key Outcomes:
Current data evaluation seems to show that many patients are not utilizing the RPM as much as would prove useful for the enrolled patients. A number of challenging factors proved influential in these results: limited staff for patient enrollment; difficulty of use of iHealth devices assistance in measurement of vitals and other objective patient information; patient understanding of device instructions; access to high speed internet; and chosen patient demographic for TytoCare
