Remote Patient Monitoring has gained critical traction over the past year as health systems look to push more care out of the hospital and into the home. But what are providers learning as they launch and scale RPM programs, and how has reimbursement affected sustainability?

This two-day virtual event will address the successes and challenges of this fast-growing platform for care, discussing everything from CMS reimbursement to the growing ‘Hospital at Home’ strategy to the struggle to integrate home healthcare services into these programs. We’ll hear from providers large and small about how they’ve launched and expanded RPM programs and review the latest research and studies on how these programs are improving clinical outcomes and reducing costs.
Agenda

Using RPM to Support the Shift from Chronic Disease Management to Prevention 
Tuesday, July 12th at 11:00 AM ET

Perhaps the most widespread use of RPM is to enhance chronic disease management, enabling clinicians to track patient outcomes in real-time and adjust treatment accordingly. But can it be used to push past management and help prevent chronic conditions altogether? This panel discussion will explore how RPM can help bolster chronic disease management and aid the early detection and prevention of chronic diseases. Further, panelists will discuss the challenges of RPM-enabled chronic care programs and the keys to success.

Hospital at Home programs offer a new frontier for RPM—and for bedside nurses who are the driving force of the care model. In light of ongoing staffing challenges, Hospital at Home programs offer new opportunities for nurses, enabling meaningful interactions with patients and high-quality care delivery, while breathing new life into their careers. But defining the roles, recruiting, and training for these brand new, tech-enabled programs can be a challenge for program leaders. Learn what has worked for these successful Hospital at Home teams. 
How RPM Can Propel Providers Into a New Era of Connected Care  
Wednesday, July 13th at 12:30 PM ET
 
With recent technological advances and growing clinical backing, providers are increasingly exploring innovative ways to use RPM to improve patient outcomes. Dr. Vivian Reyes, regional medical director of strategic hospital initiatives, The Permanente Medical Group, and national physician lead for Kaiser Permanente Care at Home, The Permanente Federation, will deliver a keynote address on key opportunities in the RPM arena and how providers can leverage RPM to meet their patient care goals.  

Addressing Digital Health Literacy Issues Within Vulnerable Populations   
Wednesday, July 13th at 2:00 PM ET
 
While RPM’s value as a tool to improve patient outcomes and expand access to care is clear, digital health literacy can be a significant barrier. RPM requires patients to have access to various technologies, from connected scales to smart thermometers, as well as the knowledge of how to use them. This panel will discuss how providers can identify digital health literacy challenges among the populations they serve, target initiatives to alleviate these hurdles, and ensure equitable access to the benefits of RPM.
