Patient Monitoring Q&A

What is remote patient monitoring?

Remote patient monitoring is one of the health services available at Cary Cardiology, P.A. Using advanced medical tools and technology, remote patient monitoring gives the team the ability to monitor various health conditions from a distance.

 

Remote patient monitoring provides vital health data to the team, allowing them to make quick adjustments to your treatment plan while improving your health and well-being.

What conditions benefit from remote patient monitoring?

There are numerous chronic health conditions that might benefit from remote patient monitoring. The team may recommend this service if you have:

 

  • An arrhythmia
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Heart palpitations
  • Frequent fainting episodes

 

For patients with heart palpitations or arrhythmias, the team may recommend loop recorder implantation. This device goes under the skin in your chest, recording and transmitting your heart’s electrical activity to the team. 

 

Remote patient monitoring may also involve tracking other health conditions that affect heart health, like diabetes. The team may request that you transmit your home blood glucose measurements electronically to the office so they can fully understand your overall health and needs. 

Am I a candidate for remote patient monitoring?

The Cary Cardiology, P.A., team determines if you’re a candidate for remote patient monitoring during a consultation. They may recommend the service if they want to track the effectiveness of your current treatment plan, or need more information about your health to determine the best care.

 

They may also recommend remote patient monitoring for chronic care management. If you have a chronic health condition, you may need to go to the office regularly for monitoring, treatment, and medication refills. But, with the use of remote devices and technology, you may not have to come to the office as often, saving you time and money.

How does remote patient monitoring work?

The specifics of your remote patient monitoring depend on your health needs, the information the team wants to track, and the types of devices you have. Your provider explains in detail how to use your device and transmit the information to the office.

 

The Cary Cardiology, P.A., team reviews the data and contacts you when they need to make changes or want you to come in for additional testing and care. Remote patient monitoring makes it convenient for you and your provider to track your health and well-being.
