“Specialists need better ways to get closer to patients, especially in these times of isolation. With RPM, we can expand our specialty protocols to better manage complex conditions like IBD without inconveniencing patients.” -Joe Rubinsztain, MD, CEO of ChronWell
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (PRWEB) July 09, 2020
ChronWell, a technology-enabled remote care management company, today announced the addition of its Remote Physiologic Monitoring (RPM) services. The goal of the new program is to closely monitor progress and improve patient adherence to treatment plans, reduce complications and help practices deliver better care while optimizing costs.
ChronWell RPM services will initially focus on patients with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) and IBD (inflammatory bowel disease). Through digital collection tools, including wearable monitoring devices, mobile apps, secure messaging, and surveys, ChronWell’s RPM services will monitor patient health data, assess their chronic condition(s) and offer providers the ability to adjust treatment plans. Health data can include weight change, stool frequency and characteristics, appetite, fever or other indicators for change in disease and symptom progression.
“Specialists need better ways to get closer to patients, especially in these times of isolation,” said Joe Rubinsztain, MD, CEO of ChronWell. “With RPM, we can expand our specialty protocols to better manage complex conditions like IBD without inconveniencing patients.”
When using RPM to monitor patients outside the practice, providers can more appropriately assess risk and decide which patients benefit most from conservative measures or more aggressive interventions, leading to better outcomes, lower system cost and higher patient satisfaction.
ChronWell’s RPM services are part of a comprehensive care management program that also includes Chronic Care Management (CCM), Principal Care Management (PCM) and Transition Care Management (TCM) services.
