Looking into the deeper understanding of today’s generation of technology, healthcare system capabilities reach a higher level of advancement. This is too far beyond more of people’s expectations. Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is described as modern, accelerated, and more advanced in terms of the healthcare systems.

The virtual and remote care experience of patients in RPM is becoming more and more interesting, and their great knowledge and control of RPM medical devices and applications are highly remarkable. RPM embraces and executes its crucial role in the system, delivering quality service as to what it expects. These are the top 8 key features:

1. Accurate and reliable data harvested from AI-powered RPM medical devices

Ideal RPM technology has the ability to collect, view, process, and interpret critical and physiologic data from the patients holistically using the advanced algorithms that allow the system to evaluate, test, and measure solutions. Trust and confidence with its capacity to record and maintain crucial data securely are truly remarkable, thus avoiding or reducing human errors.

2. High level of big data analysis

RPM can identify, interpret, refine, and analyze complex patterns based on the data sources. Advanced algorithms with rich visualizations through Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) apply analytics and sophisticated detective software application to resolve complex problems. For instance, RPM dashboards for providers show alert levels from low to high-risk status depending on patient-generated health data. If a patient’s blood pressure is outside the normal range, the provider dashboard usually highlights this data in order to alert the provider, making that patient a priority of care delivery.

3. Automation of health measurements and transmissions

Automation or automatic responses give urgency to commands, which saves time and develops a faster conclusion and solution to a particular data being retrieved from the medical devices as sources. It updates automatically, which provides quick responses and avoids some delays. Through its critical, crucial, and advanced algorithms, repetitive tasks are successfully done from time to time.

For instance, if a patient is using a wearable device like smartwatch that tracks heart rate, oxygen level, and respiratory level; these data are transmitted automatically and continuously in real-time to their doctor’s RPM application. In case of other devices like blood pressure monitor, pulse oximeter or weight scale, the patient needs to mount or wear them to take measurements, but the data are still recorded and transmitted to their providers. DrKumo, a leader in Next-Generation RPM, features Autopilot mode, allowing patients to take and send measurements automatically in just one tap on their mobile app.

4. Strong cybersecurity framework

Implementing RPM programs involves multiple stakeholders who disclose private information and locations through applications and biometric devices, which all contribute to potential cybersecurity and privacy risk exposure. One key element of an ideal RPM is having strong cybersecurity framework. RPM technology solution which complies to the cybersecurity and privacy guidance of the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) ensures a safe virtual environment for all stakeholders.

5. Accessible anytime and anywhere

It provides seamless communication and connection between patients and medical providers wherever they are. Using the software application allows the system to track the patient and their health condition at anytime, anywhere in an interactive and more advanced procedure. Immediate access with just one touch brings the clinical information fast and accurately anytime when medical professionals and providers need it. This is beneficial especially for chronically ill, acute or post-operative patients in rural areas or remote locations who don’t have easy access to hospitals.

6. Leveraging clinical operations

Through RPM, healthcare providers can leverage clinical operations as RPM can perform tasks without receiving too many instructions. Providers, care coordinators and family members of the patient can receive instant access to patient data, empowering them to detect potential health deteriorations or costly episode. Clinicians are enabled to respond quickly to unexpected health issues that may arise, allowing them to provide medical intervention when needed. This frees clinicians’ workload and time as they can prioritize patients who need help the most while still keeping an eye on other patients with the help of RPM.

7. Speed

Real-time continuous RPM allows faster evidence-based decisions. RPM technology collects and improves information so easily and in a fast way. It also saves valuable time while analyzing, planning, reporting, and improving the data with integrity. It frees more time and steps advances ahead on the horizon to come up with a better and faster decision. Even if the speed is fast the level of accuracy is still to the maximum performance.

8. Cost-effective

Next-generation RPM obviously cuts the cost of more manpower services who will supposedly execute the tasks. More costs can be saved through the decreasing of the actual operations in clinics and hospitals with the presence of medical professionals, effort and intellectual properties by medical professionals and providers, the distance of travel and in the process of participation, time costs, and access costs.


Remote Patient Monitoring provides a lot of benefits for healthcare providers and patients by giving more opportunities for interaction and communication, improving the patient-provider relationship and patient satisfaction, reducing costs and leveraging clinical workflows. However, not all RPM programs available today are built in the same way. It is very crucial to choose the right partner with all the key features mentioned in this article before inviting your patients to join the RPM program.
