Always-on Patient Care with Remote Patient Monitoring
COVID-19’s impact on healthcare
COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on patients in search of reliable care—especially those in need of life-saving cardiac care. The pandemic continues to exacerbate the challenges already imposed by our current care models. These current models are primarily episodic, reactive, centralized, and technology lagging, and are making arduous processes even more time-consuming and stressful.
Practitioners today also do not have the remote patient monitoring (RPM) tools they need to monitor their patients remotely for signs of COVID-19. They are also without the tools to monitor patient recovery as they recuperate at home and reduce the spread.
With care provider burnout and patient anxiety at an all-time high, healthcare systems around the world are struggling to keep up, and patients are paying the price.
Changes in the way patients are receiving care has driven the need for advanced remote patient monitoring solutions powered by wearable technologies. Myant plans to revolutionize the RPM industry by introducing biosensing garments in numerous form factors that fit perfectly into a patient’s lifestyle and connect them to their practitioners through a digital dashboard. This will allow patients to provide their practitioner with the data to enable personalized, preventative care from the comfort of their home.
Continuous Care through RPM
The current healthcare system is based on episodic, reactive care—not on preventative models that result in better health outcomes for patients. With episodic models significant medical events can be overlooked during gaps in which the patient is not being cared for.
RPM brings a continuous care model in which health care professionals can check in on their patients more often and from a centralized location. This helps the patient receive better care, prevent future ailments, and drive better health outcomes.
A holistic view of a patient’s health and wellbeing
To drive better patient outcomes who need cardiac care, healthcare professionals need to look at patients holistically rather than focus on singular data points in isolation. Wearables, like Skiin biosensing garments, can capture a wide range of health and wellness data points, but few solutions seek to be truly agnostic—syncing third-party devices into a single dashboard.
Myant gives healthcare professionals a full picture of their patients' health with an aggregated view of data collected from Skiin and biometric data collected from other devices (such as smart scales, SPO2 monitors or blood pressure monitors) to drive better outcomes.
Remote communities can get better access to healthcare
Through RPM ability in providing remote care, patients across the nation, especially in rural communities where access to healthcare is limited, can now get the care that they need and deserve. RPM have the ability to make healthcare more accessible and affordable and can catalyse the entire healthcare system.
North American communities have historically had issues in its patient to nurse ratio and this continues to grow till date. There are simply not enough nurses to provide care to the growing number of patients. RPM can help in this problem by centralizing patient monitoring at hospitals. Nurses can get a birds eye view of all patients at hospital facilities, thus enabling lesser nurses to provide care to more patients.
