Report: One-Third of Healthcare Providers Use Remote Monitoring

Just how prevalent has remote patient monitoring become?

According to a new report, the details of which were shared today with mHealthWatch, about a third of healthcare providers are now using remote patient monitoring and video-based “Virtual Care” services to improve patient engagement and access to care and more of these programs are likely to come.

That’s the key takeaway from a freshly published survey commissioned by KPMG LLP, the U.S. tax, audit and advisory firm.

“We are seeing a strategic shift in how providers are thinking about investment in digital health capabilities including virtual health platforms, enhanced portals and web interactions as well as scheduling and referral management tools to improve patient experience, increase access to care and provide continuity of care,” said Michael Beaty, a principal at KPMG’s Healthcare & Life Sciences Practice.
