Using ROI Models for Scaling Remote Patient Monitoring Under the Affordable Care Act
As the more of the world's population reaches retirement age, chronic disease absorbs the majority of healthcare dollars. With the rise of telemedicine and telehealth technology, telemonitoring has come to the forefront in regard to chronic disease management. Although telemonitoring has proven to provide needed results, many wonder if the returns are worth the costs. This panel discussed the results of a national study conducted by the Center for Technology and Aging and the Center for Connected Health focused on measuring Return on Investment for Remote Patient Monitoring technologies. Using a Web-based ROI Tool for RPM, developed with support from the California HealthCare Foundation, and additional qualitative data, the study team identified a number of common elements, as well as areas of variation, in successful RPM programs.
