For the 86th episode of the Healthcare IT Podcast, we’re asking the question, Is RPM (remote patient monitoring) overrated? Everyone seems to be talking about remote patient monitoring. This isn’t a huge surprise given all the move to remote that’s happened during COVID, but we wondered if all this talk of RPM is overrated. Certainly we’ve seen an explosion of investment in remote patient monitoring companies. Our list of remote patient monitoring companies continues to grow. Although, is this investment matching the reality of what healthcare organizations need and want or is it just building hype? That’s the main topic of discussion on this episode. If you want to learn how we define the remote patient monitoring space and what we find interesting and not so interesting about it, check out the episode below.

Here’s a preview of the questions and topics we discuss in this episode:

  • What does RPM include?
  • Is RPM Overrated?
  • Are there any RPM devices that stand out in your mind?
  • What has to happen to really drive more adoption/acceptance of RPM?
