JAMA Network: Hospitalization Outcomes Among Patients With COVID-19 Undergoing Remote Monitoring

A study found that implementing a remote patient monitoring (RPM) program led to positive outcomes for COVID-19 patients, including lower hospitalizations, intensive care use, and lengths of stay. Researchers performed a cohort study at Froedtert and Medical College of Wisconsin Health Network, an academic health system in Wisconsin. The goal of the study was to gain insight into the effectiveness of RPM by using measurements like patient outcomes and hospitalization rates. The study found that remotely monitored patients averaged a 4.44-day length of stay, shorter than the 7.14-day average experienced by those not being monitored. Additionally, 15 monitored patients were admitted to the intensive care unit as opposed to 44 unmonitored patients. For additional coverage, see mHealth Intelligence and Wisconsin Public Radio.
