New Video Explains Remote Patient Monitoring – Home Telehealth

medical monitoring tool

The Office of Connected Care and VHA Telehealth Services have released a new video about VA Remote Patient Monitoring – Home Telehealth (RPM–HT).

VA’s RPM–HT program utilizes innovative mobile and video telehealth technologies to remotely collect Veterans’ biometric data (like blood pressure, weight, and blood glucose) and health information while they are at home. Veterans enrolled in the program collaborate with a VA RPM–HT Care Coordinator who reviews the data. Together, they take steps that promote the Veteran’s wellness and self-care.

The overall goal of VA’s RPM–HT program is to improve Veterans’ access to care while reducing complications, hospitalizations, and clinic or emergency room visits.
