Health Center Remote Patient Monitoring and Digital Health Session 1: Defining the Problem

HITEQ Learning Collaborative Series

Health centers are interested in implementing remote patient monitoring (RPM), but are struggling to do so efficiently and completely because of policy, social, and technology barriers combined with staffing and time pressure. To support health centers in the strategic implementation of RPM, the HITEQ Center launched a free learning collaborative -- Health Center Remote Patient Monitoring and Digital Health.  This learning collaborative provided participating health centers a series of four structured virtual learning sessions. 


During the series participants engaged with subject matter experts and their colleagues in peer-to-peer learning and discussion. Topics included: defining the problem that RPM could address; determining the appropriate RPM technology solution; set-up and implementation of RPM technology and processes within an organization; and evaluation, sustainability and scaling RPM to ensure efficiency and value. Participants gained information on key considerations for each of these components of implementation of RPM.


Session 1: Defining the Problem

This session focused on establishing the purpose and aim of your RPM program. This included considerations for defining which patients RPM will be utilized for and why, what solution RPM will provide and what more is needed, and defining what success looks like for the RPM program.
