Advanced RPM Webinar

June 24 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Free

With the recent drive for health centers to implement Bluetooth or wireless-enabled self-measured blood pressure devices, health centers are looking for guidance on how to build a successful high-tech remote patient monitoring (RPM) program. In response, this Advanced RPM Webinar will provide first-hand FQHC experience on developing RPM programs that are advanced, innovative, and improve patient care.

Three health centers will provide an overview of their journey to creating a successful RPM program.

  • San Fernando Community Health Center utilizes a whole-person approach and has leveraged the use of RPM tools to better the overall health of uncontrolled diabetic patients.
  • APLA Health & Wellness has assigned CCALAC AmeriCorps Health Fellows to help oversee their RPM program. The health fellows are responsible for enrolling patients and getting them on the app, outreach, follow-ups, as well as creating workflows to help maintain the program.
  • Northeast Valley Health Corporation has created a color-coded alert system for their program in which the number of alerts a patient receives is based on their tier. They will also be expanding their program to enroll high-risk patients that frequent the ER to eventually reduce ER visits.

During this training, participants will be able to:

  • Develop an effective mechanism for enrolling and educating patients on RPM
  • Leverage RPM to care for patients suffering from various conditions, including diabetes and hypertension
  • Understand the role of the care team in a successful RPM program
  • Recognize the importance of RPM data and the most effective way to utilize the data to improve patient outcomes
