The Atlanta-based health system is finding that a remote patient monitoring program involves a lot more than collecting and using data, and that relationships play a role in seeing success.


Remote patient monitoring


Hospitals and health systems are jumping onto the remote patient monitoring bandwagon these days to boost care management. At the Wellstar Health System, administrators are looking beyond the clinical benefits of RPM and focusing on partnerships.

“We keep the patient at the center,” says Sally Eckford, assistant vice president of virtual health at the Atlanta-based health system. “We always try to keep them in the middle of every decision we make. For us, RPM gives us a chance to create a new relationship.”

The benefits were quickly recognized.
