Why Does It Take a Pandemic to Realize the Value of Remote Patient Monitoring?

Sponsored by Maxim Integrated

The headlines that COVID-19 are bringing to us each day serve to highlight the promise of remote patient monitoring. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 6 in 10 American adults live with at least one chronic disease and 4 in 10 adults have two or more. The time is now to embrace and accelerate the deployment of remote patient monitoring to ensure that chronic conditions are managed in a way that can improve outcomes and reduce the need for regular healthcare facility visits.
