Given that the Baby Boomer generation is beginning to enter retirement age, there could be no better time for digital innovations like remote monitoring systems to begin gaining ground in the spheres of medical and eldercare. Such advancements can enable physicians and care managers to extend the scope of their care, so they can continually remain in contact with the individuals in their care and respond directly to any concerning changes in condition.
Recently, the subject of telerehabilitation – or the use of telehealth services to supplement outpatient care – was addressed at the annual meeting of the European Association for Cardiovascular Prevention and Rehabilitation in Rome. According to Family Practice News, Dr. Ewa Piotrowicz of the Institute of Cardiology in Warsaw, Poland, described how telehealth services had improved compliance among patients who were being treated for cardiac issues.
“The advantages of telerehabilitation are the convenience and easy access for elderly patients,” she told the source, adding that it “fosters greater patient independence than hospital-based exercise training, and may reduce patient commute time and costs.”
Remote monitoring and schedule reminders are not just beneficial for medical professionals and their patients. These innovations can also help eldercare managers leverage their existing resources, improve profit margins and expand their services to meet the needs of an ever-growing pool of potential clientele.
