Remote Patient Monitoring Toolkit

Role

Responsible for Patient Management

Overview

RN will meet with RPM patients in the patient home or in the clinic to enroll and educate the patient and check that the devices are working properly. Identify barriers to a patient taking readings or to the successful transmission of RPM data. The RPM nurse performs frequent virtual outreach with the patients to help patients continually learn about their disease management/decision-making. Review patient medications. The RN enrollment visit may also be conducted at a clinic office visit if the patient is not agreeable to a home visit, if RPM staffing time is limited, or if concerns over staff safety at a home visit. Enrolling a patient into RPM requires assessment and education within the RN Scope of Practice to make sure a patient takes accurate readings and that patients understand the readings and monitoring parameters. Provide Patient Education.
