Can remote patient monitoring solve white coat syndrome?

Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is increasingly becoming an imperative for health systems, with unexpected benefits.  

RPM was growing in popularity long before Covid. It was being used to supplement a strained physician workforce, provide a more continuous connection between providers and patients, and respond to the increased consumer demand for convenient healthcare solutions. 

When the pandemic hit, RPM became a necessity for those who had the infrastructure to deploy it. As safety concerns and social distancing restrictions complicated access to in-person care, RPM was used to fill the gaps, keeping patients safe at home without compromising their care. 

Now with the increased use of RPM, health systems are discovering another benefit — the ability of remote monitoring to accurately capture blood pressure readings compromised by white coat syndrome, and identify and manage potential adverse health outcomes.

Epic is one of the highest consumer-rated EMRs on the market and remains one of the most popular choices for a system of record and scheduling interface. Many healthcare systems rely on the EMR and its features to fulfill multiple roles, and question the value of specific service line enhancements like Babyscripts’ obstetrics-specific Virtual Maternity Care solution.

Yet a recent survey of hospital C-suite leaders showed that, in a group traditionally committed to EMRs, nearly 60% would look outside their EMR vendor to other health IT vendors to provide new tools. Of the same group, most plan to invest in new solutions to augment their EMR. These numbers confirm the reality that the EMR cannot do everything.
