“The future of healthcare is making sure that all patients can receive the types of virtual care that they need with the data they need to support that.”
This week, Drew Schiller, Validic CEO sat down to discuss Validic’s approach to remote patient monitoring (RPM),
The Only Solution for Scale
Traditional RPM is usually a free-standing full-stack program, including:
- A solution living outside the clinical workflow;
- A solution designed for RPM, not for remote care delivery for a health system;
- All of the data live in that standalone solution and not in the EHR or clinical workflow.
Often, these solutions are easy to spin up for pilots but difficult to scale across the system, let alone across multiple departments in the organization. Additionally, traditional RPM programs are used to test small pilots or to manage small cohorts of complex, high-risk patients and no one has truly achieved any scale of consequence across their organization.
“We found that healthcare organizations already have video visit capabilities. They’ve already invested in patient education and care plans and designs. They’ve already built or are working on some kind of patient engagement application. They already have a lot of the things in place that they would need to have in order to provide virtual care. What they’re missing is the remote monitoring component,” said Schiller. “So how do we build the few things that you really need to have to have a world-class remote monitoring solution in your existing clinical infrastructure and workflow that you’ve invested in? That’s what we built.”
When creating a remote patient monitoring platform, our goal was to bring in data into the clinical operations and systems of the healthcare organization. Validic accesses personal health data from over 450 desperate devices from wearables, health apps, and in-home medical devices – like weight scales, blood pressure cuffs, and glucometers – and integrates these data via a single API connection into the provider’s existing electronic health record (EHR), care management platform or other clinical systems
Results from programs utilizing Validic Impact have been proven to benefit patients and providers. In one example, patients managing diabetes who were enrolled in a remote patient monitoring program utilizing Validic Impact saw a decrease in their a1C levels by nearly one point. Across all patients enrolled in Impact-supported programs, the average patient with hypertension moved from stage 2 to normal ranges within 45 days.
