Remote Monitoring Study

In the following “MSI Insights That Matter Podcast Series” interview, Mike Highberger, Senior Vice President at MSI International; and Brian Ebarvia, Director, Research Management at MSI International, analyze the outcomes of the recent “American’s Perceptions of Remote Monitoring in Health” Study

MSI International recently released its “American’s Perceptions of Remote Monitoring in Health” study, which gained insights into how Americans feel about the remote monitoring of their health. It also provides valuable data for biotech and healthcare companies looking to expand their footprints into this emerging arena.

And, the big takeaway is that Americans view remote health in a positive light. The study found that 4 out of 5 of Americans are in favor of Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM), and nearly one-half are very favorable towards incorporating it into their overall medical care.

But there’s much more to this study, which is why we are speaking with Mike Highberger, Senior Vice President at MSI; and Brian Ebarvia, Director, Research Management at MSI International, who break down the results of this study for us further.
