Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) continues to grow, accelerated in the past year by COVID-19.
- 50% of American adults had a medical care appointment switched from in-person to telehealth via over the phone or video conferencing in the past year1.
- In addition to telehealth, medical caregivers are implementing the use of remote devices, such as wearables and implants, to monitor their patients’ condition.
- In 2016, 7 million patients2 used some sort of remote device to monitor their health. In 2020, that number jumped to over 23 million. The number of patients implementing remote health monitoring tools is expected to increase to 30 million by 20243.
With remote monitoring devices becoming more common, MSI conducted a study to better understand people’s receptiveness to receiving remote care via these devices.
- 300 respondents age 18 or older from across the US were interviewed to assess their view towards remote health monitoring, the likelihood of using remote monitoring for specific health indicators, and preference towards wearable or implanted devices
Respondents were also asked about perceptions of remote health monitoring:
- Concerns with the use of remote monitoring devices
- Benefits associated with remote monitoring devices
