ABOUT REMOTE PATIENT MONITORING

Remote Patient Monitoring, also known as self or home monitoring, is a digital service that proactively measures a patient’s health values in their own home.

Today, almost every second resident in Sweden lives with one or more chronic diseases, a group that continues to grow. Through a proactive approach, the healthcare system can notice health deviations for these patients in time. At the same time, people with chronic diseases, such as heart failure and diabetes, can be given support where they feel most safe – at home.

SWEDEN’S VISION FOR E-HEALTH
Through the Government and SKR, Sweden has a vision to be best in the world at using the opportunities offered by e-health and digitalisation in healthcare. Patient Remote Monitoring is a national priority to realize the vision.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
The patient is given access to the monitoring through their healthcare provider, such as a primary or specialist care center. Through Bluetooth connected equipment, such as a blood pressure monitor, the patient can measure their values daily. The results are visible directly in the app for both patient and caregiver. By regularly following up on the results, healthcare professionals can directly offer support in the event of a deviation.

REMOTE PATIENT MONITORING FOR EMPLOYERS
Remote patient monitoring makes it possible for employers to work strategically and preventively against stress-related ill health among staff. The employee can continuously report both actual and perceived health values, which gives employers the opportunity to catch employees who are at risk of suffering from, for example, exhaustion, early on.
