Remote Patient Monitoring (RMEDE™)

RMEDE™ Logo (300x152)

The Realtime Medical Electronic Data Exchange System (RMEDE™), developed by the Center for Strategic Health Innovation (CSHI), is a secure, web-based, life-state management system that enables in-home monitoring of patients with chronic disease, as well as interventional health informatics reporting.

The RMEDE™ Home Monitoring Program is used to track physiological parameters of patients diagnosed with chronic diseases and report non-compliant ranges to healthcare providers in order to improve clinical outcomes. Benefits include:

  • Innovative Interactive Voice Response (IVR) Technology
  • Reduced Emergency Department Visits
  • Shortened Inpatient Stays
  • Consistent EHR of Patient Admissions, Discharges, and Transfers (ADT) Among Clinics and Providers
  • Minimized Number of Avoidable Hospital Admissions
  • Improved Compliance with Provider Plan of Care
  • Earlier Intervention for Uncontrolled Disease
  • Increased Patient Satisfaction
▼   In-Home Biomonitoring System for Rurally-Based Patients

CSHI continues to enhance and support the RMEDE™ program. There are currently over 1,000 active Medicaid Pt 1st patients participating in our in-home biomonitoring project.

Features of this system include:

  • Uses Interactive Voice Response (IVR) technology
  • Detects threshold violation readings for blood pressure, blood glucose and weight
  • Generates threshold violation reports in real time and/or periodic graphs
  • Provides link to Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) Biomonitoring Nurse for patients enrolled in the Medicaid Patient 1st primary care case management (PCCM) program
  • Monitors Congestive Heart Failure, Hypertension, Diabetes, and Maternity Care for Medicaid Patient 1st patients
▼   How the Program Works

Referral: ADPH Biomonitoring Nurse receives referral and provider-set data limits for the monitoring measures

Enrollment: ADPH Biomonitoring Nurse contacts the patient to set up a home visit to place equipment and provide instruction
(CSHI provides a speaker telephone, blood pressure monitor and scale as needed; patients use their own glucometer and strips)

Alerts: Readings outside of provider-set parameters produce a threshold violation and an alert is automatically e-mailed from RMEDE™ to the ADPH Biomonitoring Nurse. The nurse then follows up as needed; making contact with the patient, evaluating what action is needed and providing education, reassurance and/or referral. Reports can be faxed to the provider.

Reports: Periodic graph reports of patient data are sent to the Provider Ongoing Contact; ADPH Biomonitoring Nurse makes contact with patient at least monthly

Renewal: Provider orders are renewed yearly
