By leveraging home-based technology and wearable devices, remote patient monitoring efficiently captures vital information related to your overall health and well-being. These devices collect relevant data and securely transmit it to AZZ Medical Associates through an electronic connection. Subsequently, your doctor carefully evaluates the results and makes any required adjustments to your personalized treatment plan. This process ensures that you receive the most effective and tailored care based on your specific health needs.
Although often mentioned in conjunction, it’s crucial to distinguish between remote patient monitoring and telehealth:
Telehealth refers to the utilization of computers or smartphones to electronically transmit medical information. This technology enables you to have virtual appointments with your doctor, providing convenient access to healthcare services from the comfort of your own home.

In contrast, remote patient monitoring involves the use of electronic devices like smartwatches or wearable glucose meters to track and monitor specific aspects of your health. These devices continuously collect data, which is then transmitted to AZZ Medical Associates for analysis. The information gathered through remote patient monitoring plays a vital role in shaping and informing your personalized treatment plan.
At AZZ Medical Associates, our healthcare professionals take a meticulous approach to your care, starting with a thorough review of your medical records, conducting a comprehensive physical examination, and requesting appropriate laboratory tests. If a health condition that can benefit from remote monitoring, such as diabetes, is identified, we create a personalized remote patient monitoring program tailored to your specific treatment goals.
To ensure the most effective monitoring, our providers carefully select a suitable wearable device and provide you with clear instructions on how to use, calibrate, and charge it.
Once your remote patient monitoring device is set up, it diligently collects data, which is then securely transmitted electronically to AZZ Medical Associates. Your provider regularly reviews and analyzes the results to gain valuable insights that can enhance your overall health, boost your energy levels, and improve your quality of life.
As part of your care plan, you will have in-person checkups at AZZ Medical Associates every six months. During these visits, your provider will order laboratory tests and assess your progress, ensuring that your treatment remains on track and aligned with your healthcare goals.
