No. Remote patient monitoring and telehealth are often mentioned together, but they aren’t the same thing:
Telehealth uses computers or smartphones to transmit medical information electronically. It makes it possible to meet with your doctor from the comfort of your own home.
Remote patient monitoring uses electronic devices, like smartwatches or wearable glucose meters, to monitor specific aspects of your health. The devices regularly send data to AZZ Medical Associates, where it’s evaluated and used to guide treatment.
Your AZZ Medical Associates provider reviews your medical records, completes a physical exam, and orders lab tests. If they identify a health problem like diabetes that can benefit from remote monitoring, they create a personalized remote patient monitoring program.
Your provider determines which wearable device will best meet your treatment goals. They explain how to use, calibrate, and charge it.
Once your remote patient monitoring device is set up, it collects data and sends it to AZZ Medical Associates electronically. Your provider analyzes the results regularly and uses them to improve your health, energy levels, and quality of life.
Every six months, you visit AZZ Medical Associates for in-person checkups. At each visit, your provider orders lab tests and evaluates your progress.
