RPM allows your medical provider to monitor your health from a distance. It’s a form of telehealth. Instead of going to an office to provide health data, you use devices to track the data at home and then transmit it to your health care provider.
RPM gives your provider an opportunity to monitor your health while you go about your usual routine, giving them the ability to adjust your treatment plan based on your usual activities versus you having to change your routine to match your treatment plan.
AM Diabetes Centers of America is a diabetes care management practice dedicated to providing comprehensive and personalized care for those living with or affected by diabetes or prediabetes. They use RPM to develop personalized plans that work for your life.
The team at AM Diabetes Centers of America determines what devices you need for RPM.
For most patients, the team recommends at-home blood glucose monitoring devices. These devices store your blood glucose information, which you can upload to an app on your smartphone and transmit electronically from your computer to AM Diabetes Centers of America.
The team may also ask you to track your blood pressure at home. Having diabetes increases your risk of developing high blood pressure and at-home monitoring may provide a more accurate picture of your readings than what they get at the office.
AM Diabetes Centers of America may also ask you to monitor your weight.
