Remote Patient Monitoring 101 - Asking the right questions

When evaluating monitoring solutions for your company, asking the right questions is key. CHS resources can help with the right questions, and ensure you get accurate information. Always ask the manufacturers you're considering:

  • How does the patient device transmit the data?
The lower prices of cable provider's phone services as well as more people eliminating land lines all together, counting on the presence an analog phone line is no longer a sure thing.  Many manufacturers provide a cellular option, but did you know the US has two major cell technologies (CDMA and GSM) provided by differing providers (AT&T, Verizon, etc.)?  Make sure you ask which carrier they use and find out how good the coverage is in your service area before you make a commitment.  Also, cellular options usually carry an additional monthly charge - ensure you get all the facts.
  • Help me understand how your solution complies with HIPAA?
Just about all providers claim "HIPAA compliance", but be sure you probe further.  Ask how they comply and how the new HITECH ACT has affected their compliance.
  • What are the "hidden costs"?
Want an interface, reporting engine or additional system users?  Many times during the sales process extra fees like these get "forgotten".  Ask your representative to give you the complete costs with all available options up front, then you determine which options are best for you.
