More than half of Americans have at least one chronic condition. At Prima Medicine, in Fairfax and South Riding, Virginia, the dedicated medical team partners with Medsien, specialists in chronic care management (CCM), to offer the remote patient monitoring (RPM) program. Using the most advanced technology, this program allows your providers to monitor your health using a connected device that’s tailored to your condition and medical needs — and you don’t have to leave home for this personalized care. Book your appointment online or call the office to learn more about RPM now.

What is remote patient monitoring (RPM)?

RPM is a program that helps people with chronic conditions protect their health remotely. With this program, you still have regular doctor visits at Prima Medicine. But between those visits, you use a special device specific to your condition to allow remote monitoring of your condition.

 

This device securely works with your medical record to monitor health, detect changes, and alert your clinical care coordinator and doctor if you need medical attention. 

 

Many people who have one or more chronic conditions enroll in the chronic care management (CCM) program at Prima Medicine. The RPM program is complementary to the CCM program, as it gives you an additional tool for effectively managing your health between doctor visits.

What does remote patient monitoring include?

Prima Medicine works with Medsien, the leading provider of chronic care management and remote patient monitoring, to provide the best care for their patients with chronic diseases. Your RPM plan includes: 

 

  • Device specific to your condition (e.g., blood pressure or glucose monitor)
  • A customized health improvement plan 
  • Regular phone check-ins with Medsien to ensure your device’s accuracy
  • Access to Prima Medicine’s dedicated RPM patient phone line 
  • Access to a care coordinator who reaches out to your doctor as needed 

 

The Prima Medicine RPM program offers an effective and convenient way to manage your health. It’s almost like visiting the doctor’s office every day for a blood pressure reading, blood glucose check, or another type of medical tracking — but you don’t need to leave your home. 

 

This valuable medical information securely reaches your clinical coordinator and medical providers automatically, allowing them to take fast action to help you if a problem arises.
