A variety of technologies can be used in RPM. Examples of wearables include activity monitors, monitors that can provide information about a patient fall or patient location, and continuous glucose monitors (CGM) that are enabled to send the data to providers. Other devices for data collection during RPM can include wirelessly connected devices such as scales, blood glucose monitors, blood pressure monitors, and thermometers.
Data can be transmitted to providers via smartphone apps and online databases. To provide feedback to patients, email, and patient portals are options.
