Chapter one: Why Cardiac Patient Engagement & Remote Patient Monitoring?

The healthcare journey can be a confusing and overwhelming process for cardiac patients. Patients are learning complex instructions, managing anxiety, and dealing with stress – often for the first time. Research suggests that over 30% of patients undergoing cardiac procedures or chronic care journeys surgery can experience anxiety. 1

Providers often feel as if they are sending patients into a blackhole, especially after discharge. Although providers hope for patients to have a straightforward recovery, the reality is that:

These challenges have increased as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic; moving forward, hospitals are looking at remote monitoring solutions to decrease the procedure backlog and discharge patients sooner - all while considering patient safety. It is estimated that heart surgeries in the United States decreased by 53% as a result of pandemic-related factors. 4

Cardiac Patient Engagement and Remote Monitoring represents a scalable way for providers to stay connected with cardiac patients pre- and post-discharge, thereby increasing confidence for earlier discharge and improving patient safety. Many hospitals and health systems have successfully implemented Cardiac Patient Engagement and Remote Monitoring, including:

In this white paper, we will walk you through the nuts and bolts of implementing a Cardiac PatientEngagement and Remote Monitoring program to achieve similar results to the organizations above.
