Technology has greatly impacted how the care of patients is delivered, changing the field of nursing dramatically over the last 3 years. The increase in the use of telehealth has allowed for the profession to grow by providing increased flexibility and the demand for new roles. Nurses who chose to immerse themselves in this dynamic environment have become champions in the field and therefore highly sought after due to their ability to adapt and embrace this type of high quality care. Nurses now have the ability to gain greater control over the entirety of the patient experience by having continuous access to platforms and applications used to provide holistic patient care.
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) has transformed nursing as well as the US healthcare system. RPM has shown that it improves patient outcomes by allowing providers to make data driven decisions. Providers are also able to have greater focus on complex cases as they can monitor multiple lower acuity patients at one time. Telehealth has also been vital in allowing more patients to be cared for than ever before. RPM has effectively reduced healthcare disparities by providing access to patients that would have otherwise not had access to care. Patients are also afforded the ability of having greater control over their own care enhancing engagement.
Telehealth has transformed care delivery. Nursing has driven this transformation. The technology is dynamic and the care is exceptional. Better ability to monitor means better outcomes and higher volumes of satisfied, healthy patients.
