Like many activities in our society nowadays, patient support programs are becoming more and more data-driven.
A PSP is an ideal setting to gather relevant patient data.
Not only do you receive patient data from nurses through physical touchpoints, but also through digital touchpoints and remote monitoring.
By aggregating data from all touchpoints, both physical and remote, healthcare companies can gain reliable and more holistic insights into the well-being of patients enrolled in their PSPs.
Regular monitoring of vital parameters, such as heart rate, respiratory rate, activity, temperature… can significantly improve therapy adherence, giving HCP’s full visibility of their patients’ well-being.
Furthermore, it allows the company that has introduced remote patient monitoring firstly, to determine at which level action has to be triggered and secondly, to work reactively by e.g. having a nurse call or visit the patient.
It is clear that this improves therapy adherence and as a result, the ROI of patient support programs.
