How patient monitoring improves the ROI of Patient Support Programs?

Patient support programs (PSPs) play a crucial role in improving treatment outcomes and patients’ quality of life.
To optimize PSPs, pharmaceutical companies must gather data and gain critical insights into patient therapy adherence and patient’s health.

Remote monitoring has emerged as an innovative solution that enables healthcare professionals (HCPs) to collect patient data
non-intrusively and improve patient follow-up.

What is remote monitoring?

Remote monitoring is a technology-enabled process that allows healthcare professionals to monitor patients’ health status and treatment adherence from a remote location. It involves using devices such as sensors, wearables, or mobile apps to collect patient data, such as vital signs, medication adherence, and symptoms.

This information is transmitted to healthcare professionals who can monitor the data remotely and provide timely interventions, personalized care or adjustments to the treatment plan if needed.

Effect of patient monitoring and data gathering on PSPs

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.
