Remote monitoring is the remote exchange of physiological data between a patient at home and medical staff to monitor their disease/condition. It includes (amongst other things) a home unit to measure and monitor temperature, blood pressure and other vital signs for clinical review at a remote location (for example a hospital site or GP practice) using wireless technology. Remote monitoring allows clinicians to deliver healthcare differently for the benefit of patients and healthcare staff. It supports patients to learn, understand and self-manage their condition. It can have information and advice for the patient and individualised care plans set up.
