We Need to Enhance Remote Monitoring in Healthcare for High-Risk Patients


Reading Time: 3 minutes

Thanks to modern innovations in healthcare, it has never been easier for individuals to monitor their health with traditional remote monitoring devices. Whether predicting complications before they occur or detecting subtle fluctuations in an individual’s vital signs, traditional remote monitoring has been a great asset for those who want optimal health.

Unfortunately, there are limitations to traditional remote patient monitoring that can be avoided by embracing the newest medical technology. These include:

  • A lack of agency when dealing with healthcare professionals
  • Lacking the latest technological advantages
  • Unnecessary anxiety and stress in susceptible patients
  • Unnecessary and expensive emergency hospital visits
  • Compatibility issues between outdated technology, procedures, and protocols

Fortunately, continuous monitoring devices have been developed by Oxitone to address the urgent needs of patients and take advantage of cutting-edge technology not previously available. This includes such technologies as machine-learning, AI, and more. Having the power to actually predict complications can mean the difference between life and death.

In this article, we’ll take a look at how Oxitone’s accurate, wrist-wearable medical devices are the perfect evolution from traditional remote monitoring to modern continuous monitoring.

1) Continuous monitoring empowers patients and caregivers

Oxitone’s continuous monitoring devices enable preemptive measures to be undertaken for the patient’s health in real time. In contrast, traditional remote monitoring cannot provide these details, potentially leading to misdiagnosis, guesswork, and other adverse effects.

By providing greater accuracy and continuous vital data when describing a patient’s symptoms that, for instance, develop over a timeline or occur during certain activities, there’s a great peace of mind for caregivers and patients.

2) Traditional remote monitoring isn’t designed with the latest technology

Integrating the possibilities of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, machine-learning, and other emerging technologies for the best in patient healthcare ensures that patients and caregivers benefit from the best that technology has to offer. Oxitone’s continuous medical devices come with API/ Bluetooth integration. Customers who need to transfer data to their own platform for further analysis can choose one of two methods:

3) Anxiety management for patients is superior with continuous monitoring

With complex chronic diseases under traditional remote monitoring methodologies, patients and their caregivers may be under constant anxiety about the uncertain future. Oxitone’s wearable devices can benefit chronic health problems that are exacerbated by a lack of continuous monitoring.

For example, it has been shown that patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) “perceive potential benefits accruing from using digital health technology in self-management, including improved self-efficacy and perceived support for healthcare professionals to deliver preventative and personalised care” (source: ERS Open Journal). Reduction of overall anxiety and uncertainty for health, avoiding the “negative feedback loop” of worry that comes with health uncertainty, is a clear benefit of using Oxitone’s wearable devices.

4) Continuous monitoring reduces unnecessary hospital visits

Hospital visits increase the likelihood of individuals contracting communicable diseases; continuous monitoring gives the patient a continually-updated monitoring resource that reduces these instances until absolutely necessary. With hospitals and outpatient overwhelmed with COVID-19 cases, continuous monitoring enables a more efficient response that minimizes needless medical emergency visits while accurately diagnosing developing symptoms in real time (and around the clock).

Oxitone’s continuous monitoring platform with one-click real-time clinical continuous data access offers the following data and benefits:

  • Hypoxia Index
  • Sleep data
  • Physiological stress
  • Behavior data
  • Clinical reports
  • Smart notifications
  • Symptoms
  • Accurate disease-specific report and dynamic health status baseline:
    • COVID-19 screening
    • COPD
    • CHF
    • Sleep apnea
    • Occupational health
    • Activity and stress
    • General baseline index

Best of all, Oxitone’s 1000M wearable device generates smart notifications that have five levels of verification before initiating alert. It never disturbs by false or random notifications.

5) Compatibility issues may occur with traditional remote monitoring devices and procedures

Traditional remote monitoring may require constant updates to avoid compatibility issues between healthcare providers, especially for outpatient and hospital care. This can be dangerous for patients who have fluctuating health needs that need continuous monitoring.

Oxitone’s wearable monitoring devices are designed with compliant standards and new protocols that integrate current technologies and emerging technologies. This ensures that the patient’s health is the highest priority and not subject to needless delays.
