Austin Virtual Home Health Checks Available from Victory Medical
Victory Medical, a medical clinic located at 4303 Victory Dr, Austin, TX 78704, is offering remote patient monitoring (RPM), which is a Medicare covered service. RPM offers a simple way for a doctor to monitor patients with health conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure, without the patient having to leave home. More information about this service can be found here: https://victorymed.com/remote-patient-monitoring/.
For the RPM service, after a remote consultation with an RPM specialist at Victory Medical, monitoring devices are sent to the home of the patient. With these at-home devices, it is possible to easily take glucose and blood pressure readings. The readings are automatically transmitted to the patient’s dedicated healthcare professionals who are monitoring any changes or potential problems. In the event that intervention or treatment is required for the patient, it can usually be implemented without the patient having to personally visit the physician.
Along with RPM, Victory Medical also offers Chronic Care Management (CCM). Both RPM and CCM are effective ways of managing chronic conditions. One difference between the two is that RPM uses monitoring devices, and CCM will have health updates communicated through a care manager. Many Medicare patients will benefit from one or both methods of care.
