Providing Care in Between Visits

Tori McDerment has been in the healthcare space for more than ten years, but she never thought that technology would allow providers to take care of patients outside of regular office visits. But since becoming the RPM (remote patient monitoring) Specialist at Lake Oconee Primary and Urgent Care Center in Eatonton, GA, she has witnessed first-hand the positive impact that RPM can have on improving health outcomes.

“Prior to offering RPM, we were typically only seeing patients every 3-6 months, which posed a challenge in helping them manage their hypertension and diabetes,” Tori says.

The Lake Oconee clinic researched RPM solutions and selected Optimize Health because of the solution’s flexibility and available services. “Our top priority was to make sure the RPM program conformed to our needs, rather than us having to conform to the RPM program. Optimize Health’s platform is very flexible, and I absolutely love their customer service.”
