RPM Onboarding Best Practices Guide: How to Grow Your RPM Program with Effective Patient Onboarding

Successful RPM programs demand a well thought-out approach to patient identification and onboarding.

Remote patient monitoring has been a well-documented success story for improving clinical outcomes while generating new revenue for physician practices. However, to realize any of these clinical or financial benefits, you must be able to successfully onboard patients.

Despite the obvious win-win nature of RPM, many practices have struggled to onboard patients in a way that drives consistent growth and high patient engagement. Insufficient staff, too many competing priorities, and lack of buy-in from physicians and staff can all lead to onboarding challenges.
