United States adults over the age of 65 have the highest risk for mortality when infected with COVID-19. The virus kills 13% of patients 80 and older, and 73% of those hospitalized for the virus have a preexisting condition. Since going to the office heightens risk of infection and can lead to life-threatening outcomes, it’s become crucial to keep chronic care seniors at home during the pandemic.

Many chronic care seniors have limited financial resources and encounter significant logistic and technological barriers to care, making this population the most susceptible to severe illness when infected with the COVID-19 virus. But continuing to provide care by monitoring and treating their chronic conditions during this time is critical. If their conditions — diabetes, obesity, and congestive heart failure — become unmanaged, it can result in potentially catastrophic and expensive outcomes, further stressing the healthcare system.

With the growing need to serve seniors at home, the pandemic has changed how doctors, nurses, and the medical community can safely treat patients. Remote care, including telemedicine and remote patient monitoring, has come to the forefront as an effective method of maintaining social distancing protocols while providing necessary care to an at-risk senior population. As a result, providers now have more options for helping senior patients navigate a real threat to their health with remote patient monitoring. It’s just a matter of choosing the right remote patient monitoring devices to offer your patients.

There are a handful of companies touting remote patient monitoring services and devices, but which devices should you equip your patients with? The answer lies in assessing symptoms, including those associated with COVID-19, and risks.

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
