How a Texas family practice uses technology to overcome barriers to chronic care management

Dr. Barry J. Liberoni’s internal medicine practice in South Texas serves a large adult patient population with over 40 multiple chronic conditions, including hypertension, obesity, and heart disease. Common to small practices serving this demographic, Dr. Liberoni’s patient outcomes were too often hindered by logistical and technological challenges experienced by patients who required timely care. His practice turned to telemedicine and remote patient monitoring (RPM) to address these challenges and effectively provide care to patients at home.

“Our practice quickly turned to telemedicine and remote patient monitoring to provide comprehensive care. I believe if you’re not a medical practice that offers remote patient monitoring in combination with telemedicine, you’re going to lose your patients and the necessary capital that comes with that to keep your doors open and your staff on payroll during these challenging times,” said Dr. Liberoni.

Once Dr. Liberoni’s practice decided to move forward with remote patient monitoring, they prioritized finding a solution that was easy to use and didn’t require providers or patients to download an app. After selection, they began enrolling patients in the program as they came into the office. With at-home tools like digital scales, blood glucose monitors, and automated blood pressure cuffs, Dr. Liberoni’s practice is now able to remotely monitor vital signs of over 1000 patients and treat their chronic conditions in real-time.

“Our remote patient monitoring devices assist physicians and our staff to monitor patients by providing informative data virtually,” said Dr. Liberoni. “This data can be relied on to make informed clinical decisions throughout our patients’ course of care. The additional revenue has been invaluable to our practice, but the data from these devices has enabled our practice to care for our patients when they are at risk, and that’s what matters most to our practice.” Dr. Liberoni calls the devices his “eyes and boots in the house,” giving him a better understanding of how patients are doing on a daily basis — while they live their lives.

“[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.”
