Remote patient monitoring (RPM), health IT legislation, health equity and consumerism top the list of 2022 Predictions From Healthcare Executives.
In this article from Managed Healthcare Executive, Nick Loftin, Director, Virtual Care, Pivot Point Consulting, joins 17 healthcare executives to look ahead and share the forces and events that will shape the American healthcare landscape in 2022. Check out a preview of 2022 Predictions from healthcare executives below.
“Although remote patient monitoring (RPM) has been around for a long time, it is poised to grow in use both with overall utilization as well as across a greater number of use cases. Typically, RPM has been utilized to primarily support chronic disease management. We are now seeing more patient and health centers leverage it in varying uses, such as general health monitoring and to facilitate hospital at home programs.”
Because COVID-19 increased the need for virtual visits, we saw a marked increase in patient utilization and adoption. From this, we are seeing many new entrants to the market that solely offer services through a virtual platform. In order to provide these services, their providers have been cross-licensed in various states, and thus can provide services to any individual, no matter their geographic location. Due to the challenging nature of payer contracting when providing services to such a large geographic area, these organizations are pushing for self-pay instead of going through a patient’s insurance.
