Science is developing at a faster pace in this tech-driven world. The Healthcare industry is coming up with lots of new ideas and innovations to cope with the changing trends and lifestyles.
When we speak about healthcare in common, every department dealing with different types and kinds of disorders and problems is important. We cannot rank them upon anything, right? Each department is unique and each has its difficulties.
Likewise, addiction medicine practice is also a significant one in the industry and is also directly connected to societal well-being. Addiction was and always has been the most complicated and patience-seeking one among others. Many de-addiction centers and facilities seek professional help to treat patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.
And this made the usage of various healthcare software platforms like remote patient monitoring (RPM) more popular with addiction medicine practices.
According to a source, “addiction medicine is a medical subspecialty that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, evaluation, treatment, and recovery of persons with addiction, those with substance-related and addictive disorders, and people who show unhealthy use of substances including alcohol, nicotine, prescription medicine, and other illicit and licit drugs”.
The medical subspecialty often crosses over into other areas, since various aspects of addiction fall within the fields of public health, psychology, social work, mental health counseling, psychiatry, and internal medicine, among others.
Within the specialty, the processes of rehabilitation, detoxification, individual and group therapy, etc are included. Some specialties also provide treatment for disease states commonly related to substance use, such as hepatitis and HIV infection.
The need for providing advanced and better care for people with addiction is increasing tremendously. They are searching for easy access and good quality services without investing a huge amount of money and time.
RPM enables healthcare providers associated with addiction medicine practices to use various forms of telecommunications to reach out to their patients.
They can even use basic communication tools like zoom, whats app calls, snap chats, mobiles, landlines, etc, and RPM devices like blood pressuring monitor, and pulse oximeter to monitor oxygen saturation (SPO2), and other wearable devices that can track respiratory rates.
Other types of technology that can be applied for remote monitoring include, remotely assessing patients’ behaviors and attitudes through web-enabled dashboards, educational and support programs online, appointments, and daily support text reminders.
The environment of a de-addiction facility or hospital may seem dull for the patients. A good positive vibe is necessary for the early recovery of the patients. RPM helps to improve patients’ comfort by caring for them in their personal space.
There are insurance coverages for substance abuse rehabilitation and various form of mental health treatment.
Be it treatment for anything, remote patient monitoring’s role is a crucial one. Its use of devices and delivering high-quality care remotely enables patients to relax and forget about the tension due to in-patient visits at facilities and clinics.
Remote monitoring allows them to reach out to services from the comfort of their home in full privacy, and this creates a sense of safety and a positive response to the treatment. Especially for patients under rehabilitation enjoys this because they are not bound by any kind of restrictions to go out and enjoy their dear life.
