What is Remote Therapeutic Monitoring?

There's a lot of confusion around the term "remote therapeutic monitoring." How does it differ from regular remote patient monitoring, and how can you use it to your advantage?

Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM) is just like regular remote patient monitoring in that it allows you to keep tabs on your patient's health remotely through some sort of technology. But unlike regular remote patient monitoring, which only focuses on data collection and analysis, remote therapeutic monitoring also offers a means of treatment.

RTM involves the use of specialized software that tracks a person's vital signs (like heart rate, blood pressure, respiration rate) and other therapeutic data (pain levels, medication adherence) and interprets those readings so they can be used to prescribe medication or offer other forms of treatment. This type of technology is often used by people with chronic illnesses who need constant access to medical care but cannot make frequent trips to the doctor.

As the world and technology continues to advance, RTM offers more ways for people to access healthcare and healthcare monitoring services all from the comfort of their home. It has the ability to make managing health easier and more efficient for everyone.

Make Mornings Fun Again

One mom from Houston, TX uses her lockbox to encourage her son to take his morning medication. She’s turned the dreaded task of pills in the morning, into a fun and interactive way for her son to learn medication management.
The night before I’ll put his medicine into his lockbox along with his favorite dinosaur toy or sticker. In the morning he’ll wake up and open it through Ask Alexa, take his medicine and grab his toy. He loves it and it’s made our morning routines so much easier. With the log on the app, I can always check and see if he did open it too.

Saving time, stress, and encouraging peace-of-mind and healthier habits is what we aim for with our products. We couldn’t be happier to hear of the success one family has had with our lockboxes!
