Last week, Dr Oliver Kharraz talked about finding doctors and getting appointments online at ZocDoc.  Today, John Holland, Senior Vice President, Business Development and Research at AMC Health, talks about patient telemonitoring.  AMC Health’s remote patient monitoring systems are used in chronic disease care, post-discharge programs and recently won FDA approval to be used in a clinical study.  Studies have shown remote patient monitoring to increase quality of care and reduce costs.  Indeed, telehealth [telemonitoring, telemedicine] seems like a “no-brainer” to me, increasing healthcare quality and efficiency while reducing costs.
