When RPM devices work together with a cellular gateway, it provides more choice and cost-effectiveness. The Tenovi Cellular Gateway is an innovative solution that connects virtually any Bluetooth-enabled RPM device by enabling them to harness cellular technology for seamless data transmission. 

Physicians can use Tenovi devices to monitor various health metrics, including blood pressure, temperature, heart rate, oxygen saturation, peak expiratory flow, blood glucose, weight, and more. This makes Tenovi medical devices appropriate for patients with various conditions, from chronic diseases like asthma, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and high blood pressure to acute conditions like respiratory infections, Long COVID-19, and sepsis. For example, patients with hypertension would use remote blood pressure monitoring devices to help monitor and manage their condition. 

Security in Remote Patient Monitoring

As the number of cyber attacks on healthcare organizations continues to rise, with an average of 1426 cyber attacks per week in 2022, the need for secure remote patient monitoring solutions is more critical than ever. Fortunately, Tenovi’s RPM devices offer a highly secure option for healthcare providers. These devices utilize encrypted data transmission, ensuring the protection of patient data, which is of utmost importance in the healthcare industry. Moreover, Tenovi employs frequent security patches and updates to ensure the data remains secure.

Cost Considerations

When considering the cost of RPM devices, it is essential to note that while the price can vary significantly, these devices are generally a more cost-effective option than in-person healthcare services. Not only can remote monitoring help to reduce the need for frequent office visits and hospitalizations, but it can also be more accessible to patients. Insurance coverage, reimbursement policies, and regulatory requirements can also influence the cost of devices.
