Remote patient monitoring for chronic medical conditions: Diabetes and hypertension

Overview Resources

Project Overview

The purpose of this project was to develop and evaluate a practical, scalable, and sustainable system of chronic disease management via remote patient monitoring (RPM). This was completed through scientific evaluation and analysis of the Technology Assisted Case Management in Low Income Adults with Type 2 Diabetes (TACM-2) program. TACM-2 utilizes RPM for diabetes and hypertension to augment regular clinical care, with the ultimate goal of improving health outcomes particularly for low-income patients regardless of geographic location. Since initiation of the program in 2016, more than 28 clinics have participated in this program, located in all four regions of the state. A large number of these clinics are HRSA-funded federally qualified health centers (FQHCs).
