According to Trends in Remote Patient Monitoring 2009 by Menlo, Calif.-based Spyglass Consulting Group, 97 percent of healthcare organizations currently rely on remote patient monitoring solutions.

Spyglass says monitoring technology not only saves unnecessary trips to the emergency department, but also prevents re-hospitalization.

The end-user market study is a follow-up to the group’s 2006 report on the same topic. Remote patient monitoring solutions have been demonstrated to be successful for patients with congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and diabetes.
