What is Remote Health Monitoring System?
Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is a technology to enable monitoring of patients outside of conventional clinical settings, such as in the home or in a remote area, which may increase access to care and decrease healthcare delivery costs. It is a system integrating non-invasive health monitoring sensors to measure critical parameters such as temperature, pulse rate, SPO2 (Saturated Oxygen level) and respiration rate. BEL, which has proven expertise in network-centric and internet of things systems, has also networked these sensors for remotely monitoring the critical parameters.
