Casana Studies Demonstrate Shift to RPM
The COVID-19 pandemic brought about a drastic cultural shift in the way people think about healthcare, with an increased demand for in-home health options. In 2020, over 29 million patients used remote patient monitoring services and tools. Growth in remote patient monitoring peaked in April 2020, with the overall usage of office visits and outpatient care being 78 times higher than in February 2020. As more individuals seek to avoid in-person healthcare visits, whether out of comfort or necessity, the demand for in-home health options has skyrocketed. This trend is expected to continue, with an estimated $250 billion of US healthcare spend that could be shifted towards virtual or virtually enabled care.
