Remote Patient Monitoring, or RPM, lets you manage chronic illness such as diabetes and heart disease with specialized care delivered through a tablet computer.
Coach Leroy Henderson of Mound Bayou, Mississippi, has struggled managing his Type 2 diabetes. Now, thanks to RPM, he has help.
He controls his condition with daily monitoring and regular online check-ins with a UMMC Telehealth dietician, Cindy, on a tablet computer at home.
Cindy can spot problems early and recommend treatment at a local clinic. Leroy now has his diabetes under control and his health has improved.
