The path to digital health implementation
The following step-by-step process is intended to guide your practice through the implementation of remote patient monitoring.
These first six steps are fundamental to the planning of implementation of remote patient monitoring.
Step 1: Identifying a need
Brainstorm a list of your organization's challenges—where you lose efficiency, where your staff encounter pain points, or where patients' health or satisfaction suffers.
Step 2: Forming a team
Consider organizing your key stakeholders into four teams: Core, Leadership, Advisory, and Implementation based on the criteria and responsibilities.
Step 3: Defining success
Set goals with measurable metrics and a process for tracking your progress to guide your team along the way.
Step 4: Evaluating the vendors
Evaluate vendors across criteria that will enable your goals; select a shortlist by speaking with organizations similar to yours.
Step 5: Making the case
Compile the content you've gathered into a leadership team proposal.
Step 6: Contracting
Lay the groundwork for a successful vendor relationship; ensure negotiations are captured in documents that protect both you and your new partner.
The subsequent six steps focus on operationalizing remote patient monitoring.
