Remote Patient Monitoring Vendors

  • This list summarizes the key functionality of the various remote patient monitoring products as reported by the vendors on their own websites. Please note, the BCMA has not vetted these companies; this information is provided as a reference document for physicians seeking to implement remote patient monitoring into their practice. The listing is divided into companies who provide multi-condition remote monitoring functionality and those focused on monitoring a specific condition (e.g. diabetes, cardiac output, pain management).
