Atlanta (December 4, 2017) Global/Georgia Partnership for Telehealth (GPT) has partnered with Virginia-based remote patient monitoring (RPM) integrator Trapollo. Through this partnership, healthcare organizations will be able to source remote monitoring technologies and contract RPM program design, consulting services and non-clinical managed services. This will allow GPT to provide a complete RPM solution that is focused on operational efficiency for clinical teams and has the capacity to help serve underserved populations.
“Working with both small and large medical systems, GPT understands the importance of providing the pathway for quality care from the doctor to the patient - wherever the patient might be.” Rena Brewer, CEO of GPT stated.
"We are proud to align our services with the GPT network as a conduit for them to diversify their service lines to the underserved”, said John Aldridge, vice president of Trapollo.
With a rise in chronic diseases and pressure for healthcare entities to manage these complex patient populations cost effectively, remote monitoring in the patient's home environment has been proven to be effective and will continue to grow as a viable option for healthcare providers to deploy.
