Accuhealth, is pleased to announce today that based on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) published average cost of $13,800 per trip to the hospital, Accuhealth’s remote patient monitoring (RPM) program has resulted in over $100 million savings to the healthcare system with 7,246 hospital visits avoided. Not only a major cost savings, RPM is a staple service for today’s value-based care model, empowering physicians with the right tools and keeping patients happy, healthy, and out of the hospital.

The U.S. has one of the highest costs of healthcare in the world. In 2020, healthcare spending reached $4.1 trillion, which averaged over $12,500 per person. The substantial cost savings of Accuhealth’s RPM program directly contributes to lowering the overall cost of healthcare for each American, with significant cost savings for Medicare. RPM is an economically sound option for marginalized patients who typically lack the access and resources for value-based care. Keeping patients out of the hospital leads to measurable health improvements through RPM.

Accuhealth CEO Stephen Samson commented,

"This $100 million cost savings is validating – the proof is in the numbers. As America’s most reliable RPM vendor providing proactive care, Accuhealth has achieved monumental change in the delivery of healthcare services. The gap between patient and physician is closed, and Accuhealth’s RPM program is a cost-effective way to improve quality of life and reduce hospitalization for patients, while boosting efficiency for providers. With remote patient monitoring, everyone wins. I am thrilled that Accuhealth has hit this major milestone."

Multiple studies have shown that RPM reduces costs and improves health outcomes. The Veterans Health Administration recently found that the benefits of RPM can reduce hospitalizations by as much as 40% for some diseases and achieve annual savings of $6,500 per patient. The Insurance Journal estimates that RPM could potentially deliver over $6 billion a year in healthcare savings in the U.S. if the technology is widely adopted. According to a Deloitte study, over the next 25 years, RPM is expected to save $200 billion in healthcare costs globally, and patients will not only have the convenience of staying at home while experiencing an improved quality of care with RPM, but it is likely to be far more cost-effective than frequent hospital visits.
