A Detailed Comparison: RPM Vs. Traditional Care For Cancer

Cancer care has evolved significantly, with Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) emerging as a transformative approach alongside traditional care methods. This detailed comparison examines the impact of RPM versus traditional care on various aspects of cancer treatment.

By analyzing factors such as access to care, patient monitoring frequency, early intervention, patient satisfaction, cost of care, provider efficiency, survival rates, quality of life, mental health impact, treatment adjustment efficiency, emergency room visits, therapy adherence, and overall healthcare utilization, we highlight the benefits and challenges associated with each approach.

Access To Care

RPM: 90% Of Patients in a Study Reported An Increased Sense Of Security Knowing Their Health Was Continuously Monitored.

Traditional Care: 30% Of Patients Reported Difficulty Scheduling Timely Appointments​.

Patient Monitoring Frequency

RPM: Data Shows RPM Can Detect Critical Changes 18 Hours Earlier Than Traditional Methods​.

Traditional Care: 1 in 4 Patients Miss Critical Data For Treatment.

Early Intervention And Response

RPM:  Studies Show a 40% Increase in The Ability To Intervene Before Acute Episodes, Reducing Potential Hospitalizations​.

Traditional Care: Interventions Are Often Delayed Until The Patient’s Next Visit Or Until Symptoms Worsen Significantly.

Patient Satisfaction

RPM: 85% Of Patients Report Higher Satisfaction Due To The Convenience And Immediacy Of Care​.

Traditional Care: 60% Satisfaction, Mainly Due To The Personal Interaction With Healthcare Providers, Despite Some Inconveniences.

Cost Of Care

RPM: Can Reduce The Cost Of Cancer Care by Up To 20% by Minimizing Hospital Stays And Emergency Visits​.

Traditional Care: Associated With Higher Costs Due To Frequent In-Person Visits And Higher Rates Of Emergency Interventions.

Healthcare Provider Efficiency

RPM: Increases Provider Efficiency by 30% Due To Reduced Need For Routine Physical Consultations.

Traditional Care: Less Efficient, 45% Of Providers Report Delays in Sharing Medical Records. 

Survival Rates

RPM: Early Detection And Ongoing Monitoring Contribute To a 15% Improvement in One-Year Survival Rates​.

Traditional Care: Standard Survival Rates, a 25% Higher Mortality Risk Without Consistent Monitoring.

Quality Of Life

RPM: 75% Of Patients Report An Improved Quality Of Life Due To Better Symptom Management And Less Disruption To Daily Life.

Traditional Care: 50% Of Patients Feel Their Quality Of Life Could Be Improved With More Consistent Monitoring And Support​.

Impact On Mental Health

RPM: 70% Of Patients Report Reduced Anxiety Due To Consistent Monitoring And Immediate Access To Healthcare Providers.

Traditional Care: 50% Of Patients Experience Increased Stress And Anxiety Due To Irregular Monitoring And Lack Of Immediate Medical Support.

Efficiency in Treatment Adjustment

RPM: Enables 50% Quicker Treatment Adjustments Based On Real-Time Health Data, Significantly Improving Therapeutic Outcomes.

Traditional Care: 47% Of Rural Patients (15.2 Million) Face Access Challenges.

Emergency Room Visits

RPM: Studies indicate a 30% Reduction in Emergency Room Visits For RPM-Monitored Patients Due To Effective Preemptive Care.

Traditional Care: 1.2 Million ER Visits Could Potentially Be Avoided With Better Access To Preventative Healthcare Measures Annually.

Therapy Adherence

RPM: Enhances Therapy Adherence Rates by Up To 40% Through Continuous Monitoring And Patient Reminders.

Traditional Care: Lower Adherence Rates, 1 in 5 Patients Feel Unprepared To Manage Side Effects.

Overall Healthcare Utilization

RPM: Decreases Overall Healthcare Utilization by 25% by Reducing The Need For in-Person Healthcare Services.

Traditional Care: Cancer Costs $183b Annually in Treatment & Lost Productivity.
