Remote Patient Monitoring: The New Frontier in Telemedicine

By Ksenia Gorbenko, Alaina Kessler, Mark Liu, Melanie Besculides, Carol Kisswany, Madhu Mazumdar, and Cardinale B. Smith

Telemedicine and remote monitoring can be solutions for delivering equitable cancer care and improving access to quality care, as demonstrated in a study at Mount Sinai Hospital, New York City.

Also in This Issue:

  • Changing the Tune for CAR T-Cell Therapy
    Remote patient monitoring can eliminate the need for the hospitalization of patients dealing with the toxicities of CAR T-Cell Therapy, thereby improving the overall patient experience and helping cancer programs reduce healthcare costs.
  • Improving Cancer Care Teamwork
    The absence of an optimal care coordination model coupled with the vast network of interdisciplinary providers involved in cancer care requires patient-centered strategies to improve cancer care delivery.
  • Best Processes for Developing a Successful Cardio-Oncology Program in a Community Hospital
    Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, Pa., successfully developed a cardio-oncology program designed to implement best practices and guideline-based care, which resulted in an average growth in patient volume of 50 percent per year.
  • Pre- and Post-Treatment Clinic: Providing Psychosocial Care from Diagnosis to Survivorship
    The importance of psychosocial care to patients with cancer inspired this West Virginia based cancer program to open a new multidisciplinary treatment clinic to better help patients navigate their cancer journey.
  • Are We Speaking the Same Language?
    ACCC conducted an educational initiative focused on garnering insights from patients and healthcare providers about chronic lymphocytic leukemia in areas like patient education, telehealth, and biomarker testing.
  • Precision Medicine Stewards: A Case Study from Sanford Health
    This cancer program piloted an Oncology Nurse Navigator, Genomics role, which improved the coordination of its biomarker testing program primarily through patient education and financial navigation.
