Remote Patient Monitoring

Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is the remote collection and analysis of data (vital signs) to develop and manage a treatment plan related to a chronic health condition (Hypertension, Diabetes, & Weight Management). RPM helps you and your care team better manage your condition.

With the approved bluetooth-enabled devices provided to you, your vital sign data is transmitted to your care team, who use the information to determine treatments, interventions, and recommendations. This continuous data source helps your provider work with you to make the best decisions for your health.

Note: This program is a diagnostic tool and not intended to treat a life-threatening emergency. Your RPM data is not evaluated in real-time. If you are having symptoms of chest pain, shortness of breath, or palpitations you will need to report to the nearest Emergency Department.

If you are interested in learning more about Remote Patient Monitoring, consult with your Primary Care Provider.

How to Use Your Equipment

Checking your Blood Pressure:

Before your measurement (30 minutes prior)

  • Do not exercise.
  • Do not drink coffee or soda.
  • Do not smoke.
  • Sit quietly for 5-10 minutes.

During your measurement

  • Do not talk.
  • Sit upright and supported.
  • Place feet flat on the floor.
  • Rest arm on table at heart level.

Checking your Blood Glucose:

  • Wash your hands.
  • Put a lancet into the lancet device so that it’s ready to go.
  • Place a new test strip into the meter.
  • Prick your finger with the lancet in the protective lancing device.
  • Carefully place the subsequent drop of blood onto the test strip and wait for the results.

Checking your Weight:

  • Weigh yourself first thing in the morning at the same time each day for accuracy.
  • Wear little-to-no clothing, or the same outfit every time.
  • Use the bathroom before weighing yourself.
  • Place your scale flat on a hard floor.


What if I don’t see my data in the Healthbridge App?

  • Check that you have the HealthBridge app open, your device turned on, and that it is near your smartphone to sync the data.
  • Make sure that Bluetooth pairing is always enabled on the phone.
  • Taking the batteries out of the device, waiting a few minutes, and then adding them again is a hard reset on the device. Check a measurement again.
  • Turn the phone off, wait long enough for the phone to completely close, wait a few more seconds, and reboot the phone.
  • If none of the above suggestions resolved your issue, unpair the device from HealthBridge and then re-pair the device with HealthBridge. Test again at that point.
