Remote Patient Monitoring

The In-Home Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) program combines resources from ADPH Home Care, the Alabama Medicaid Agency and the University of South Alabama to provide an in-home monitoring service for specific chronic illnesses.

Medicaid Patient 1st patients who have congestive heart failure, diabetes, and/or hypertension may qualify for the in- home monitoring program. The Patient 1st provider will determine if the patient needs daily monitoring and will provide the orders for the patients to be admitted to the In-Home Bio-Monitoring Program.
