Remote Patient Monitoring

The Remote Patient Monitoring Service combines resources from ADPH Home Health, the Alabama Medicaid Agency, and the University of South Alabama to provide an in-home monitoring service for specific chronic illnesses.

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

Potential Benefits for Patients

  • Potential for improved outcomes
  • Lowered healthcare-related expenses
  • Improved compliance with the provider’s plan of care
  • Education and reinforcement of healthy behavior changes
  • Increased satisfaction with care
  • Reduced emergent care visits and hospitalizations

Financial Criteria

Remote Patient Monitoring Services are provided under Alabama Medicaid for patients who:

  • Meet admission criteria
  • Have a PCP provider who will provide the orders for the In-Home Remote Patient Monitoring Program
