Project Title: A Hospital Without Walls – Remote Patient Monitoring Reinvented for Aging at Home
The project, a collaborative effort between acute care, primary care, home care and geriatrics, explores a new use of remote patient monitoring (RPM) technology. The intent is to assist frail seniors living with/without dementia in Prince Edward Island to age at home longer by coordinating timely interventions to reduce emergency department trips and hospital admissions, and increase quality of life for patients and their families.
