Two years after launching a remote patient monitoring program for new mothers dealing with hypertension, UPMC is looking at lessons learned and making plans to expand the telehealth platform.

A remote patient monitoring program launched two years ago at UPMC is helping care providers identify and treat new mothers dealing with hypertension.

The telehealth program, which sends new moms home with an mHealth-enabled blood pressure cuff and urges them to monitor their blood pressure daily and text-message that data to care providers, has helped the health system reduce rehospitalizations and other negative clinical outcomes, while improving collaboration between providers and patients at home.

“We know they’re listening to us,” Beth Quinn, MSN, program director for women’s health services at UPMC Magee Women’s Hospital in Pittsburgh, says of the women enrolled in the program. “They’re listening to us, and they’re even quoting to us what they’d been told by their nurses. That tells us we’re making an impact.”
