Let us show you
what the Arche Healthcare Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) program can do for you.
The RPM Program calculator was created to provide an illustration of the savings and ROI you can expect for your high-risk (Stratification Level 3 1 ) population of members with diabetes.
Our mutual goal is to reduce the incidence of Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFU) and Lower Extremity Amputations (LEA) that drive tremendous costs of care. Members with diabetes who experience these complications are at risk of death and may suffer reduced quality of life and lost productivity.
For your members at the highest risk of developing a DFU, the Arche Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) program offers state of the art monitoring of two key metrics that allow for early intervention to reduce the risk of ulceration:
Skin moisture level.
- Dry, cracked skin is not as elastic as moisturized skin, increasing the risk for developing cracks and fissures with can lead to wounds and infections.
Increased focal temperature on the plantar surface of the foot.
- Indicative of inflammation, early detection of and intervention for inflammation can prevent a wound from developing, which saves the costly cascade of wound care, possible amputation, loss of productivity, disability and possibly even death.
