MIAMI, FL, April 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire – Progressive Care Inc. (OTCQB:RXMD) (“Progressive Care” or the “Company”), a personalized healthcare services and technology company, is excited to announce its expansion into the rapidly growing multi-billion dollar Remote Patient Monitoring (“RPM”) space.
According to new research from MarketsandMarkets, the global RPM market is projected to reach $175.2 billion by 2027, growing at a robust 27% compound annual growth rate over the next 5 years.
The National Center for Biotechnology Information estimates that approximately 67% of Medicare beneficiaries have two or more chronic conditions accounting for 94% of Medicare spending. Chronic conditions have a significant impact on healthcare spending as well as hospital readmissions. Due to this burden, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) developed the RPM program to mitigate spending and provide clinicians with the digital data to implement more informed treatment plans for patients enrolled in the service. The Company’s experience in medication and therapy management and its active participation in data analytics would carry over directly into the RPM marketplace.
The implementation of patient-oriented technologies such as wearables and 5 G-powered home devices to track physiological data will enhance Progressive Care’s capabilities to provide doctors with usable insights into patients’ overall health. Additionally, it will benefit our existing physician base as well as provide a more complete suite of services for future accounts. CMS authorizes pharmacies to work in collaboration with providers, offering services as employees or contracted personnel and thereby enabling the Company to bill providers and healthcare organizations for RPM services.
Alan Jay Weisberg, CEO of Progressive Care, stated, “The RPM space is set to be one of the most important growth areas within the healthcare industry over coming years and our most logical next step given our broad base of patients who have multiple chronic conditions. Progressive Care has differentiated itself from competitors in terms of commitment to medication therapy management. Our reputation among healthcare professionals in this domain is one of our strongest advantages.”
