Remote patient monitoring equipment (RPM) allows patients to monitor vital signs in the home. Incorporating RPM for chronic disease management allows patients to be independent, reduces complications and decreases travel time.
A student measures her own oxygen saturation by learning how to use the pulse oximeter which is part of the RPM equipment.
Vital sign data is sent to a Care Coordinator using secure networks. The Care Coordinator is responsible for monitoring and coordinating a patient’s care based on the data received.  STAR students learn the benefits of RPM by using the equipment.
Students are using high definition video conferencing equipment to simulate the connection of patient to physician over large geographical distances.
Students use iPads to connect remotely to simulate a patient encounter.

STAR offers the convenience of on-line training, as well as hands-on experience with state-of-the-art technologies in its training laboratory housed at the New College Institute, Martinsville, VA.
