HLSA Regular Stan Marett Interviewed by Temple Daily Telegram

We’re always proud to report on the successes of our regular attendees! A recent article by Janice Gibbs of the Temple Daily Telegram underscores the points made by MR3 President, Stan Marett, earlier this year at the Temple Health and Bioscience District’s pitch competition at its annual Med-Tech Symposium. MR3 took third place at the competition with a presentation on the importance of RPM (Remote Patient Monitoring) as an indispensable tool for physicians in maintaining the health of their patients. In addition to diabetes, there are a number of chronic diseases, including hypertension, congestive heart failure and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease with simple physiologic indicators that can easily be monitored remotely on a daily basis. Changes in such indicators can generate alerts for physicians allowing them to react quickly to adverse conditions. The preventive benefits of routine daily monitoring are significant, a fact recognized by Medicare in the creation of new reimbursement codes for physicians who offer RPM services.
