The news: Best Buy-owned remote patient monitoring (RPM) company Current Health is teaming up with Zoom to add telehealth capabilities to its at-home care platform.
More on Current Health: Current’s platform is compatible with electronic health records (EHRs), and it partners with telehealth providers, health systems and home health agencies.
The company saw major growth during the pandemic: RPM use was already on an upward trajectory, but the pandemic accelerated that.
Why Zoom? It’s HIPAA-compliant, can integrate easily with EHR systems, and is a leading telehealth option for providers.
What this means for Best Buy: Best Buy’s Current Health acquisition (completed in October 2021) is going to help it bolster its RPM solutions and score more health system partners.
The bigger picture: This partnership underscores how RPM and telehealth are becoming more intertwined in healthcare.
