Over the past decade, Infoway has been investing in telehomecare (also known as remote patient monitoring or RPM) programs in Canada, delivering health services to patients in the comfort of their own home. These programs have a 400 per cent ROI. That is, for every $1 invested in these telehomecare programs, the health system sees $4 in value. And patients, too, are satisfied, with 91 per cent saying they are better able to manage their health condition as a result of the program.
