$500,000 Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) Diffusion Grants Program received over 90 competitive letters of intent applications.

3/26/10 By David Lindeman

Over 90 organizations submitted very strong letters of intent, all intended to expand proven remote patient monitoring technologies that help older adults remain independent. Requests for full proposals have gone out to 18 organizations for submittal by April 30. Organizations vary in provider setting, targeted patient populations, and technologies used to manage chronic disease, acute care, and safety needs.

The RPM diffusion grants program will provide up to six one-year grants to organizations successfully proposing programs that directly benefit older adults. Most grants will focus on Californians, but one or two may include older adults in other regions of the U.S. The Center will give priority to projects that demonstrate a successful strategy for the rapid diffusion of effective RPM technologies with a positive and measurable near-term impact on quality, cost or both. Be sure to look for our grant announcement in early July.

We look forward to identifying outstanding diffusion strategies for remote patient monitoring and being able to share these successful strategies nationally. Please contact the Center with any questions at
