Abstract

The cost of the treatment of chronic diseases is very high and this has a huge impact on the health-care system. Several factors contribute to this high cost. Some of these include the direct costs of treatment and the costs of several potential complications that arise as a result of the presence of other diseases. The goal of this study is to evaluate a cost-effective way of managing some of the common chronic diseases by analyzing the potential cost savings of utilizing remote monitoring systems (RMS) as opposed to the use of the traditional bundle (which includes regular visits to clinics for various procedures and treatments).
