VHA iEX Talks: Remote Temperature Monitoring: The Journey to Zero Amputations

1 min read

Remote Temperature Monitoring can be summarized as the use of once-daily temperature scans of the feet to look for asymmetries. These asymmetries can predict foot ulcers or other problems often seen in patients with neuropathy, which can lead to infection, amputation, or even death if they are not caught early. The goal of Remote Temperature Monitoring is to reduce ulcers and limb loss for our highest risk patients. These high-risk patients regularly come from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, are often racial minorities, and frequently have difficulty following up for face-to-face visits. Remote Temperature Monitoring allows us to monitor these high-risk patients from their homes which helps improve their access to care and reduce healthcare inequities. As part of the Initiative to End Diabetic Limb Loss, this program has realized reductions in re-ulceration rates, amputation rates, emergency department visits, hospitalizations, and significant cost savings with the investment in prevention.
