Remote Patient Monitoring Innovator to Become the Exclusive Technology Partner for the Organization’s Chronic Care Manager Program
CareSimpleTM, a platform that is simplifying remote patient monitoring (RPM) for virtually all patients, and Marie Peppers, licensed practical nurse (LPN) and founder of the Chronic Care Manager Course, an online training program for RPM and chronic care manager courses, announced today that they have entered into a strategic partnership. Under the terms of the agreement and Marie’s leadership, the CareSimple RPM platform will be incorporated into the Chronic Care Manager Course, advancing the education of its students, and providing payers and providers with the opportunity to train or hire CareSimple-trained nurses. The Chronic Care Manager Course currently trains over 1,000 RPM and chronic care manager nurses annually, a number that continues to escalate year over year.
The Chronic Care Manager Course was launched in 2019 with the mission of providing the highest quality of virtual training to qualified registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, medical assistants, nurse practitioners and social workers looking to transition to a remote RPM and chronic care manager position. Based on an extensive 50-hour module, and unlike other professional training programs, the Chronic Care Manager Course is purely about high-quality education and does not charge head-hunting fees to employers. Rather, it is focused on ensuring that course graduates are properly trained with the necessary technology tools and clinical knowledge that they need to deliver quality remote care while working from home.
“The number one priority for the Chronic Care Manager Course and for myself has always been to provide our nurses with the most comprehensive remote patient monitoring and chronic care manager training available and making sure that they are as prepared as possible when they enter the clinical workforce,” said Marie Peppers, LPN. “In partnering with CareSimple and incorporating its RPM solution into our online curriculum, we are ensuring that our graduates are well-versed and comfortable using the most advanced technologies available and are ready and able to apply that knowledge seamlessly from day one post-certification.”
When it came to selecting a technology partner, CareSimple was a natural choice given its popularity and clear focus on enabling patients and providers with a platform that is focused on simplicity. Rather than following other vendors offering bundles that combine software with clinical services, CareSimple is a pure platform with complete end-to-end interfaces, streamlining and simplifying RPM for patients and care professionals alike. With more than 2.3 million new healthcare workers needed by 2025, and with payers and providers using CareSimple and building their own virtual care teams, the partnership provides a new certification to look upon when hiring or training nurses.
“CareSimple is thrilled to work with Marie Peppers, a rising star in remote care who trains an important part of America’s RPM and chronic care manager nursing talent,” said Michel Nadeau, CEO of CareSimple. “We both believe that virtual care requires a high level of trust and is most effective when done by the patient’s provider, in a familiar language and culture. The simplicity of our platform combined with the high-quality and human-first training provided by Marie and her team creates an exciting opportunity for our customers to scale RPM and chronic care management to new heights, and we look forward to seeing the positive and demonstrable impact on patient health outcomes.”
