Adding a New HF/HTN Patient

*Please note the screenshots and information in this article contain fake PHI*

If you need to add a new patient that uses a BP cuff, a Weight Scale, or a CardioMEMs device to the Rhythm360 portal, follow these steps:

  1. Login to the Rhythm360 portal for the patient's clinic, click Add New and select Patient.

  1. A new window will appear, displaying a form for creating a new patient profile. Fill out the form using the patient's information, the required fields have a red * (only Patient Name and Date of Birth)

  1. Once all of the required information has been filled out, click Continue. This will create the patient and open a window for devices to be added. 
  2. Select the type of device with Data Type, in this case HF/HTN Device, and more fields to fill out will appear. 

  1. Once the Device Type, Vendor, and Serial Number are added, click Add New Device and it will be added on the right hand side of the window and other devices can be added for the new patient. 

If you are adding an HF/HTN device for an existing patient, then the screen in steps 4&5 can be re-accessed by choosing the Manage Device page. 

Once the device is added, you can proceed to activate Start Monitoring and configure thresholds, goals, and alerts by choosing Edit Thresholds/Goals/Alerts, which will also appear automatically upon selecting Start Monitoring. For additional information, please see the related articles provided below.

It is strongly recommended to add their HF/HTN Clinician at this time as well. This can be accessed through the drop down menu at the top of the patient page to the right of “HF/HTN Clinician”. This will allow Clinicians who have the setting to only see their own patients to see the transmissions and reports for this patient and for easier filtering on the dashboards.
