I'm also looking for any advice or best practices for integrating and processing EOSDIS data into a real-time monitoring platform. What procedures or documentation should I follow to proceed with this request?

Thanks for your message. I am somewhat surprised you didn't receive a reply before now. I think your post may have been overlooked because you did not designate a particular data center.
To get started, I would examine this site: https://lance.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/
The data latency for various environmental-related datasets varies between missions and data centers. For example, there is a precipitation data product called IMERG that provides "Early" and "Late" run data, with the Early available 4-6 hours after acquisition, and the "Late" ~18 hours after acquisition, with the Late Run data more accurate than the Early Run. We have this data at the GES DISC, https://disc.gsfc.nasa.gov. Some IMERG data can be accessed and visualized with our Giovanni system, https://giovanni.gsfc.nasa.gov/. The other NASA data centers have other data products and variables, with the time from acquisition dependent on what the data pertains to, and where it comes from.
So, hopefully this can get you started, and feel free to reply with more specific questions.
