Treating Chronic Patients During
COVID-19 and Beyond
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Remote Patient Monitoring tools, or RPM, were being invested in or evaluated by 88 percent of healthcare providers. These early adopters recognized the benefits this tool could have on their chronic patient population, such as population health management and improved workflow efficiencies.
When the initial outbreak of COVID-19 caused practices to close their doors to in-person visits, many more healthcare providers recognized the potential of utilizing RPM technology to continuously monitor their chronic patients. According to Medical Economics, “the pandemic also led healthcare leaders to look at new ways to remotely and automatically detect signs of COVID-19 in asymptomatic or pre-symptomatic individuals, or perhaps identify signs of long-term side effects, such as heart and lung damage, that has been linked to the virus. RPM tools seemed the obvious choice.”
A New Way to Increase Revenues with Remote, Home-Based Services
Do you treat patients with chronic conditions? Do you have patients who are now unable to visit your office but need consistent care? If so, we can help, through remote clinical staff augmentation.
If your Medicare Population exceeds 250 patients or you have a patient segment covered by a plan supporting the Chronic Care Management codes (for patients with two or more chronic conditions), you may qualify to bill for existing codes related to CCM, remote patient monitoring and behavioral health, all fully managed by external clinical and administrative staff.
Because the program leverages existing billing codes, you can begin immediately with no upfront costs.
