How fee-for-service and value-based care organizations benefit in 2022
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is transforming patient care by providing precise PGHD between in-person visits to improve outcomes, increase patient engagement, streamline clinical efficiency, and lower costs. Now, CMS is expanding CPT code reimbursement for RPM, CCM, RTM and telehealth to provide an additional revenue stream for healthcare organizations.
The majority of clinical decisions are made based on a “snapshot in time” of our health, measured and recorded during a medical encounter. But our health “happens” all the time. Not just when we are in the clinic or the hospital.
Many healthcare organizations are now turning to advanced Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) systems to reduce rehospitalization rates. For almost all types of at-home care, RPM is revolutionizing standard of care, while also lowering the burden on care teams, keeping costs in check, and dramatically reducing hospital readmissions.
As medical technology has advanced over the years, we now have the power to greatly improve patient outcomes by remotely collecting patient generated health data (PGHD). This power also presents a challenge to efficiency by requiring more resources to monitor and react to the incoming remote care data. Is there a way to win both worlds? Better outcomes without increasing, or even decreasing operational costs?
