Few specialties are benefiting more from remote patient monitoring than cardiology. RPM delivers tangible improvements in health and quality of care for patients and a large volume of eligible patients for practices.
With Prevounce Remote Cardiac Monitoring, cardiologists reduce patient risk and mortality while generating consistent, significant revenue that grows as the number of patients enrolled in the program increases.
Millions of U.S. adults have high blood pressure, yet most do not have it under control. Since hypertension usually presents without symptoms, the only way to determine whether a patient has high blood pressure is to measure their blood pressure. With ongoing remote monitoring of hypertension, cardiologists can make timely recommendations that better support heart-healthy living, such as changes to diet, exercise, and medication regimen. Research cited by the American Heart Association notes that remote cardiac monitoring can greatly reduce patient blood pressure compared to typical care and self-monitoring alone.
A sudden or steady gain in daily weight (e.g., 2 to 3 pounds in 24 hours or 5 pounds over a couple of weeks) can indicate that the body is retaining fluid — a symptom of heart failure. In fact, patients can gain up to 10 pounds of "extra" weight from fluid before feeling bad or experiencing swelling. With remote patient monitoring, cardiologists are alerted of such cardiac decompensation, allowing a fast response that can help reduce the condition and likelihood of hospitalization or critical care. Daily weight monitoring is frequently cited as one of the cornerstones for effective CHF management.
Interested in adding remote patient monitoring as a service for your patients and revenue generator for your practice? You've come to the right place. We have extensive experience with helping cardiology practices just like yours implement remote patient monitoring into their workflow and then grow their RPM programs.
Sign up for Prevounce and receive our RPM system. We'll take the time to train your clinical and billing staff on how to use Prevounce to deliver RPM services. Our system is easy to learn, thanks largely in part to the automatic syncing of patient data via EMR integration or patient import.
Once the simple training process is completed (we're always available to help if questions arise following completion of training), begin enrolling patients and designating your RPM device of choice. You can use a Prevounce device or bring your own. Select a Prevounce device and you can order devices directly to your patients or office for pickup with a single click in the Prevounce portal.
Once patients are set up with their devices, their data will be captured by the Prevounce RPM system. Review patient data in the Prevounce portal or your integrated EMR. The system will automatically notify you if patient readings enter a specified caution or critical range.
The system can also automatically track the logging of time toward RPM management billing codes, making it even easier to get paid for your services. Since RPM is still considered a fairly new service, it's undergoing frequent regulatory changes. But don't worry: We pride ourselves in remaining at the forefront of compliance, so you do not need to worry about our system coming up short in meeting evolving requirements.
Providing RPM services is an efficient and effective way of making a significant difference in your patients' health and wellness. RPM helps patients become more active participants in their health, removes barriers to care, reduces costs, and permits practitioners to make more timely and better informed decisions that reduce risk and improve outcomes.
Remote patient monitoring is one of the most lucrative Medicare care management programs, generating an average of $120 in monthly Medicare reimbursement. Enroll just 50 patients in your RPM program — that's more than $70,000 in annual reimbursement. And with reimbursement under pressure, RPM is an effective way of adding supplemental, non-visit revenue.
