More than 34 million American adults — about 13% of all adults — have diabetes, and more than 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year, according to 2018 data. While diabetes is chronic and incurable, successful management can greatly reduce the short- and long-term impact of the disease on a patient's life.
With Prevounce Remote Endocrinology Monitoring, endocrinologists get the information they need to adjust medications and advise patients on worthwhile lifestyle changes, increase patient volume and satisfaction, and earn their practices steady and strong reimbursement.
Blood sugar testing is an essential part of managing and controlling diabetes as well as reducing the likelihood of complications. For patients who should test their blood sugar periodically up to a few times a day, a rapidly growing number are receiving remote support for their diabetes management. When patients test their blood sugar with a glucose monitoring device, their prescribing endocrinologists receive the data that is captured. The physicians can then make changes to a drug regimen and provide lifestyle change recommendations to their patients, if warranted. Research indicates that endocrinology RPM is effective in helping control HbA1c levels in those with type 2 diabetes.
Adding remote physiological monitoring and growing an RPM program is straightforward and significantly beneficial for endocrinologists when they use Prevounce. Results are substantial: improvements in care for patients and consistent, strong revenue generator for practices.
Sign up for Prevounce Endocrinology Remote Patient Monitoring and receive our RPM system. We'll 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 endocrinology 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 endocrinology 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 endocrinology RPM services is an efficient and effective way of making a significant difference in your patients' health and wellness. RPM helps endocrinology 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.
Over just the past few years, RPM has become one of the higher-paying Medicare care management programs thanks to overhauls of coding and billing rules. Remote patient monitoring generates about $120 in monthly Medicare reimbursement per endocrinology patient. If your practice enrolls 100 patients in its endocrinology RPM program, that's more than $120,000 in reimbursement per year. With practice reimbursement broadly under pressure, adding RPM is an effective and highly efficient means for endocrinologists to generate supplemental, non-visit revenue.
