Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) programs are becoming increasingly popular, supported by growing clinical evidence and financial benefits to providers. Simply put, Remote Patient Monitoring is a Medicare-covered service that involves the collection and analysis of patient physiologic data in real-time. Clinic staff can remotely monitor patients in between office visits. This virtual and real-time monitoring enables providers to truly meet the needs of their patients and provide timely care. Multiple studies have demonstrated improved patient outcomes and increased compliance while reducing hospital admission and readmissions. Providers also benefit financially as this is a well-reimbursed service.

RPM uptake among providers has been rapid, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic and limited in-person care. RPM companies have been coming to marker weekly if not daily in the past 12 months. However, there is a lot of information providers need to know before contracting with the RPM vendor to be compliant. After all, the billing is done under the provider and the provider will be the one audited.
