How It Works

  1. Sign up

    Our onboarding specialists can get your clinic setup over the phone in about 20 minutes.

  2. EHR Integration

    Our operations team will begin installing your EHR integration so that you can start ordering RPM right away. EHR integration can be done completely virtually.

  3. Training

    You and your staff will watch a series of short online on-demand training videos and you'll have access to unlimited one-on-one hands-on training as needed.

  4. Enroll your patients

    Enroll your patients through our EHR integration or through our secure online patient submission form. Once your RPM order reaches us, we'll ship out the appropriate device to the patient right away and get them onboarded.

  5. Review and respond to critical alerts

    Our clinical team will call your patients when their readings are abnormal and then escalate appropriate ones to your attention. The time our clinical team spends with your patients accrues towards your billing of RPM codes (we don't bill the payers for RPM, you do).

  6. Bill and get reimbursed

    We'll generate a monthly billing spreadsheet that your biller will need to generate your RPM claims for the previous month. We'll provide one-on-one billing assistance for you and your team, so that you know exactly how to file these claims.

Real Data. Real Fields.

Truly Seamless EHR Integration

 EHR integration is critical for Remote Patient Monitoring success so that the RPM program can integrate into your current workflow and so that you can easily generate quality reports using the RPM data. Many RPM vendors claim "integration," but in reality all they do is scan PDFs; our integration places readings into true data fields in your EHR. With some EHRs, we can even auto-generate RPM claims.

Practice-Wide Thresholds

When you and your clinic onboard with us, we will ask you to determine your "At Risk" and "Critical" alert thresholds for each physiological parameter (blood pressure, heart rate, glucose, etc.). These will be your practice-wide default thresholds.


Per-Patient Thresholds

You will also be able to set and change custom thresholds for any patient as needed. When a patient has an At Risk reading, our team will review the reading result to determine if this is typical for the patient or whether a phone call is indicated. If a patient has a Critical reading, we will call the patient and determine if the situation needs to be escalated to the ordering provider. All our phone calls with patients and providers are done on our secure recorded platform.
