Collecting physiological data few times per year and making medical decisions (medication, exercise, diet) VS Collecting physiological data daily and fine tuning medical decisions (medication, exercise, diet)
Reactive Care VS Proactive Care (old way is patient has an extreme event like hospitalization then doctor reacts to patient condition vs new way is doctor gets an SMS alert of an adverse physiological reading and modifies the care plan to keep the patient out of the hospital)
Old Medium of Delivering Care VS New Medium of Delivering Care (old way is ad hoc visit clinic waiting room few times per year vs new way patient gets right sized and real time care based on their physiological data which reduces unwanted waiting room visits and increases more appealing virtual visits)
Current Doctor (blind with limited data and limited clinical support outside of working hours) VS Super Doctor (empowered with a wealth of data / data driven, trends, notifications, correlations, and 24/7 clinical support from an RPM services vendor)
RPM is the use of digital technologies to collect and analyze physiologic patient data from one location and electronically transmit that information securely to providers in a different location. Patient data can include vital signs, weight, blood pressure, blood sugar, and/or pacemaker information.
We provide patients an EHR-connected monitoring device that monitors blood pressure, glucose, pulse ox, and/or weight. Devices send data automatically and digitally back to our platform and the provider's EHR.
When patients have abnormal readings, our 24/7 clinical team of nurses and MAs will call your patient, assess, and escalate only those cases that need to be escalated, minimizing disruption to you and your practice.
Our clinical team's interactions with your patients generates time towards the time-based RPM codes that you will bill Medicare (or other payer) monthly. We help you with billing details so that you can generate clean claims.

What to expect from RPM / Key KPIs to measure the success of your RPM PROGRAM
Hardware is one of the most important components of any RPM program. Since your patients will be using them on a daily basis to collect the physiological reading the RPM devices need to be extremely user-friendly, accurate, and reliable, particularly with our elderly patients. Look for simple to use technology that is plug and play straight out of the box.
You should never have to manage device inventory or purchase any devices up front, nor have to pay for device consumables.
Your RPM provider should also have a full product suite / wide range of remote patient monitoring devices, including but not limited to:
All of these devices should also work on the same technology (Bluetooth vs cellular).
For example, TELLI HEALTH (pictured above) offers a full suite of devices with cellular connectivity and rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and great customer support.
RPM is both technical and cumbersome, something that cannot be delivered independently by a healthcare professional, regardless of size and scope. It is important to choose an RPM vendor that will manage as many components of the RPM process as possible (and preferably ALL components of the RPM process). The essential components include:
Get valuable insight into how Accuhealth can increase measurable outcomes, from family clinics to FQHCs, there is a solution tailored to your needs.
In order for RPM to work you need to be able successfully scale. While putting one or two people on RPM might help those patients, it does not give you the total view of all your patients unless you have vast amount of your patient census subscribed to the service. If the program works for 1 or 2 patients, just Imagine the potential for hundreds of your patients.
What is the RPM providers patient engagement plan (to keep patients engaged for many months)? Without patient compliance/adherence, there is no RPM program.
Hear from patients using Accuhealth RPM
A lot of doctors are concerned that RPM is going to take over their life with 24/7 care, but the reality is that most patients take their readings between 5am and 5pm, typical clinic operating business hours.
Many clinics who have worked with providers with rigid billing terms and long term contracts. At Accuhealth we believe in partnerships and understand that sometimes claims are denied. You want a provider who will work with you to ensure your CPT code billing is effective and runs smoothly, as well as helping to process any rejected claims.
Specialization - pick an RPM provider who specializes in RPM! Many of the provider out there will claim to be RPM experts when in fact RPM is something they only do as an added service.
