What is RPM?
Remote patient monitoring is the collection and analysis of patient physiologic data that are used to develop and manage treatment plans related to chronic and/or acute health illnesses or conditions. While the Dignio Solution allows for capture of traditional RPM data we take it a step further to allow for collection of data related to validated health questionnaires, patient-provider communication, and the creation of multidisciplinary team care plans.
RPM codes are considered Evaluation and Management (E/M) services meaning only physicians or non-physician practitioners who are eligible to bill Medicare can submit for reimbursement.
RPM services can be provided by physicians, other qualified healthcare professionals (pharmacists, nurses, etc.) or clinical staff (medical assistants, technologist, therapists, etc.) under the general supervision of the physician.
(Practices cannot bill more than 60 minutes of care management services per calendar month.)
