Achieving 100% COVID Readiness with Chronic Care Telehealth
Chronically ill patients in the US account for 76% of all physician visits. They are also the most susceptible to COVID and COVID-related illnesses. With COVID variants on the rise, telehealth and remote patient monitoring (RPM) are essential to keeping these patients safe, while providing quality care and improving outcomes.
In addition, studies have shown that remote patient monitoring improves patient self-management and leads to earlier interventions. It can also reduce emergency hospital visits 30%. In 2015 Medicare began reimbursing clinicians for using remote patient monitoring technology to manage chronically ill patients with 2+ chronic conditions with Chronic Care Management (CCM) codes. In more recent years, it also began reimbursing remote patient monitoring (RPM) services for a wider range of patients.
