Prevounce Announces New Platform to Simplify Remote Patient Monitoring

by Prevounce Health

Los Angeles, CA – May 4, 2020 Prevounce Health, creators of the Prevounce Care Coordination Platform, announced today the release of its powerful new Remote Patient Monitoring software and connected patient device program.

The Prevounce Platform provides easy management and provision of preventive services, chronic care management, and now remote patient monitoring (RPM). Prevounce integrates with many of the most popular electronic medical records systems (EMRs) and was designed to fit seamlessly into any medical practice workflow.

"We began development on Prevounce Remote Patient Monitoring around eight months ago, and could never have imagined how important RPM would become with the emergence of Covid-19," says Daniel Tashnek, founder of Prevounce Health. "Providers can implement our RPM program within 48 hours and then immediately start onboarding patients to provide important vital monitoring while reducing the chance of disease transmission in their offices. On top of the patient benefits, RPM can also be an important revenue stream for practices that are hurting from the current crisis."

Prevounce Remote Patient Monitoring includes the following:

  • Simple, turnkey patient enrollment.
  • Easy-to-use cellular devices requiring no setup for patients or practices.
  • Customizable alert system that provides real-time information while cutting out spam.
  • Direct Medicare eligibility verification through the Medicare HETS system.
  • Fully compliant time tracking system that ensures all Medicare requirements are met prior to billing.
  • Choice of devices that ship directly to provider offices or patients.
  • Expected revenue of around $1200 per enrolled patient, per year.

Prevounce Remote Patient Monitoring is compatible with PrevChek smart devices, as well as with many third-party devices and software. The system currently supports monitoring of blood pressure, weight, blood glucose and pulse oximetry. Support for spirometry and electrocardiography is forthcoming.

In conjunction with the launch of Prevounce Remote Patient Monitoring, Prevounce is offering a nearly risk-free program for practices that want to implement RPM during the current health crisis. For the first 100 offices on the new platform, Prevounce is offering the first month of RPM services, including providing cellularly connected devices to patients, for free. Once enrolled, a practice just has to identify 10 patients that would benefit from RPM. Prevounce will ship the devices directly to patients, educate patients on how to use the devices, train practice staff on how to use the Prevounce portal, and assist with coding and billing.

If, for any reason, a practice does not want to continue with Prevounce, a courier will pick up the devices to return to Prevounce. Participating practices can keep all RPM reimbursements for the first month whether or not they continue with Prevounce RPM.

"Prevounce has always focused on making preventive and wellness care easily accessible to providers and patients. Our RPM system was designed to add that same ease of use to remote monitoring and telehealth," Tashnek says. "We are proud that our new system allows providers to manage their most vulnerable patients virtually, helping protect clinical staff and patients without sacrificing patient care."

What Are Preventive Services and Why Are They Important?

For practitioners, preventive services, such as Medicare's annual wellness visit (AWV), are an important offering and should be a significant part of the day-to-day operations of every primary care practice. When furnished effectively and appropriately, preventive services are typically no cost to patients, encourage improved patient health and wellness outcomes, and increase practice revenue while decreasing practitioner risk — all while positively impacting our nation's out-of-control annual healthcare spending. 

Looking for a Medicare Annual Wellness Visit Template? Read This First!

If you came to this blog looking for instructions on setting up a Medicare annual wellness visit (AWV) template for your practice, you won't find that here. But don't go anywhere! We provide a link to a blog at the end of this piece that explains how to create an AWV template. The reason we put it at the end is because we think it's important to explain a few of the most significant reasons why your practice should not default to using a paper template or rigid electronic template (e.g., fillable PDF). Our guidance is largely centered around the fact that at its core, the AWV is a fairly complex set of requirements that have the potential to lead to compliance pitfalls. 

HCPCS G0438 and G0439: Background, Coding Tips, and Mistakes to Avoid

You schedule a patient's first Medicare annual wellness visit (AWV). The patient comes into your practice, or perhaps you meet via telehealth. You furnish the AWV, seemingly checking all of the boxes necessary to deliver this critical yearly appointment that helps prevent illness and get your practice paid. And yet a few weeks after submitting your claim to Medicare for the service, it's denied. The reason: You incorrectly used HCPCS code G0438.
