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."

Telehealth & Remote Services Update: Medicare Waiver Expansion Impact

Healthcare providers have found themselves under immense pressure to maintain continuity of care during the COVID-19 crisis, but many aspects of the U.S. health system were not designed to support such an effort. To help providers more effectively deliver care that will not only keep patients healthy but also in their homes and away from hospitals, which are largely focused on treating COVID-19 patients, government agencies, commercial payers, and other healthcare organizations have worked to change the system. Approaches taken include the creation of new and expansion of existing telehealth and remote tools and support, including remote patient monitoring (RPM). For example, we have seen federal waivers and revised state regulations that greatly expand the ability for healthcare providers to deliver telehealth and remote services; commercial payers revising their policies to pay for these services, and healthcare companies offering resources to help providers more effectively leverage telehealth and remote services during the crisis. If your practice is considering launching or growing an existing telehealth and/or remote services program during the pandemic, here are five things you should know.

Performing Annual Wellness Visits Via Telephone

The annual wellness visit (AWV) is an important tool for providers to track and help manage the health and wellbeing of their Medicare patients. Social distancing is crucial to combat our current health crisis, but so is maintaining continuity of care with your most vulnerable patients. Fortunately, Medicare understands the importance of the AWV, and included it in it's initial §1135 waiver so that it can be performed entirely via telehealth on any Medicare beneficiary. As of 4/30/20, Medicare further waived restrictions, and now allows Annual Wellness Visits to be conducted via audio-only telehealth (i.e. over the telephone) for the duration of the waiver.
