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."

4 Things to Know About Remote Patient Monitoring Reimbursement

If your practice is considering adding a remote patient monitoring (RPM) program, you will need to take a number of essential steps in advance to help ensure the success of the new program. These include everything from choosing the RPM system that will drive your program to developing an effective mechanism for educating patients on RPM. There is also the not-so-small matter of understanding how you will get paid for your services. Once you learn the nuts and bolts of remote patient monitoring reimbursement, you may decide to move from considering an RPM program to launching a program as soon as possible. Here are four things to know about remote patient monitoring reimbursement.

Launching or Growing RPM: 4 Remote Patient Monitoring Devices to Know

In a recent Medical Economics column, I shared some of the most significant updates concerning remote patient monitoring (RPM). Among them: Remote patient monitoring is now one of the more lucrative Medicare care management programs, thanks to an overhaul of the RPM CPT codes (99453, 99454, 99457, and 99458). Medicare is making it easier for practices to provide RPM services, and private payer coverage of RPM is growing. The COVID-19 pandemic has helped drive adoption and use of remote patient monitoring devices in healthcare. A rapidly growing number of patients are interested in virtual care services like RPM, their interest fueled by the health crisis. The column concluded by asserting that the stars have aligned for remote patient monitoring, and it is an optimal time to consider launching or growing RPM programs. Another motivating factor for practices is that they now have several choices of remote patient monitoring medical devices to offer patients and include in their programs. From these options, practices can select the devices that will best meet the short- and long-term care needs of their patients and maximize RPM programs’ revenue potential.

Quick Guide: Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) CPT Codes to Know

Thanks to an overhaul of CPT codes in 2020, remote patient monitoring (RPM) became one of the more lucrative Medicare care management programs essentially overnight. If 100 patients are enrolled in an RPM program and each receives the minimum care management services each month, that will generate annual reimbursement approaching $150,000. One of the most important steps practices must complete to capture this reimbursement is proper coding of their remote patient monitoring services. This Prevounce Quick Guide outlines the current remote patient monitoring CPT codes and shares some tips for proper RPM coding.
