Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) works as an extension to your practice that can help you monitor your patients continuously, improve patient outcomes, grow your practice profitability and more.
What is RPM?
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) is a Medicare-reimbursable service using technology to monitor patients´ health between visits. Commercial payers are also adopting RPM reimbursement and Medicaid covers in 27 states as well.
According to a Goldman Sachs report, RPM is estimated to have the potential to save the healthcare industry $200 billion a year. This type of care delivery allows the opportunity to transition from episodic care to preventative care.
RPM works as an arm to your medical office. Patients ses it as an investment in their health. This system allows you to take better care of your patients, improve their engagement with your practice and enhance conversations outside their appointment visits.
Why should you implement Remote Patient Monitoring in your behavioral health practice?
Behavioral health practices can take advantage of RPM. The 2022 State of Mental Health in America states that over half of adults with a mental illness do not receive treatment, totaling over 27 million adults in the U.S. who are going untreated.
This sets an opportunity for behavioral practices to implement RPM as a care delivery system to treat and understand more patients with mental illnesses. Many mental illnesses signs and symptoms can be detected and tracked by Remote Patient Monitoring.
RPM uses sensors and wearable devices to measure patients ´physiological data. It then transmits this data so providers can access it anytime and anywhere.
With RPM your practice will be able to detect vital sign changes signaling early mental health episodes or medication interactions and side effects. This care delivery system allows providers to monitor their patients and adjust their treatment plan, as needed continuously and remotely.
Also, among some other RPM benefits for practices are:
- Improves patient outcomes.
- Increases patient satisfaction.
- Reduces clinical workload and burnout.
- Achieves cost savings per patient.
- Grows practice profitability.
