Redefining Remote Care: Vianova’s RPM and CCM Take Center Stage
Vianova’s Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) and Chronic Care Management (CCM) platforms have garnered attention for their potential to transform healthcare delivery. By leveraging these innovative solutions, healthcare providers can enhance patient engagement, improve monitoring capabilities, and streamline clinical workflows. In this article, we delve into the features and benefits of Vianova’s RPM and CCM platforms, focusing on their ability to drive value in care coordination.
A Strong Foundation: Chronic Care Management (CCM)
Chronic Care Management (CCM) has emerged as an effective strategy for delivering continuous, comprehensive, and connected healthcare. The American Academy of Family Medicine (AAFP) highlights the value of CCM in engaging patients more frequently between office visits, leading to personalized and efficient remote care. By facilitating timely interventions and comprehensive support, CCM contributes to improved patient outcomes and a more proactive approach to healthcare.
Seamless Integration with Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM)
Vianova’s RPM platform complements CCM by providing unique insights into patient health between visits. RPM offers real-time access to vital signs such as blood pressure, weight, blood sugar, and blood oxygenation. This data empowers care teams to make informed decisions about managing chronic conditions and adjusting prevention plans. RPM eliminates the burden of manual tracking for patients, ensuring accurate and consistent monitoring without disrupting their daily lives.
Synergy Between RPM and CCM: Clinical and Financial Benefits
The synergy between RPM and CCM extends beyond clinical advantages, presenting a compelling financial proposition for healthcare practices. Both RPM and CCM services have their own distinct set of CPT® Codes, enabling practices to bill for both offerings. However, it’s important to note that the same minutes of clinician time cannot be counted towards both services. Additionally, RPM offers flexibility in patient eligibility, as it does not require a specific diagnosis like CCM does. This flexibility ensures that a broader range of patients can benefit from remote monitoring.
Addressing Barriers to Remote Care Adoption
While remote care adoption is on the rise, concerns about barriers persist among healthcare providers. Vianova’s RPM platform addresses several of these barriers, making it an attractive option for enhancing patient care:
Staffing Resources: Daily patient monitoring requires clinical resources, but Vianova offers a solution through monitoring services. Outsourced nurses act as an extension of your staff, conducting monitoring, health coaching, and patient communication. This collaboration streamlines the monitoring process and keeps your team informed.
Patient-Friendly Technology: Cellular RPM devices simplify patient engagement. Devices like cellular blood pressure cuffs and scales are easy to use, automatically transmitting readings without the need for smartphones or high-speed internet. Patient communication can occur through phone calls, eliminating the requirement for video chat.
Affordability: Medicare coverage for RPM ensures that cost is not a barrier for patients. Cellular devices operate without additional expenses, as they connect to any cell tower at no charge to the patient.
User-Friendly for Staff: Vianova’s RPM solutions prioritize user-friendliness. Integration with your existing EHR system and outsourced monitoring staff ensures a seamless experience for your team, eliminating the need to learn a new system.
Vianova’s RPM and CCM platforms offer a powerful combination to enhance patient care and clinical efficiency. By seamlessly integrating remote patient monitoring with chronic care management, healthcare providers can unlock new opportunities for proactive, personalized, and effective remote care. As the healthcare landscape continues to evolve, Vianova’s innovative solutions pave the way for improved patient outcomes and streamlined practice operations.
