A Comprehensive Look at Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) and Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM) Reforms
In a momentous step towards enhancing patient care and advancing healthcare technologies, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) unveiled their annual Proposed Rule for the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) for calendar year 2024. Within this proposal, CMS introduces a series of groundbreaking alterations pertinent to the provision of remote physiologic monitoring (RPM) and remote therapeutic monitoring (RTM) services. This seismic shift comes hand-in-hand with the dynamic contributions of Vianova, a pioneering tech company at the forefront of healthcare transformation.
The Essence of RPM and RTM
Vianova’s suite of healthcare solutions, including Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM), Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM), and Chronic Care Management (CCM) platforms, is poised to redefine patient-centric care. Seamlessly blending technology and medicine, Vianova’s platforms empower healthcare providers to remotely monitor patients’ physiologic data and deliver personalized treatment strategies.
Clarifying Billing Prerequisites
A core feature of CMS’s Proposed Rule is the clarification of prerequisites for billing specific RPM and RTM codes. Vianova’s sophisticated technology aligns seamlessly with this change, ensuring accurate and efficient billing practices, while providing healthcare professionals the flexibility to focus on patient care.
Enabling Separate Payments for RPM and RTM
Vianova’s innovative platforms align perfectly with CMS’s proposal to allow separate payment for RPM and RTM during global surgery periods. This change facilitates enhanced flexibility for healthcare providers, who can now focus on leveraging Vianova’s platforms to provide continuous care and monitoring even during post-surgery periods.
Empowering PTs and OTs with RTM
Vianova’s commitment to promoting comprehensive care is in sync with CMS’s proposal to allow physical therapy assistants (PTAs) and occupational therapy assistants (OTAs) to provide RTM under the general supervision of physical therapists (PTs) and occupational therapists (OTs). This change underlines the value of Vianova’s RTM platform in extending the reach of care to encompass an even broader patient spectrum.
Expanding Primary Care Services with RPM
CMS’s proposal to include RPM in the definition of primary care services for the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) signifies a transformative shift. Vianova’s RPM platforms seamlessly integrate with this change, ensuring that more patients receive accurate and timely care, while aligning with the objectives of the MSSP.
Seizing the Digital Future
The CMS’s call for information on remote monitoring services, digital therapies, and digital cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) underscores the remarkable synergy between Vianova’s offerings and the evolving landscape of healthcare. Vianova’s tech-driven platforms are primed to answer CMS’s queries, offering cutting-edge solutions that combine data-driven insights and personalized patient care.
Your Voice, Our Impact
As CMS invites input from stakeholders, Vianova’s unique position as a trailblazing tech company in the healthcare domain offers a powerful platform to make voices heard. Providers, practitioners, and healthcare technology enthusiasts can seize this opportunity to advocate for advancements that align with Vianova’s vision of a patient-centric, tech-enabled healthcare ecosystem.
Vianova’s unwavering commitment to healthcare innovation aligns seamlessly with the proposed Medicare changes, as put forth by CMS. As the healthcare landscape continues to evolve, Vianova’s RPM, RTM, and CCM platforms stand as beacons of transformation, ensuring that patient care remains at the heart of every advancement.
