Remote Patient Monitoring & Chronic Care Management
Offer effective ongoing care services, reduce hospitalizations for your patients, and create additional revenue for your practice
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM)
What is RPM?
Remote patient monitoring (RPM) allows you to monitor your patients’ chronic disease or acute illiness in real-time via connected monitoring devices and make quicker and more impactful treatment decisions.
60% of Americans currently live with at least one chronic condition, and 40% live with two or more, making meaningful chronic disease management a critical need in healthcare. There’s a shift in the industry from intervention to prevention, and RPM is part of that shift.
Need proof that RPM improves the quality of patients’ lives when living with chronic disease? The Veterans Association found that, using RPM technologies, patients saw a 25% reduction in bed days and 19% reduction in hospital admissions.
Now that’s meaningful disease management!
How RPM Works
ViTel’s RPM solution is a secure HIPAA compliant technology platform that meets CMS guidelines.
- Step One: Patient receives Bluetooth-enabled remote monitoring medical devices from ViTel.
- Step Two: When the patient uses the device, the data is uploaded to a secure ViTel server.
- Step Three: The ViTel Care Coach reviews measurements and results in real-time to share with the patient's provider team.
- Step Four: Coordinate any treatment plan changes with the Care Coach based on any changes or trends in RPM data collection.
- Step Five: Provide better care while cutting down on office visits with proactive treatment.
Chronic Care Management (CCM)
What is CCM?
Chronic care management is the consistent treatment for chronic conditions ranging from mental health disorders to diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, Alzheimer's, or any chronic condition that persists six months or longer.
Since six in 10 Americans live with one or more chronic diseases, the ability to easily work with their physician on managing symptoms and improving quality of life is an essential facet of the healthcare system. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recognize the need for physicians to effectively provide chronic care management, and in response have developed new CPT codes to reimburse physicians for preventative medical services.

What Patients Have to Say About RPM
Note: Names have been changed to protect patient privacy.
Mrs. Jane Doe is a 92 year old widow diagnosed with Diabetes and Hypertension.
She lives alone and has a private caregiver that comes in daily to help her. Her caregiver says the RPM equipment (BP Cuff, Blood Glucose, Pulse Ox) was very easy to set up and then use. It was very helpful that the blood glucose monitor came with the lancets and testing strips already with the equipment. The process made things much easier for since the readings automatically upload for the physician to use.
Mrs. Jane Doe is a 76-year-old with COPD, Hypertension, and Hyperlipidemia.
She lives alone and shortly after receiving her equipment the Health Coach reached out to her to help her get the equipment set up. She was surprised that the set up was such an easy process. Using the RPM equipment to take her vitals readings was very user friendly and the results were obtained quickly. That the results uploaded automatically and directly to the physician was a huge convenience to her. She likes that the Health Coach is available anytime she has questions and can help to act as a bridge between her physician and herself.
Mr. John Doe is a 71 year old with Hypertension, Anxiety, and Alzheimer's Disease.
Patient struggles with remembering to take his vitals so having the Health Coach reach out to him with reminders is helpful. He gets very anxious with anything new outside of his usual routine but after talking with the Health Coach who helped him set up the equipment and instructed him how to use the equipment he felt so much more at ease. He stated the equipment is super easy for him to use on his own and it is not a time consuming process. He likes how the results are immediate available for the physician to use. Knowing that if he runs into any issue he can reach out to his Health Coach is very comforting to him.
