In fact, since 2013, CMS has been focusing on expanding the government's clinical reimbursement for organizations provided to patients outside the process of clinic or hospital activities. Since 2020, CMS has begun to pay doctors to remote patients - any individual suffering from a single high-risk health-related emergency, such as diabetes or hypertension. This is to oppose the proposal to obtain compensation only for different stability conditions. In fact, remote medical monitoring has existed since the mid-1970s, but it has become the focus of attention during the pandemic and is facing rapid choices. Everyone is shocked by the key and unlimited advantages of remote patient monitoring.
TRANSTEK remote medical monitoring is an integral part of remote patient monitoring (RPM) devices that including BP cuff, weight scale, BGM and activity tracker, the measurement data meet needs of reimbursement by CMS.
Routine blood glucose detection is a basic part of diabetes care. Experts asked diabetes patients to visit the center every 3-6 months to measure their HbA1c regularly. Diabetes patients can use fingertip puncture method, test paper and multi-function glucose meter to store glucose readings at home to test their blood sugar independently and continuously. These daily blood glucose readings are stored in the bluetooth blood glucose meter, and these information can be transmitted to the consideration group remotely or during the follow-up center visit. Remote monitoring of diabetes patients enables doctors to provide more personalized care because they can respond quickly to continuous information.
The remote medical monitoring also urges diabetes patients to pay more attention to their own health, as well as the impact of diet and exercise on health. For example, patients can investigate and understand the readings after dinner, which can clarify how they may have to change their dinner to further improve their blood sugar level.
RPM devices can be used to improve security. People with dementia often fall. Experts use RPM sensors or important portable devices such as walking aids and walking sticks to screen the increase of linear speed, number of steps, accurate speed and numerical calculation of patients to predict the possibility of falls. These gadgets are equipped with the following functions (GPS, WiFi or radio frequency) to find the lost elderly.
Remote medical monitoring has proved to be beneficial in helping patients maintain heart health. Cardiologists currently use cutting-edge instruments, such as wearable heart screens connected to mobile phones, to make it easier to screen patients with persistent heart disease. These small tools outline the electrical movement of the heart when the patient is working, dozing or exercising. For example, TeleRPM BPM Gen 1 wireless blood pressure monitoring measures systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure and pulse rate, and then quickly transmits accurate real-time data to the healthcare platform through encrypted 4G wireless technology. Compared with the one-time consequences of ECG regulatory facilities, these information enable experts to have a broader view of the long-term health of patients.
