Remote Patient Monitoring
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) with 24/7 data management improves the care of chronically ill patients and gives them peace of mind. In addition to benefiting the patient, RPM can be a source of revenue for practices.
Here is what you should look for in a service:
- Daily review of results
- Daily outreach to patients with non-critical alerts
- 24/7 outreach by RNs for critical alerts as defined by providers
- 24/7 hotline to answer patient questions and triage

What is RPM?
It’s a system where an electronic device is given to a patient to wear for measuring their vitals and transmitting that information to their doctor’s office. These regular updates allow nurses to catch early warning signs of potential health complications.
How Does It Work?
TriageLogic offers RPM device review through our nurse call center. Nonclinical staff check in with patients to make sure that their devices are working properly, while our experienced, registered nurses review vitals for abnormal values. If any concerns are noticed, a nurse calls the patient to triage the situation, and provides any necessary instructions to the patient based on your customized orders and protocols – at-home care, an in-office follow-up appointment, or emergency intervention.
TriageLogic works with you to create custom protocols for the conditions specified by your devices. You also receive data analytics and reports about patient calls, outcomes, and more.
Benefits to Patients
In the United States, six in 10 adults suffer from some form of a chronic disease, such as obesity, diabetes, or heart disease. Together, they account for 75% of the $3.5 trillion spent on healthcare each year. It’s estimated that widespread adoption of remote patient monitoring could save the U.S. as much as $6 billion annually.
Many of these devices are able to capture data that is not necessarily observed by the patient, even before physical symptoms are present. These regular readings help providers see the “bigger picture” when it comes to a patient’s condition and outcome, and allows for greater value-based care.
In turn, this lowers the cost of care for unnecessary ED visits.

Reimbursement for Doctors
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services covers some costs for patients who use remote monitoring technologies. CMS will reimburse doctors for the cost of the RPM device, and the time it takes to monitor patient vitals. Outsourcing this data review to TriageLogic allows your practice to earn extra income.
