What is Remote Therapeutic Monitoring? (RTM)

In today’s ever-changing healthcare landscape, staying ahead of the curve is crucial for physiotherapy providers. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore the key aspects of RTM, including its benefits, codes, software requirements, and the potential it holds for both patients and healthcare providers.

What is Remote Therapeutic Monitoring?

Remote Therapeutic Monitoring involves leveraging technology to remotely monitor and manage patients’ health conditions. By collecting real-time data, analyzing it, and providing interventions without the need for in-person visits, RTM empowers patients to actively participate in their own care from the comfort of their homes.

The Benefits Of RTM

Several factors can influence exercise adherence to HEPs in physical therapy. Some of the key benefits include:

Key Billing Codes for RTM

Choosing The Right Software

To effectively implement RTM, providers need reliable software that meets regulatory requirements and streamlines the monitoring process. When selecting software, consider the following.

FDA Approval

Ensure that the software and any wearable devices associated with RTM have the necessary approvals from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Integration and Features

Look for software that integrates seamlessly with electronic medical record (EMR) systems and offers features such as tracking exercise progress, providing patient reminders, and enabling easy communication between patients and healthcare providers.

Compliance Tracking

The software should have the ability to track patient compliance with exercise programs, device usage, and interaction with the RTM system, facilitating accurate billing and reporting.
