Integrate your RPM platform into your overall engagement strategy. Keep your care team from having to spend its time chasing down the 85 percent of patients who disengage once they return home by integrating your engagement platform with your portal and app strategy. Patients can then be guided to more information within your complete care ecosystem.

The last barrier is down
When the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued its final 2019 Physician Fee Schedule and Quality Payment Program, it created an unprecedented opportunity for any hospital or health system that wants to reduce unplanned 30-day readmissions. This landmark change opened the door to reimbursement for connected care services that enable providers to manage and coordinate care at home.

The doors to remote care management technology are now open wide, but it’s important to understand that technology alone doesn’t guarantee success. By adopting a strong patient engagement strategy, health systems and clinicians can drive better outcomes, create recurring revenue, and improve the patient care experience.
