Frequently Asked Questions
What is Remote Patient Monitoring?
What data is collected via RPM?
Depending on a patient’s individual needs, RPM gathers key vital signs such as weight, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, temperature, and blood sugar. To collect that data, Maxwell Telecare supplies a digital portal and one or more of these devices: Blood Pressure monitor, Pulse Oximeter, Weight Scale, and (for diabetics) a Glucometer. Patient success can be achieved when starting with only a single device.
How will I know my patients transmitted vitals?
How do I know which patients are eligible for RPM?
Maxwell Telecare will assess your patient data (accessed through your EMR or provided to us through a flat file from your EMR) to review patient Medicare eligibility. Once the patients are identified, Maxwell Telecare will review the list with you to determine which patients can participate in the RPM program.
What are the benefits of using RPM?
The primary benefit of RPM is to identify clinical changes in condition before they become problematic. RPM programs may decrease ER visits, returns to the hospital, and complications of chronic illness by as much as 75%. Advantages also include:
- Patients experience fewer unnecessary doctor’s visits and increase proactive visits.
- Care teams can see patients’ vitals in real-time and recommend improved treatment options.
- Care teams can intervene early to adjust medications, modify behavior, or send a home-care nurse to visit.
- Fewer emergency room visits, fewer hospital admissions while lowering the risk of exposure to infectious diseases.
- Patients can live at home longer and enjoy an increased feeling of being in control of their health.
Is the portal and device easy to use? What if my patients need help?
Our technology is very easy to use. Patients access the portal through a smart phone or website and each device is separately connected to allow for direct transmission, regardless if the patient is in the portal. And if for any reason they experience trouble, dedicated customer support is available for them.
How will I get paid?
Maxwell Telecare will provide all devices and technology, the daily monitoring of patients, updating your clinical team, and all coding and billing. Maxwell will bill all services under your NPI number and will invoice you for our contracted rate per patient.
