Chronic Care Management with Home Monitoring FAQs
Remote Physiological Monitoring is the use of digital technologies to monitor and capture medical and other health data from patients and electronically transmit this information to your healthcare providers for assessment and, when necessary, recommendations and instructions. Remote Physiological Monitoring allows your providers to continue tracking healthcare data for you once you are discharged. It also encourages you to take more control of your health.
Your providers can use remote physiological monitoring to collect a range of patient health data, including blood pressure, vital signs, weight, heart rate, blood sugar levels, and physical activity.
We commonly use blood pressure monitors, weight scales, cardiac monitors, and blood glucose meters to remotely monitor patient health. Pulse oximeters will likely become more common due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Benefits of remote physiological monitoring include:
- Keeping patients with multiple conditions healthy
- Reducing the number of hospitalizations
- Reducing readmissions
- Reducing hospital lengths of stay
- Reducing patient, provider, and overall healthcare costs
- Permitting older and disabled individuals to remain at home longer and delay or avoid moving into skilled nursing facilities
Remote physiological monitoring is considered a specific subset of telehealth. You can use the phrase ‘telehealth’ to refer to remote physiological monitoring, but telehealth can also refer to many other types of remote healthcare services. Remote physiological monitoring is the use of a device for interaction between you and your provider. Read more about our telehealth services.
There are a wide range of services that can be provided under chronic care management for Medicare beneficiaries with multiple chronic conditions. While the list below is not exhaustive, it provides examples of the types of services that we can provide:
- Care management and transitional care management services
- Communicating with the Medicare beneficiary in person, by phone, or electronically for care coordination
- Community resource referral and linkage
- Coordinating community and social support services
- Disease self-management education and support

Before we can offer Chronic Care Management services, there must be an initiating face-to-face visit with a Medicare qualified provider for new patients or patients who have not been seen within one year prior to the starting Chronic Care Management services. The initiating visit can be an annual wellness visit, an initial preventive physical exam, transitional care visit, or other qualifying evaluation and management visit. This visit is not part of Chronic Care Management services and is billed separately.
Chronic care management can benefit you if you have multiple chronic conditions that are expected to last a year or more. We help patients with conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, lupus, multiple sclerosis, and sleep apnea to understand their conditions and live successfully with them.
