How Remote Patient Monitoring Works

RPM has five basic steps. If you want, BlueStar can do 98% of the work for you. Or, we can customize the workshare between your staff and our team.

1

Enrollment

The practice decides which patients are most appropriate for RPM, and notifies BlueStar via e-mail, prescription pad, or EMR entry.

2

Activation

BlueStar will program the equipment, test it, ship it, and train the patient on its use. Then we’ll notify the practice.

3

System

BlueStar will maintain the hardware, software, communications, and support to make the data flow from the patient to her family, our nursing staff, and the practice.

4

Monitoring

Our staff of US-based RN’s will review data daily, and engage with the patient to ensure compliance using our proprietary methods.

5

Follow-up

If the data shows a need, we’ll notify the practice, which will followup for additional (billable) care. We’ll provide the practice all data required for EMR entries and auditable billing.

Financial Benefits to Your Practice

We GUARANTEE profit and positive cash flow for your RPM program. The numbers below are national averages. Contact BlueStar for an exact financial calculation based on your specific practice location and size.

All the Devices You’ll Need

BlueStar provides a wide variety of FDA-approved devices, some of which are shown here. All wirelessly transmit data to the cloud. If you have a specific device need, we can handle it.

Patient Engagement is Key!

Remote Patient Monitoring only works if the patient is engaged and compliant. BlueStar’s proprietary Patient Engagement System makes that happen.

Personal
Activation

We program and ship directly to the patient, and our care team immediately calls afterward to help her set it up and use the equipment and software. We’ve been doing this for years, and are accustomed to helping older adults employ these simple technologies..

Continuous Engagement

Our proprietary system engages the patient with frequent announcements, messages, and surveys. When they lapse in compliance, our system connects and re-engages through e-mail, text, phone, and alternate contacts.

American RN Attention

Our US-based team of qualified healthcare professionals, led by registered nurses, engages nearly daily with the patient, for encouragement, advice, and connection with the clinical team as necessary.

Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to commonly asked questions
None. You buy no equipment; you have no long-term contracts; you have no financial obligations whatsoever. You can quit the program at any time, with no penalty.

Our full-service suite does 98% of the work associated with RPM—you simply tell us which patients you’d like to enroll, and we do everything else. However, if you want to adjust the workflow or workshare or process to meet your specific needs, we can do that.

We generally say that if the practice does nothing but let BlueStar run the program, the practice will generate about $30 per patient per month in new profit. If the practice incorporates telehealth using the HIPAA-compliant video tablet that we provide to RPM patients, the practice can generate $100 per patient per month in new profit. For an analysis of your specific practice, e-mail BlueStar and we’ll send you one.
Each month, BlueStar will provide a comprehensive report showing which patients qualified for reimbursement for which CPT codes. We can document this in your EMR if desired. It will provide all the information for your billing team to submit directly to CMS.
If you choose, you can enroll your first patient tomorrow. We have a standard 2 to 4 week onboarding process, but can speed it up, or slow it down, as you desire.
