MIAMI, FL / ACCESSWIRE / April 27, 2022 / HealthSnap, a Miami-based full-service Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) platform for virtual chronic disease management, announced today that it has been issued a Graphical User Interface (GUI) patent by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its innovative and visual RPM billing technology. The patented tool is available within HealthSnap's provider portal and simplifies the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) billing and compliance requirements for RPM CPT codes.
"Ensuring healthcare providers recognize optimal financial outcomes with HealthSnap's RPM program is imperative to long-term sustainability. We are proud to announce this major milestone in HealthSnap's product development and look forward to continuing to support our customers in a rapidly changing reimbursement landscape," said Chase Preston, Co-Founder, and Chief Product Officer.
HealthSnap's patented tool helps to automate tasks required to successfully document and receive reimbursement for RPM, such as patient enrollment workflows, clinical documentation automation, and visual CPT Code eligibility reporting, all of which enable providers to spend less time on compliance and clerical work and more time on providing patient care.
The company's patent, received during Q1-22, is for HealthSnap's visual billing automation feature, or "Eligibility Report," which displays a breakdown of each patient and the CPT codes eligible for RPM billing. This patent extends not only to RPM but to other codes as well including Chronic Care Management (CCM) billing codes. This newly patented tool was specifically designed to make it easy for healthcare providers to stay compliant with CMS guidelines to ensure seamless billing.
"This milestone marks HealthSnap's commitment to being a leader in virtual care management, and further sets the company apart as a best in class digital health platform serving the healthcare provider market. HealthSnap aims to make RPM and CCM simple, profitable, and scalable so that healthcare providers are able to provide virtual chronic disease management to patients, with long-term sustainability in mind," said Samson Magid, Co-Founder, and CEO.
