How HRS Helps


 

Over 100 HRS partners launched their telehealth and remote patient monitoring programs with funds received from grants.

These programs are accomplishing many important goals including:

  • Diverting patients from the emergency department
  • Shortening hospital length of stay
  • Decreasing readmissions
  • Screening and monitoring for COVID-19 symptoms
  • Offering access to specialists
  • Reducing the barrier of geography
  • Decreasing total cost of care

HRS partners embraced, and continue to leverage telehealth tools included in the HRS platform such as virtual visits, text and chat features, bluetooth biometric monitoring, symptom surveys, medication reminders, education modules, wound imaging, and more, to achieve the goals outlined above.

Best Practices


 

These 5 suggestions will help you improve your grant process and save time when applying for grants and public funding.

Registrations can take several weeks to complete the required confirmations and validations.  Registering in advance will save time and stress when you decide to pursue a federal grant.  If you are already registered, check to ensure that all registrations are up to date and active.

Ensure that registrations (individual and organization) are complete in www.sam.gov   and www.grants.gov

If you plan to apply for some SAMHSA or any research-related grants, register at https://era.nih.gov/reg-accounts/register-commons.htm.  

Invest time in researching the following:

  • Grant opportunities
  • Recent grants awarded
  • Other recent information on funding available for telehealth or RPM
Review trends in what types of funding have been available or will be available soon.

Identify potential projects that would pilot new strategies, expand a successful service or program, or initiate services in a new area or with a new population.  Secure demographics and data to demonstrate a need for this project.  Examples include:

  • Census data
  • Aggregate patient data from your organization
  • Information from Community Health Needs Assessments or other public health assessments
  • Surveys your organizations have conducted.

Research and review similar projects other organizations and communities have implemented including any information available on populations served, strategies utilized, and impact of the project.  

Review the HRS Resource Library for case studies and impact information specific to RPM.

Grant funds are typically given for new projects or ideas, or expansions of existing successful programs.  One of the main questions that will need to be addressed in the proposal is how the organization will continue to support the program once grant funds are all spent.  Invest time and effort to provide a reasonable sustainability strategy in the proposal.  Using a multi-faceted approach with a combination of support strategies is usually a good idea. Some examples include

  • Billing/patient revenue
  • Cost-savings in other areas such as staffing
  • Other operational efficiencies
  • Partnerships that produce cost-savings

Prioritizing Reimbursement 


 

Healthcare organizations are embracing remote patient monitoring as a tool to improve patient outcomes and satisfaction. Not only can the quality of patient care be improved but by properly using CMS-approved CPT codes, clinicians can boost their ROI.

HRS boasts a team of reimbursement specialists dedicated to helping our partners receive reimbursement for RPM services. Through CMS, physician group and ACO partnerships, and private pay programs, HRS is helping our partners create a new revenue stream and enhance patient care with telehealth and RPM.
