Unlocking New Revenue Streams with Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM): A Guide for Chiropractors 


July 11, 2024

First, let’s understand what’s RTM.  

Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM) is a technology-driven approach that enables healthcare providers to keep track of their patients’ health and treatment progress remotely.  

It’s essentially a way for doctors to provide better care by closely monitoring how patients are doing, even when they’re not physically in the clinic. 

RTM is a game-changer for chiropractors for several reasons: 

  • New Revenue Streams: Chiropractors can now be reimbursed for the non-clinic time they spend driving improved patient outcomes. The allopathic industry has been doing this for years. It’s time for every chiropractor to step up and be part of the digital health revolution!  

  • Enhanced Patient Monitoring: With our patented “Smart RTM” technology, for the first time, we can see patient behaviors throughout their entire clinical journey. Want to know if patients are doing their exercises? We can show you. Want to know if patients are feeling better, worse, or the same after their exercises? We can show you. Want to know your patients’ exertion levels during their exercises? We can show you. 

With EMBODI, we make it easy to provide RTM and submit for these services with built-in documentation. Based on our reimbursement data, you only need to have 8 patients engage on the platform, and it pays for itself. 

How Does RTM Work? 

There are specific CPT codes that healthcare providers can bill for RTM services: 

  • CPT 98975: Setup and education of RTM software devices. 
  • CPT 98977: Device supply and ensuring patient compliance for at least 16 days in a 30-day period. 
  • CPT 98980: Initial 20 minutes of professional time spent on RTM data management and patient communication per month. 
  • CPT 98981: Additional 20 minutes of RTM data management and communication. 

These codes allow chiropractors to be compensated for the time and resources they use in remotely monitoring their patients, making healthcare more accessible and efficient for everyone involved. 

Why RTM Matters for Your Practice 

  • Closer Patient Monitoring: RTM facilitates real-time health tracking, allowing for timely adjustments to treatment plans based on patient-reported outcomes. 
  • Streamlined Operations: RTM introduces efficiencies by automating data collection and analysis, reducing manual tasks, and enhancing overall practice management. 
  • Personalized Patient Engagement: Engage patients through personalized care plans, fostering adherence and improving health outcomes. 
  • New Revenue Streams: Leveraging RTM allows chiropractors to be reimbursed for digital value delivered to patients, enhancing profitability. 

RTM is not just a technological advancement; it’s a pivotal shift towards more personalized and efficient chiropractic care.
