This is an overview of coding for Digitally Stored Data Services/Remote Physiologic Monitoring in the E/M section of the CPT book. There are more detailed articles for the individual codes on CodingIntel. Put the code in the search box to find them.
Medical practices can use these devices to monitor a patient’s health metrics, assess chronic conditions and make treatment changes. However, starting these services will require time and money, and equipment.
