Leveraging everbeat for remote patient monitoring

The everbeat system can help doctors implement a successful remote patient monitoring (RPM) program. RPM programs can provide physicians Medicare and private insurance reimbursement for monitoring aspects of their patients’ health between office visits. Specifically, CPT codes 99453, 99454 and 99457 can provide over $1,000 per year per Medicare / Medicaid patient requiring RPM services, if the physician leverages the everbeat system. The everbeat system provides the patient a SmartPhone application, an FDA-cleared blood pressure cuff, a scale and a not-yet-cleared ECG monitor; the physician can review patient health data from the devices through the everbeat web portal, which also supports their monitoring requirements and billing. We believe that such monitoring improves patient outcomes and reduces overall costs by catching and addressing potential problems much earlier.

The everbeat system

The everbeat system includes an interactive wearable monitoring wristband that connects to the user’s smartphone, and associated mobile app, via Bluetooth. The system also includes an FDA-cleared blood pressure cuff that meets the requirements of CPT code 99454, and a scale, both of which are integrated with the everbeat Smartphone application.

Easy-to-wear and integrate into everyday life, everbeat provides active heart monitoring and allows the user to record ECGs. These ECGs, along with blood pressure readings, weight, symptoms, steps and medication compliance can all be shared simply and securely with the user’s doctor and caregiver. Note that the ECG aspect of the everbeat product has not been cleared by the FDA.

Key features

  • ECG recording

  • Continuous heart rate monitoring

  • Active atrial fibrillation alerting

  • Reminders for medication, meals, and appointments

  • Activity monitoring

  • Optional connection to caregiver and/or doctor to share data and activity

ECG

The everbeat platform allows the user to record a single-lead ECG (Lead I) to determine if atrial fibrillation is potentially occurring. (This has not been cleared by the FDA.)

Patient Engagement

The everbeat platform drives improved patient engagement and adherence to their care plan through reminders, monitoring, and connection to their doctor and caregiver all in one, simple-to-use mobile app.

Remote Patient Monitoring

By having their patients record health data such as blood pressure or an ECG and then reviewing that data and taking action as appropriate, doctors can be reimbursed monthly by Medicare for RPM CPT codes including 994X9 (everbeat ECG not yet cleared by the FDA.)

Active Alerting Engine

The everbeat platform has a unique, active alerting engine (not cleared by the FDA) which monitors activity in conjunction with heart rate, and alerts the patient when possible atrial fibrillation is detected, prompting the user to record an ECG.

Comprehensive Data

Cardiologists can use everbeat with their patients to get a more comprehensive view of their heart health and behaviors between routine office visits.

A Long-Term Solution

Unlike traditional Holter monitors, designed for short-term, diagnostic use and often cumbersome for patients, everbeat offers a long-term care and monitoring solution that is easy to incorporate into everyday life.

The CDC estimates that between 2.7–6.1 million people in the United States have AFib, and the number of impacted people is expected to increase as the population ages.

Monitoring patients’ symptoms and adherence to a care plan is traditionally only possible at periodic doctor visits, and is reliant on the patients’ memory or manual record-keeping. Doctors can now get a comprehensive picture of patients’ ongoing heart health and behavior through everbeat.

everbeat empowers patients to take control of their health and daily care, and is easy to incorporate into everyday life.

Cardiologists are busier than ever and they are looking to increase practice efficiency and save time by reducing routine office visits and unnecessary phone calls.
