Medicare has long attempted to incentive providers to engage with elderly patients more proactively, versus traditional periodic visits when a patient’s condition has escalated. To drive this initiative forward, 2019 Medicare's Remote Patient Monitoring program compensate providers for recommending and reviewing data from products like 100Plus that monitor patients. 

Remote patient monitoring simply refers to the use of technology to record health data for review by a provider in a different location than the patient. It is a great resource for many physicians caring for patients who are suffering from chronic conditions, are less mobile, are at risk of falling, or are geographically separated from their healthcare providers.
