R, version 4.1.1 and in Traditional Medicare SAS, version 9.4M7 were used for analysis. Remote patient monitoring (RPM), the collection by patients of physiological measurements that are automatically sent to Results | From February 2020 to September 2021, general RPM their health care practitioners, has been touted as a promis- use per month increased from 91 to 594 claims per 100 000 ing tool for improving chronic disease management.
