The world of RTM
RTM is not meant to replace in-person care, but rather - enable more care options
" Before RTM I always wanted to know if my patients were doing what I recommended. RTM gives me that insight and allows me to address any functional deficits before they become too debilitating. "
The RTM Process*

Frequently asked questions
What are the benefits to RTM?
In addition, the RTM codes provide PT, OT and ST professionals with innovation and flexibility, and reimbursements that recognize the valuable time spent on activities such as reviewing patient data, documentation, and fostering patient engagement, using cutting edge technology.
For patients they can receive support and improved care quality with RTM as it allows for more consistent monitoring, and includes communication between patients and their providers.
Does RTM replace in person visits?
RTM is not intended to replace in-person visits, but rather to supplement it as an adjunct to in-person care. RTM allows you to gather information about the patient in their natural environment, between in person visits, to foster the therapeutic alliance.
Which patients are relevant for RTM billing?
In general, patients relevant for billing Remote Therapeutic Monitoring codes with the help of OneStep are those who:
- Are ambulatory
- Have a smartphone and know the basics of using it (usually if they can text that's good enough)
- Could benefit from nudges and encouragement to perform their HEP
- Have been discharged from inpatient care. This can mean patients going to sub acute rehab, outpatient rehab, assisted living or home health.
We are happy to share from our experience and help you figure out which of your patients could be relevant. For more information on RTM codes, see our detailed guide.
What do I need to do to bill code 98977?
- On an iPhone - users will need to set the "Location" permission to 'Always allow', and toggle on the "Motion & Fitness" permission.
- On an Android - users will need to disable “Battery optimization” to let the app run in the background. This will not drain the phone battery, but will allow natural data to be collected even when the patient is not actively in the app.
