What is Remote Therapeutic Monitoring?

The nature of the data collected, more specifically therapeutic for RTM versus physiological for RPM.

RTM can be used for non-physiological medical devices like those used to support medical adherence (e.g., smart pill reminder systems) and medication symptom/adverse reaction applications.

Essentially, any information that a medical device — including software that fits the definition of a medical device — can collect that is not physiological can be collected and billed for under RTM.
