In 2022, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced five new CPT codes for Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM), marking the entry of patient-reported, non-physiological data into coverage criteria. For 2023, CMS plans to further expand coverage to include a CPT code for cognitive behavioral therapy monitoring.

- Validating efficacy of telehealth
- Incentivizing technology-enabled, optimized, and cost-effective care
- Reducing barriers to care and encouraging shared decision making
