Reviewing data from a Neofect Device
Depending on the device and amount of data available, it may be possible to assign codes related to the review of data. This includes data that is either collected from the patient’s home-use device, or from a clinic. Since Neofect devices provide data used in clinical evaluations, as well as physiologic data, the codes for data monitoring could potentially be assigned.
