Patient adherence and replenishment
Patient adherence to therapy can be the biggest challenge when treating sleep apnoea. Research indicates that patients and their families are more likely to adapt to and continue with therapy if they have proper equipment and training, an adequate number of caregivers, and a support system of experienced healthcare professionals.1-4
Improve patient compliance by using a multi-faceted approach
At ResMed, we agree that the best way to improve patient compliance is by using a multi-faceted approach, which includes:
Comfortable, easy-to-use and reliable equipment
ResMed’s therapy devices, masks and humidification technology cover a wide range of patient needs, providing every opportunity for successful therapy.
Effective patient education and consistent follow-up
This is vital to help maintain a patient’s confidence in the therapy they are receiving.
These and other ResMed connected health solutions are an easy and efficient way to proactively identify and address therapy adherence issues.
Equipment replacement and compliance
Timely equipment replacement is critical in helping patients stay compliant and comfortable during therapy.
Take the time to teach your patients when and how to replace components of their products, and how this relates to comfort and therapy effectiveness.
