Digital health for Sleep Apnoea

The power of technology. The value of experience.

ResMed was one of the first companies to build cellular connectivity into each of our CPAP devices. We’re now a global leader in daily remote patient monitoring1, with more than 16 million cloud-connectable devices in our network.* And that number is growing every day.

Connectivity that works for you and your patients

Remote coordination modernises care with intuitive devices and intelligent supporting software. They give you an in-depth understanding of your patients’ PAP therapy and help to drive efficiencies and improvements in their care pathway.2

Can digital health drive efficiencies in sleep apnoea patient monitoring management?

When telemonitoring is used to follow the majority (70%) of clinic patients, care providers can increase by 25% their capacity to treat new patients3

AirView’s Action Groups feature filters your patients into actionable groups based on defined criteria while Care Check-In helps you to identify patients who are struggling with the therapy experience. These features help you to focus your energy where it’s needed.

Remote troubleshooting for devices can reduce processing and postage costs4 for incorrectly returned devices. It is more convenient for patients and limits the risk that their therapy will be disrupted.4

Clinics and home care providers spend considerable amounts of time explaining how CPAP treatment works and showing patients how to use and adjust their mask and machine. In-app coaching tools, available at the moment the patient needs help, can reduce that load.

Connected solutions can generate usage reports based on therapy data that is collected automatically from patients’ devices. This facilitates patient follow-up and, when relevant, can also be used to support social security reimbursement claims.

Telemonitoring enables physicians to keep a watchful eye on their patients’ condition at all times. This increase in low-level background monitoring reduces the need for in-person follow-up. In fact, one study showed that telemonitored CPAP patients visited their physician 2.3 times per year versus 4.5 times for those on traditional pathways while the frequency of DNAs (Did Not Attend) dropped to zero.5

The advantages of interoperability

As a healthcare provider, you are probably affected by a lack of interoperability between the different IT systems and solutions you use. This can result in difficulties keeping information in sync, duplication of effort and inconsistent data. Our integration solutions solve this challenge. Each of our digital health solutions and services is designed for interoperability, flexibility, effective workflows, improved outcomes and more cost-effective healthcare.

In a connected world, we’re making a world of difference
