Home Sleep

A good night’s sleep – at home.

The Challenge

Approximately 70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders, of which Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) is the most common1. Those with unmanaged Sleep Apnea are six times more likely to miss a full day of work and three times more likely to have an auto accident or work injury2. They are twice as likely to have a stroke and more likely to be obese, develop high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes. These issues cause them to incur progressively higher annual healthcare costs.

Diagnostic testing for sleep disorders is primarily done in high-cost settings such as inpatient facilities and sleep centers.

  • More than 80% of people with OSA go undiagnosed3

  • 70-80% of sleep tests are conducted in high-cost sleep facilities4

  • Fewer than 50% of patients adhere to their prescribed sleep therapy5

What is Sleep Management?

After diagnostic testing for a sleep disorder, the patient receives a comprehensive plan to manage their condition. This plan is called “sleep management.” The goal of this plan is to manage and treat the patient’s sleep condition, which begins at diagnosis and follows the patient through therapy and adherence.
