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 incur incremental annual healthcare costs due to increased risk of high blood pressure, increased risk of heart disease, increased risk of diabetes & obesity, and double the risk of stroke.

Even with significant cost to plans, diagnostic testing is primarily done in high-cost settings such as inpatient facilities and sleep centers.

  • Over 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
