Sleep Therapy

Sleep Therapy has been anything but boring over the last 16 months. Just as sleep providers started to get their footing during the COVID-19 public health emergency, along came the Philips device recall. In both cases, sleep providers have had to deal with uncertain supply chains while serving both existing patients and onboarding new ones.

Moreover, when it comes to the public health emergency, providers of sleep therapy equipment and services had to develop new procedures and use new tools to safely and effectively provide products and services to patients and coordinate with referrals.

While all that was happening, providers have to keep up to speed with the market changes and innovations that have always been part and parcel of the sleep therapy market. While the public health emergency or a product recall might have created gaps in some supplies, new masks, accessories, and other devices and products have been getting released.

Likewise, there are a variety of business services and software offerings on the market to help sleep therapy providers run more efficient businesses, help their referral partners introduce new patients to therapy, and ensure optimal outcomes.

So, bearing all that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the products and services that have recently hit the market:
