Sleep Therapy

What a year it has been for the sleep therapy market: a rapidly changing sector of the HME industry driven by technological innovation and the desire to give patients the sleep they deserve. In 2019 alone, several companies introduced a wide variety of products and services for sleep apnea patients searching for more comfortable and effective options to treat their conditions. For providers, navigating the market means finding products that can satisfy patients’ need for data and mobile care while also driving more revenue through resupply programs.

Luckily, manufacturers continue to introduce products that meet the criteria. CPAP masks and machines are becoming more portable by the day, helping patients maintain their therapy regimen as they travel through airports and train stations. At the same time, some patients who struggle with compliance are finding success through alternative treatment options such as EPAP devices. Compliance rates are also improving through patient education services focused on their treatment success.

In addition, sleep therapy providers are stepping up their game when it comes to mobile monitoring of sleep data. Bluetooth connectivity is available on most CPAP systems, allowing patients and their doctors to view treatment progress and suggest therapy changes if necessary. Providers would be smart to keep up with the latest updates on remote monitoring technology, which is crucial to many patients as they decide which product to select.

From patient coaching services to portable CPAP masks, here is a sampling of the products that could help grow your sleep business.
