Serving Sleep Patients During COVID-19 -- and After

Serving Sleep Patients During COVID-19Throughout the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE), HME Business has looked at the protocols and smart solutions providers have deployed to safely continue helping patients and work with referral partners during the pandemic. What happens after the crisis passes?

To answer this question, we focus on sleep therapy as a micro that might help define the macro given that sleep providers have deployed a variety of strategies and technologies during the PHE. Arturo Garcia, senior product manager for Connected Solutions at sleep therapy equipment maker ResMed, joined HME Business to explore how sleep therapy providers’ response during the COVID-19 pandemic might shape sleep care in the post-pandemic future.

This Viewpoint will provide the answers to:

  • How is the COVID-19 public health emergency impacting the care that sleep therapy providers are delivering to their patients?
  • What types of virtual care and digital solutions are available to help providers care for sleep patients under this public health emergency?
  • How do webpages and equipment setup guides fit into providing remote care to patients during the health emergency?
  • What tools are available to help minimize device handling?
  • What are some existing digital solutions that are available in the marketplace?
  • How many of these innovations that are getting deployed now are going to wind up being permanent changes in the sleep therapy marketplace?
