To help sleep providers maximize their resupply revenue, post-acute software company Brightree LLC unveiled automated resupply enrollment for patients that are managed by both Brightree and the AirView system from sleep equipment maker and Brightree parent company ResMed.
Using the automated feature, when a patient has achieved compliance on positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy, AirView alerts the Brightree Connect program to enroll the patient into the resupply program. In addition to reducing costly manual processes, this integration maximizes resupply enrollment, and ostensibly better compliance.
The feature is available to HMEs that have integrated their Brightree Connect and ResMed AirView accounts. Currently, more than 5 million patients are monitored via AirView.
“This is a huge time-saver for us,” said Mindy Carlton, HME business manager at Deaconess Home Medical in Evansville, Indiana. “This kind of automation helps us grow our resupply business and provide great patient care.”
The integration’s other features include:
- Automated data entry while registering Brightree patients in AirView.
- Automated invitation for patients to sign up for myAir, ResMed’s self-monitoring app.
- Automated filing of AirView compliance reports in Brightree Document Management.
- Automated tasking when patients achieve compliance.
“Automation is the key to driving a smarter, faster healthcare system and ultimately healthier patients,” said Matt Mellott, Brightree president and CEO. “We’re excited to give HMEs the power of automated resupply enrollment to increase their efficiency and revenues, and most important, ensure that every patient gets the supplies they need for the best possible therapy experience.”
