COVID-19 & Sleep: Going Forward

Sleep therapy provider Gary Sheehan re-joins the HME Business Podcast to catch up on what COVID-19 lessons providers have learned and how that will shape services going forward.

Sleep therapy is a perfect micro that defines the macro of HME when it comes to COVID-19. Sleep providers have had to ascend a steep learning curve to reshape how they safely and effectively provide products and services, and they have had to innovate new workflows and use new tools to get there.

Now that we are seven months into the public health emergency, where do we stand?

In the current episode of the HMEB Podcast, Gary Sheehan, MBA, CEO of Spiro Health, catches up with the podcast. He discusses sleep care, COVID-19, the lessons sleep providers have learned, and how those lessons might carry them into a post-pandemic future.
