CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Itamar Medical and Somnoware Healthcare Systems have agreed to align their technology, marketing and business efforts to drive new growth opportunities. Through a strategic alliance, the companies will combine their hardware and software, enabling customers to transform delivery of care, reduce cost and improve productivity, according to a press release. “Integrating Itamar’s home sleep testing device, WatchPAT, with Somnoware’s proprietary cloud-based platform will accelerate the adoption of an integrated care delivery platform—an industry concept that uses workflow automation software and a care coordination platform to break down today’s device- and provider-centric silos of data-gathering and communication,” the release states.
