Sleep support community celebrates first year

Friday, December 6, 2013

SAN DIEGO - Wake Up to Sleep, an online support community for sleep apnea patients, has celebrated its first anniversary, ResMed announced Dec. 5. Patients can use the site for screening tools and symptom tests, or if they’re already using CPAP therapy, to monitor their therapy data and set goals. “Patients who are engaged in their own therapy are more likely to be compliant in the long run,” said Jim Hollingshead, president of ResMed Americas, in a release. “This decreases patient health risks, while also creating a smoother path to reimbursements for HMEs.”
