Somnoware taps into Respironics’ EncoreAnywhere
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – Somnoware says Philips Respironics has agreed to give it direct access to all CPAP usage data stored in the EncoreAnywhere patient management system with consent from the physician or health system. As a result, the data will be accessible to independent and network practices via Somnoware’s new care management module. By having access to this data, sleep physicians can use Somnoware’s module to set up their patients with CPAP devices faster and provide them with better long-term care, the company stated in a press release. The module allows physicians to monitor the progress of a CPAP device order and, once a patient is set up on the device, monitor their compliance by reviewing real-time updates. Somnoware says its sleep management platform is being used by one in five sleep physicians. It has two versions of the platform, one for sleep physicians and one for sleep centers.
