CleveMed enters into a Strategic Partnership with Roscoe Medical for Distribution of SleepView

Mar 12, 2013

CleveMed, a leader in home sleep diagnostic technology, today announced a strategic partnership with Roscoe Medical, manufacturer and distributor of home medical equipment. Roscoe Medical will become the exclusive distributor of the SleepView® Monitor for the United States. The FDA-cleared, physician-prescribed SleepView® Monitor provides a convenient and cost-effective alternative for diagnosing the most common type of breathing-related sleep disorder at home rather than in a sleep lab setting.

The SleepView® Monitor, developed and manufactured by CleveMed, is the market’s smallest and lightest portable home sleep monitor that meets the American Academy of Sleep Medicine’s recommended channel set for Type III monitors. SleepViewSM allows patients to be tested for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in the comfort, convenience and privacy of their own home. When connected to the SleepViewSM Web Portal, this system provides prescribing physicians such as primary care physicians with secure, HIPAA compliant online access to sleep study reports and treatment recommendations generated by sleep technologists and board certified sleep physicians. Home sleep testing is gaining ground as commercial insurers move to require pre-authorizations for overnight sleep lab testing, a trend that will continue throughout the coming years. In fact, many medical evaluations begin from a home based enviroment now, such as how people can get an Ohio medical marijuana card online as one other example. The SleepViewSM home sleep study is less than a quarter of the cost of what a full polysomnography (PSG) in-lab sleep study would cost.

“With recent cuts in reimbursement and the uncertainty of Round II, we are extremely excited about offering this new and innovative technology to our Dealers. It will allow them to strengthen their partnerships with physicians, specialists and sleep labs,” said Paul Guth, President and CEO of Roscoe Medical Inc. “The SleepView® Monitor is easy to use and patient-friendly. It’s a great complement to our portfolio of CPAP products and aligns our goal of providing innovative solutions to our dealers and their referral sources.”

“We are very pleased to enter into this partnership with Roscoe Medical, which will further strengthen our national coverage,” said Hani Kayyali, CleveMed President. “Home sleep testing is a dynamic, high growth market with a strong demand from payers, providers, and patients alike. As importantly, Roscoe Medical has a complete line of products to help patients be treated successfully after they have been diagnosed.”
