CleveMed, Cleveland, OH – October 29, 2015 – Welltrinsic, a leading organization representing a large group of sleep centers and physicians nationwide and CleveMed, a leading provider of cloud-based home sleep apnea testing (HSAT) solutions, entered into an agreement today to expand Welltrinsic’s membership services. Welltrinsic will offer HSAT solutions to its Welltrinsic members using CleveMed’s technologies and mail order programs exclusively. In addition to buying monitors at competitive pricing, Welltrinsic members will now have access to high quality HSAT acquisition services (SleepView Direct) that will allow them to quickly acquire home studies without incurring any upfront cost or changing their workflow.
“This new service offers our members a great opportunity to increase patient access to high quality sleep medicine care. We are pleased to be working with CleveMed given it’s long track record of excellent service and first-rate technology,” said Dr. Lawrence Epstein, Welltrinsic President and CEO.
“We are very excited about the relationship with Welltrinsic as it will enable sleep centers and practices to add or expand their HSAT programs quickly and cost effectively. Additionally, with CleveMed’s increasing customer base, Welltrinsic’s national network of physicians and centers will have the opportunity to expand their reach by participating in the sleep care of patients originating from outside of their standard referral pathways,” said Hani Kayyali, CleveMed president.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the most prevalent form of sleep apnea, is a repeated interruption of normal breathing during sleep due to a collapse of the upper airway. It is estimated to impact as many people as asthma and diabetes; yet, up to 80 percent of the population with the disease remain undiagnosed and untreated. Moreover, OSA leads to serious health and economic consequences. Numerous studies link OSA to major chronic diseases such as stroke, heart failure, diabetes, obesity, hypertension and increased odds of serious car crash injuries.
Welltrinsic is a national network connecting sleep physicians and accredited centers to deliver high-quality, integrated care. In addition to the home sleep apnea testing service available with CleveMed, Welltrinsic Sleep Network offers a full range of services for sleep physicians and sleep centers, including clinical expertise, positive airway pressure (PAP) therapy management, behavioral therapy for insomnia, sleep positioning devices, and practice development and data management solutions, with the vision of improving the quality of care for sleep disorders patients.
