Connected health for sleep apnoea

Shaping the future of connected health

ResMed connected solutions enable pro-active monitoring by healthcare professionals and result in more responsible patients who are involved and interested in their sleep apnoea therapy.

Boosting compliance

Increased CPAP adherence improves patient outcomes like daytime sleepiness and quality of life1.
Connected health solutions can help patients improve compliance and reap the benefits of their sleep apnoea therapy.

On average, myAir patients use their device for 46 minutes longer per night than other patients.2

Patients who self-monitor with myAir in addition to AirView telemonitoring increase their compliance even more.3

AirView allows you to identify patients who experience emergent or persistent CSA and may benefit from a switch from CPAP to ASV.5

Boosting patient engagement

Patient engagement tools like myAir and our AirMini app allow users to self-monitor their nightly sleep performance, track their progress, and stay motivated – even when they’re not being telemonitored.

“Patients will need CPAP therapy for the rest of their lives. Their need for therapy doesn’t change,but their life does. It’s not unusual for a patient to stop using their device in response to  a change in life circumstances. It is, however, a problem if I don’t find out about it for six months.”

Dr. Christine Cheval, San Salvadour Clinic, France9

Ensuring interoperability

AirView Integration solutions for sleep apnoea patients was designed to connect ResMed therapy device data to the IT systems most used by physician, hospital and home care provider (HCP) customers globally. The aim? Greater flexibility and improved workflows for better patient outcomes and more cost-effective healthcare.

Ensuring security and privacy

With connected health, our devices and software platforms aren’t just connecting sleep apnoea patients with their healthcare professionals or hospitals — they’re also connecting complex information delivery systems, commonly used by physicians. That’s because we’re IT innovators as well as healthcare innovators. Our patient management system, AirView, was built from the ground up to be secure. It complies with global healthcare privacy regulations, as well as national privacy laws. IDS, our hosting provider, is ISO 27001 certified.
