Bleep LLC, maker of the DreamPort® mask-less CPAP solution, is now available as a potential CPAP solution on SleepGlad’s AI-driven platform. SleepGlad is a cloud-based PAP mask fitting platform for HME and DME providers. The technology allows patients to take a “selfie,” and it will automatically scan the contours of their face and identify the best PAP solutions. The solution is manufacturer neutral, meaning providers can customize preferences including incorporating a list of manufacturers without being bound to one manufacturer’s product.
“Virtual PAP mask fitting has improved supply chain optimization for PAP set-up both for in-home and in-office visits. Physicians and respiratory technicians are turning to AI technologies like SleepGlad to ensure that PAP patients have a good fit out of the box,” said David Baxter, president of SleepGlad. “Remote setups save valuable time and money for patients, providers and payers and SleepGlad’s technology allows technicians and physicians to ensure that patient’s unique PAP fitting needs are met efficiently.”
In the US, diagnosed obstructive sleep apnea is increasing between 5 to 12 percent annually CAGR. Per the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM), the economic burden of untreated sleep apnea is ~$150B annually. CPAP compliance is critical to optimize patient health and healthcare costs.
Rebecca New, CEO of Bleep, LLC, stated, “Approximately 70 percent of non-compliant CPAP patients stated the top reason for not using their product was improper mask fit or complaints related to headgear. Our Dreamport® has no headgear or mask, is non-invasive, and finally offers patients the comfort and health outcomes that they deserve. We are thrilled to be validated by SleepGlad and look forward to helping CPAP users reach their health goals.”
