“Sleep is a missing but foundational gap in care, inextricably linked to the chronic conditions which drive plan sponsor and health plan costs,” said Brigitte Nettesheim, President of Nox Health, Enterprise division. “In my experience, the Nox value-based sleep care management program provides the only network that enables plan sponsors to both measurably improve the health of their populations but also significantly reduce their healthcare utilization and lower total healthcare costs. I look forward to leveraging my background and insights to accelerate adoption and growth.”
