How might we support sleep apnea patients and improve the compliance of ResMed devices?

Context

Sleep apnea patients struggle with getting a restful night’s sleep and the main treatment is a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device. These masks are uncomfortable and a hassle to wear; therefore, compliance is one of the biggest issues. Without compliance, insurance companies are unwilling to pay and patients are not able to get better quality sleep.

Problem

 

Sleep apnea patients struggle with consistent compliance with CPAP treatment which hinders their quality of sleep.

Solution

Encourage a healthier lifestyle for sleep apnea patients by providing access to relevant data, support from a community, and rewarding compliance.

Key Features

 

Patients often do use the CPAP machine; however, it is the consistency that is an issue. Patients use the CPAP machine only in reaction to their symptoms and forget the value until they need it again. How do we remind patients of the value wearing the mask to encourage consistent use of the device?
