Watermark Medical, Boca Raton, Fla, is launching WM SleepCare, a comprehensive sleep benefits management program. The Web-based program offers insurance providers and self-insured employer groups an “end-to-end” program to manage patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) that includes utilization oversight and compliance management.
“The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) made it possible for insurance providers to offer home sleep testing. We quickly recognized the opportunity to build a sleep benefits management program with tight controls and utilization oversight, something the insurance industry is rapidly embracing,” said Sean Heyniger, chief executive officer of Watermark Medical.
According to Watermark Medical, the system utilizes the company’s cloud-based platform that improves workflow, integrates therapy alternatives, and reduces the cost of health care delivery.
“We are transforming the entire industry to a more streamlined and cost-effective solution, while improving patient care,” said Charlie Alvarez, president of Watermark Medical.
