Introducing OSAinHomeSM

The most important part of OSA care begins after the patients are prescribed CPAP. Sleep Centers of Middle Tennessee was the first practice in the US* to remotely monitor and coach CPAP patients to improve adherence. Over the years we’ve only gotten better.

*Using Philips Prototype Wireless Modems 2007

Sleep Centers of Middle Tennessee patients had 32% to 44% increased adherence.

Dear Physician,

Untreated obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) causes increased morbidity and mortality and lowers both cellular and humoral immunity. Therefore, patients at risk of OSA should not wait until the COVID-19 outbreak is over to undergo evaluation. Sleep Centers of Middle Tennessee can now diagnose and treat your patients suspected of OSA in just a few days without your patients having to leave their home.dr-william noah letter headshot

We call our new program OSAinHomeSM. We will interview your patient by phone and send out their single-use home sleep test likely that day. After reading the study, we will review the results and treatment options with your patient by telemedicine. If CPAP is chosen as treatment, the appropriate device and supplies will be shipped to their residence, and CPAP education, monitoring, and coaching will begin and continue for 7 months to optimize their chances of long-term usage.

OSAinHomeSM mainly utilizes the WatchPAT One, the first single-use, disposable home sleep apnea test. If you would like to learn more about WatchPAT One technology or wear one yourself, please let us know. OSAinHomeSM is only for adult patients suspected of OSA. Some complicated patients may still require in-lab polysomnography, and we will address those cases individually. We have currently stopped all in-lab titration studies for safety reasons.

We built OSAinHomeSM for the future, but because of this epidemic that future is now. There are likely many patients who have been resistant to evaluation for OSA, who now with OSAinHomeSM would complete the process.

Thank you for letting us be involved in the care of your patients. For more information please go to OSAinHome.com or call me at (615) 921-2421.

Please ensure that a good telephone number and email address are included on the form. If you would like your patient to immediately have a home sleep test, please complete the sleep study order box at the bottom of the form.

Your office will receive regular communication from us via fax with documentation of patient interactions and progress updates.
