FusionHealth Supports FAA’s New Policy To Detect And Treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) Among Pilots And Controllers

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 21, 2013

FusionHealth®, the leading provider of innovative sleep health management solutions that improve employee health and wellness by preventing chronic diseases and reducing costs directly linked to sleep disorders today commends the FAA on its new policy to detect and treat obstructive sleep apnea among pilots and controllers, as outlined here in an article by CNN on Wednesday, November 20, 2013.

FusionHealth’s Sleep4YourHealth end-to-end sleep health management solution for employers is designed to accomplish precisely what the FAA is looking to do. The Sleep4YourHealth solution allows the deployment of comprehensive sleep health management programs to business associates - such as pilots and air traffic controllers - and seamlessly delivers superior levels of engagement and adherence using various corrective sleep therapies. In addition, FusionHealth’s solutions are cost effective and drive a measurable return on investment to the bottom line.
