therapy. This poses a serious problem, as OSA that is left untreated or improperly managed can increase the risk of chronic conditions such as diabetes or heart disease.2,3

"Non-adherence to therapy due to poor patient education and not understanding the disease management process have been inherent obstacles to CPAP success," said Mark. S. Aloia, PhD, senior director, global clinical research at Philips Healthcare. Dr. Aloia has studied CPAP therapy for the past 15 years and believes "SleepMapper provides patients with a clear path for learning to manage treatment of their OSA. It allows patients to take ownership and develop goals to strive toward, which is important because it fosters patient engagement and instills a level of accountability."

SleepMapper has many benefits for the care provider. John Frank , senior vice president, general manager, Sleep and Respiratory Care, Philips Home Healthcare Solutions says, "There are an increasing number of business challenges for providers. Innovations such as SleepMapper can help providers continue to offer quality care while making their role more efficient.  We are committed to helping clinicians and homecare providers with solutions that help their patients adhere to therapy and succeed."

SleepMapper can be downloaded to a smartphone or tablet, or accessed from a computer. It is available on Google Play, iTunes and www.sleepmapper.com. For more information about SleepMapper, the patient website is www.sleepmapper.com. The sleep professional and provider website is www.philips.us/sleepmapper.
