And the solution also brings with it a variety of patient engagement tools, Mellott says. “We set up rules within the software, where let’s say the patient doesn’t use the device for three nights in a row, he or she gets a text alert or an email alert. That will correct the behavior, where in the past we were making phone calls to do that. So now we can manage thousands of patients with a small group of people because we are managing by exception. And the patients are self-correcting.”
