Patience Engagement and Compliance

Getting patients involved in their therapy is half the battle. Patient engagement tools like myAir and our AirMini app allow users to self-monitor their nightly sleep performance, track their progress, and stay motivated – even when they’re not being telemonitored. This makes them an ideal extension of standard care.

A recent PwC study on anonymous data from 1800 myAir users showed that they stayed on therapy an average 46 minutes longer per night1 than patients who didn’t self-monitor. They were also compliant an average of 76% during the first week of treatment, compared to 71% for non-users2. More on patient engagement and compliance.

In our own ResMed Science Center research, we found that a high proportion – 83.9% – of brand new CPAP users who used standard care and the ResMed myAir self-management application achieved Medicare adherence in the first 90 days of CPAP treatment3. The median time to achieve Medicare adherence was 23 days4.

This suggests that myAir may be a cost effective and sustainable addition to standard care that can improve adherence to CPAP therapy5.

Knowledge is power

Therapy compliance goes up simply by giving patients Web access to information about their use of treatment6.

 

myAir as an educational tool

If you know that your patients are using myAir, you can use it as a remote coaching tool to guide them to the right instructional videos over the phone.

Interventions are key

Interventions have been shown to improve CPAP adherence anywhere from 35 minutes to over 1h30 minutes – depending on the type of intervention8.

  • On-going supportive interventions were more successful than usual care in increasing CPAP usage by about 50 minutes per night9.
  • Educational interventions resulted in a modest improvement of about 35 minutes per night10.
  • Behavioural therapy increased machine usage by just under one and a half hours per night11.

Meanwhile, an automated messaging programme can increase CPAP compliance by up to 10%, while significantly reducing labour costs for patient coaching.12
