The American Sleep Apnea Association, the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting awareness and effective solutions for Sleep Apnea, and FusionHealth, leading provider of Care Management Solutions for Sleep Apnea, are pleased to announce a briefing to preview the upcoming conference: The Economic and Clinical Impact of Sleep Apnea – A Solutions Conference for Employers and Health Plans.

This conference is the third in a series focused on Sleep Apnea in the workplace; providing decision-makers access to data-driven solutions for addressing Sleep Apnea among their employees and enrollees.

“In a 20-minute teleconference, employers and health plans will gain insight into the dramatic health and financial implications of Sleep Apnea in the workplace,” states Dr. Durmer. “There is irrefutable evidence linking Sleep Apnea to employee health and the rising cost of healthcare.”

This year's conference will be especially important for employers from all industries given the dramatic changes in healthcare taking place at the federal level. “Finding solutions to the problem of growing healthcare costs requires understanding the drivers of cost in our system,” says Mr. Grandi. “Sleep disorders such as Sleep Apnea contribute to multiple chronic conditions that are a major part of the US healthcare spend.”
