As a national center of excellence in Sleep Medicine, FusionHealth now helps self-insured employers and health plans to systematically avoid preventable health-related costs driven by unmanaged Sleep Disorders.

As a result, Sleep Disorders are known to drive the costs of healthcare, risk, and workers compensation, and are often the root cause for accidents with severe legal exposure. Robust care management for Sleep Disorders can reverse those costs in addition to improving presenteeism, absenteeism and productivity in the workplace.

The platform connects all stakeholders enabling required levels of transparency for health plans and self-insured employers to verify the positive ROI delivered by well-managed Sleep Disorder care.
