Infosys Transforms NovaSom's Sleep Apnea Diagnostic Portal to Significantly Speed Test Result Processing

BANGALORE, India and GLEN BURNIE, Maryland, January 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Cloud-based User Platform Expanded To Support New Offerings

Infosys, a global leader in consulting and technology, has partnered with NovaSom, Inc., the leader in home testing for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), to significantly improve the efficiency of administering and analyzing results of home tests.

Infosys has designed an innovative cloud-based user portal, Meditrack®, on Salesforce.com to broaden the reach and efficiency of NovaSom's diagnostic solution suite. The new portal provides physicians with a single, easy-to-use interface that speeds up the order-to-delivery of devices, processing of diagnostic data and management of insurance claims.

Meditrack® provides Web interfaces with third-party applications to access and analyze patient data immediately upon wireless receipt of the completed home sleep test. The portal, launched earlier this year, enables NovaSom to shorten the time from test completion to report generation by two days. This capability helps NovaSom's sleep specialist customers deliver faster diagnoses to patients and speed their paths to treatment.

"Patients with OSA are at an increased risk of other chronic diseases. The innovative solution that we developed for NovaSom is helping OSA patients receive faster and better medical care, said Dheeshjith V.G., Senior Vice President and Global Head, Life Sciences at Infosys. "Leveraging our deep medical technology domain knowledge and harnessing the latest technical advancements has allowed us to enable NovaSom to facilitate rapid diagnostic and therapy cycles." 

The NovaSom diagnostic solution also leverages AccuSom®, the first and only FDA-cleared wireless home sleep testing device. With more than 18 million moderate to severe cases of OSA in the United States, NovaSom's suite of accurate, cost-effective home sleep testing solutions is delivering new benefits to patients, health insurers, and specialty and primary care physicians.

In 2012, NovaSom expanded its product suite, launching AccuSom Deliver™, a customized turnkey solution allowing sleep specialists to incorporate high-quality, at-home sleep testing into their practices on a larger scale. AccuSom Safe Recovery™ was also launched this year, which leverages AccuSom's wireless functionality to complete home sleep testing prior to surgery. The new portal from Infosys has helped NovaSom scale operations to meet the expanded solution portfolio more effectively. Sleep specialists, surgeons, and anesthesiologists can now develop a patient management plan that further minimizes the risk of adverse respiratory events and other OSA-related complications during and after surgery.

"A quicker OSA diagnosis is critical to helping sufferers get the therapy they need sooner, and we are achieving that goal with the help of Infosys," said Richard Hassett, MD, Chief Executive Officer, NovaSom. "The customized MediTrack portal enables us to complete tests quickly and accurately. NovaSom's cloud-based infrastructure allows us to partner with providers to improve access to care, reduce cost and address this undiagnosed epidemic."
