CareTouch(TM) Monitors and Tracks Sleep Apnea Therapy for Truck Drivers

Denver, CO, Jun 04, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- CareTouch Communications, Inc. announced a device agnostic sleep therapy compliance program specifically for commercial trucking companies. The CareTouch360 platform and communication service tracks drivers diagnosed with sleep apnea through a simple user interface that manages and monitors therapy compliance. The system automatically communicates with drivers at predetermined intervals to collect objective data and document compliance.

Proposed Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) guidelines state that "drivers should be disqualified immediately or denied certification if they have been found to be non-compliant with their CPAP treatment at any point." CareTouch360(TM) is a device agnostic platform designed to manage patient therapy compliance. The sleep therapy compliance service monitors patients with sleep apnea to ensure they are on therapy and receiving the maximum benefit from their treatment program. The service also manages patient comfort level and satisfaction, tracks issues or concerns, provides coaching, and facilitates the collection of therapy data.

"The Harvard Medical School reports that the crash risk for a person with sleep apnea is 242 percent greater than a person without the disorder, so diagnosing sleep apnea in commercial truck drivers is just the first step in solving this problem," commented Matthew Dolph, Vice President of CareTouch Communications. "Once diagnosed, a driver's best chance of achieving compliance to therapy is through regular contact. CareTouch(TM) uses automated technology and a knowledgeable team of sleep therapy specialists to engage and communicate with drivers. Our goal is to ensure drivers are compliant which we know helps keep them safe on the road." About CareTouch Communications, Inc.

CareTouch Communications, Inc. is a leader in patient engagement, communication and management. The company delivers complete technology solutions to Home Medical Equipment (HME) Providers. The CareTouch360(TM) platform is a device agnostic technology that helps patients achieve therapy compliance through regular, documented communication at established intervals. CareTouch is patient-focused and features an integrated live, multi-lingual call center, IVR and web based solutions focusing on sleep and diabetic resupply, sleep adherence, oxygen equipment replenishment, nebulizer supply replenishment, and manufacturing recall notification. The company is headquartered in Westminster, Colorado.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
