What is VirtuPAP?

VirtuPAP is a low-cost easy to use alternative to making a personal visit to a patient's home. The VirtuPAP platform utilizes secure audio and video technology to care for patients seeking treatment for sleep disorders. This technology allows a DME company to care for patients and obtain reimbursement without requiring a home visit for every exchange. When the DME company connects with a patient using existing phone or internet connections, they are able to significantly reduce costs through a virtual visit. These virtual visits allow for the initial set-up, troubleshooting or follow-up and mask management of PAP patients using real-time video. This capability is not offered by any DME company and helps them save money and maintain patient compliance.

What are the benefits of VirtuPAP?

  • Start patient PAP therapy sooner
  • Troubleshoot equipment problems easily with a visual solution, resolving the issues quickly and efficiently.
  • Reduce travel costs for PAP setups especially those time consuming weekend calls
  • Better Manage on-call visits by connecting your customer service or respiratory specialists with their patients anytime, anywhere, through our web-based video service
