Immediate Opportunity for Independent CPAP Therapist and Sleep Educator – Boulder / Denver Colorado

Become an Independent TotalCare Therapy Associate

 

We recently announced the launch of our first OSA Continuum of Care pilot in Lafayette, Colorado and have an immediate opportunity for an independent CPAP Therapist and Sleep Educator to support this program and develop others in surrounding areas.  The program is currently being supported remotely, and we prefer to have someone local provide the needed services.

The first active primary care location to implement our program represents a significant opportunity for the right person to earn a commission while helping to support sleep apnea screening, home sleep testing, new CPAP patient set-ups, ongoing follow-up and support.

We also have an active ‘legacy’ patient recruitment process that helps you recruit patients from anywhere and manage them remotely.

If you are a qualified and experienced CPAP therapist who lives in the area and can begin seeing patients immediately, please create a demo account today and get in touch with us.  You can learn more about our Independent Therapy Associate program and create a demo account here.

Sleep Apnea Continuum of Care Program from TotalCare eHealth Launches into First Primary Care Pilot

BROOMFIELD, Colorado June 25th, 2016 – TotalCare eHealth announced today that it has completed the development of it’s Sleep Apnea Continuum of Care Program and launched it’s first primary care pilot location. The program improves the efficiency and effectiveness of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) screening, diagnosis, and therapy for patients and their healthcare providers.  TotalCare is the first to provide a single, digitally-connected patient experience throughout the complete continuum of care. The TotalCare eHealth platform combines outcomes-based patient management protocols and a proprietary ‘eHealth operating system’ to increase patient engagement, improve outcomes, and reduce cost.

“We’re very excited to launch our OSA continuum program in our first primary care pilot location, South Pointe Clinics in Lafayette, Colorado” says Doug Hudiburg, CEO of TotalCare eHealth, a Broomfield Colorado startup technology company.  “We’ve always known that the key to effective sleep apnea management is at the primary point of care and we are thrilled to have an enthusiastic partner in this pilot. South Pointe understands the importance of reaching the un-diagnosed sleep apnea population within their current patient population and within their community in general.”

Sleep Apnea Continuum of Care

There are approximately 40 million sufferers of sleep apnea in the United States (about 20% of the adult population). People with untreated sleep apnea stop breathing repeatedly during their sleep, sometimes hundreds of times during the night and often for a minute or longer.  When the brain detects a lack of oxygen, it rouses the sleeper, usually only partially, to signal breathing to resume. As a result of restricted breathing, the sleep apnea sufferer’s blood oxygen dips below healthy levels with enough frequency to impact the health of their heart and other vital organs.  Also, sleep apnea causes extremely fragmented and poor quality sleep.  Untreated sleep apnea is a serious condition that can lead to diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, heart disease, obesity and stroke.

The vast majority (approximately 75%) of sleep apnea sufferers remain undiagnosed and therefore untreated. Sleep apnea is most commonly treated with Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy, or Oral Appliance Therapy.

“As a new owner of a community primary care clinic, as well as a practitioner, I know that 30% or more of my adult patients are likely to suffer from sleep apnea. With the TotalCare sleep apnea continuum of care program we can screen every adult patient, manage consultations and evaluations efficiently, provide quick access to low-cost home sleep testing, and easily prescribe the appropriate therapy for patients who test positive for sleep apnea.” Says John Hundley, PA-C, owner of South Pointe Clinics.

The goals of the TotalCare Sleep Apnea Continuum of Care program are as follows:

  • Digitally-connect patient, physician, diagnostics provider, and sleep apnea therapy provider under one HIPAA, HI-TECH, and MARS-E compliant continuum of care
  • Improve key outcomes: hospital re-admissions, patient satisfaction, physician & provider ratings, profit per patient, and others
  • Reduce ‘net cost’ and ‘time to therapy’ for patients with OSA
  • Improve OSA continuum of care and maximize patient adherence to therapy
  • Collect usage and outcomes data and provide summary and detail reporting
  • Ensure effective follow-up, patient communications, and support with participating providers

Goal: Help One Million Sleep Apnea Sufferers Connect With Better Health

 

A few years ago, I think it was early 2012, I attended an event in Denver put on by my friend Ken McArthur called The Impact Event.  At that event, Ken asked all of the attendees how they could positively impact the lives of 1 million or more people. It’s an exciting question and a great framework around what Ken does.

At that meeting, and after hearing the stories of dozens of inspiring people (Ken included) who were already positively impacting millions of people, I set my goal my next big goal — to help one million sleep apnea sufferers connect with better health.  Since then, this one overriding goal has driven my actions in my business life.

In the intervening time, we created the TotalCare eHealth platform and the TotalCare CPAP therapy program.  Now we have the mechanism and program to reach that goal.

There is a lot to say about the story that lead us to this point, perhaps I’ll blog about it, but today we are looking forward.

Here’s how the TotalCare platform connects Sleep Apnea Sufferers with better health. We connect people with…

  • Online screening & sleep disorder risk assessment
  • Easy access to home sleep testing and sleep physician consultations
  • CPAP and health data
  • Physicians and other clinical resources
  • CPAP Therapists and therapy providers
  • More effective CPAP therapy

We’re just getting started, but the entire TotalCare team is committed to our big goal.

We’ve started calling it our ‘Connect 1 Million’ campaign, and you will be hearing more about it in the coming days.

After 8-year Development Saga, A Vision Comes To Life

tc_avatarI’ve been struggling with what to put into a blog post marking the launch of our new platform. It’s been a long time coming, but looking back, it’s remarkable how far we have traveled.

I’ve started and stopped for about 20 minutes and finally have resolved to share part of an ‘internal’ blog post I made to the TotalCare team.

I don’t have to tell you that we’ve had a hard path to get here.

I don’t have to tell you that what we have built together is remarkable, in many ways. Both now – and in many ways we have yet to see.

I don’t have to tell you that we will have a positive effect on the lives and health of hundreds of thousands, and then millions of people around the world.

We are crossing the chasm.

The digital divide.

The last mile in connected patient care.

What started as a wild concept 8 years ago is now in the palm of my hand.  It’s like making the plans for a bus route from San Francisco to New York, and ending up with a high-speed bullet train 8 years later.

Both get you from one point to another, but the scope, mode and speed are remarkably different.

We are addressing issues now that are at the heart of healthcare, not just in the US, but around the world.

Connecting patients and providers.  Connecting data among all stakeholders.  Providing scalable patient management protocols along the complete continuum of care. Tracking and improving outcomes at scale. Maximizing efficiencies. Patient empowerment… and on.

These are the things we do now, and will rapidly improve on as we go forward — and they are the biggest issues facing healthcare.

TotalCare is an eHealth technology platform that helps individuals manage their personal health and helps their healthcare providers manage more patients, more effectively, and more efficiently.

eHealth Technology Platform Aims to Improve Efficiencies and Outcomes for the Sleep Apnea Continuum of Care and Beyond

ehealth_technology_platformBroomfield, Colorado March, 08, 2016 – CPAP TotalCare Inc. (DBA TotalCare eHealth) announced today the launch of its TotalCare eHealth platform for patients and their healthcare providers that combines outcomes-based patient management protocols and a proprietary ‘eHealth operating system’ to help providers attract more patients and manage them more effectively resulting in better outcomes and increased profit.

While the platform is built to support any targeted disease state, therapy, or procedure, the company’s first commercial implementation is in the US Sleep Health market focused on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) screening, diagnosis, and therapy.

“Our strategy is to focus narrowly on the OSA continuum of care and then apply the model and platform to other health verticals such as chronic sinusitis, obesity, diabetes, depression & anxiety, and smoking cessation” says TotalCare Founder and CEO, Doug Hudiburg.

This new eHealth web application and therapy program provides CPAP users a way to stay connected with their healthcare providers as well as efficiently self-monitor their CPAP and health data and manage their equipment and supplies. It allows CPAP therapy providers and clinicians to deliver the highest standard of care to a large patient population in an efficient and economical manner.

“We have been looking for an affordable and efficient way to stay in touch with, and manage, our CPAP patients.” said Robert McCoy, President of Valleyaire Respiratory and Valley Inspired Labs – one of the initial pilot locations for the TotalCare eHealth platform.  “Because of the inherent difficulty of staying in close contact with a growing pool of patients, therapy providers, patients, and their providers often lose touch – which leaves the patient feeling isolated and unsupported – something no one wants.”

The TotalCare eHealth platform…

  • Standardizes best practices with outcomes-based eHealth protocols
  • Digitally-unifies patients and all clinicians onto one shared platform
  • Empowers patients to utilize self-help resources and online ordering
  • Utilizes low-cost interactive technology for screening, patient education, and patient communications
  • Automates routine activities & supports efficient 1-on-1 interaction with patients who need it
  • Collects, Tracks, stores, analyzes, and reports on therapy metrics and outcomes data
  • Utilizes ‘big data’ and analytics to improve eHealth protocols – true evidence-based medicine
  • Facilitates monitoring, early detection and intervention when needed

The company is intensely focused on providing CPAP users with the tools, resources, and support they need in order to get the best possible result from their experience with CPAP Therapy. For Clinicians and therapy providers, the solution addresses the fundamental problems and inefficiencies related to CPAP Therapy.

Innovative Technology Brings Better Sleep to CPAP Users

We’re very excited to announce a new technology that brings better sleep to CPAP users — often with as little as 20 minutes of use!  The TGI MasterKey will help you reach a relaxing meditative state easily and it also teaches you and trains your brain to help you overcome anxiety and achieve better sleep overall.

We’re on a quest at CPAP TotalCare to help CPAP users get better sleep. It’s a quest we’ve been on since we first started noticing how many CPAP users use their machines faithfully, yet still have difficulty with getting a good nights sleep and are still sleepy during the day.

Fortunately, there are solutions. In fact as we’ve been talking about it more, and networking with sleep and CPAP therapy professionals, we’ve found that solutions are coming to us rather than us having to go find them.

Such is the case with the TGI MasterKey — After seeing a blog post that I wrote about 6 weeks ago, Dale from New Reality, designers of the Master Key system reached out to me. After she explained the technology to me, I was excited about the potential and how it would apply to our goal of helping CPAP patients get better sleep.

The technology combines light frequency therapy with guided meditation set to a background of music and sound. It’s a truly immersive experience that maximizes the effects of meditation while skipping the years of practice it often takes to learn how to calm your mind through traditional meditation.

After researching the technology, reviewing the studies and references that New Reality provided, and having the whole team at CPAP TotalCare (and many of our family members) try the product, I was convinced that the Master Key system would be able to help CPAP users seeking better sleep.

I asked Dale if we could assemble a hand-picked set of programs from leading experts in sleep, relaxation and meditation as part of an exclusive package made specifically for CPAP users and she gladly agreed to make the arrangements.

These guided meditation programs will not only help you relax and rejuvenate, but they will also teach you how to get better sleep (and more).  So not only does the TGI Master Key help you reach a relaxing meditative state very easily, it also teaches you and trains your brain to help you achieve better sleep overall.

I’m excited about the Master Key technology itself, but I’m even more excited about how it can be used in conjunction with our Better Sleep eHealth Program for CPAP users — which is also part of this special offer. We have combined the Master Key technology with our Better Sleep for CPAP users eHealth program. Any CPAP user to tries the TGI Master Key will also be enrolled as a founding member of our interactive CPAP and sleep optimization program. Together, we will put your sleep problems to rest!

Don’t Spend Another Sleepless Night! Order your TGI Master Key and get the most restful sleep you’ve had in years!

CPAP TotalCare Announces Alliance with RemZzzs to Improve the Effectiveness of CPAP Therapy

BROOMFIELD, Colorado September 28th, 2015 – CPAP TotalCare™, a nationwide CPAP Therapy company has formed an alliance with Naturs Design, the makers of RemZzzs® CPAP Mask Liners aimed at bringing more effective CPAP therapy and better sleep to CPAP users.  The RemZzzs CPAP mask liner acts as a barrier between the skin and the silicone of the mask’s cushion, virtually eliminating all of the most common problems associated with wearing a CPAP mask.

Read more about RemZzzs CPAP mask liners here.

CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) therapy is the primary treatment for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). OSA is a chronic condition that, left untreated, has serious health effects. Unfortunately, many CPAP users find their CPAP mask to be difficult or impossible to tolerate, so they do not get the therapy and quality sleep that they need.  Because CPAP TotalCare is focused on solving the problems that limit the effectiveness of CPAP Therapy, the company has joined with RemZzzs to make it easy for CPAP users to resolve their mask problems.

According to CEO, Doug Hudiburg, the alliance with RemZzzs is all about the patient, “We are actively seeking to align with companies that share our vision for better therapy and better quality sleep for CPAP users, and the RemZzzs mask liners are a perfect fit.  It’s a simple product that can have a profound effect on a patient’s level of satisfaction and ability to tolerate the therapy.”

The Patented RemZzzs liners are made from a special blend of naturally absorbent fibers that are designed to absorb facial oil and moisture. For years mask manufacturers have been trying to solve the age old problem that occurs when silicone comes in contact with the human face — perspiration.  With even a small amount of perspiration, a mask’s silicone cushion tends to lose its seal. This increased moisture usually results in a loss of air pressure, setting off an entire chain of events that can end with scenarios like burping and squealing noises from air leaks, constantly re-adjusting the mask, red marks and skin irritation, never really getting a good nights rest, or eventually just throwing the mask and machine into the closet.

“After hearing Bob tell his story, I knew that we needed to develop a way for all of our members to experience their product.  I’m happy that RemZzzs has committed to providing samples to every CPAP TotalCare member that wants to try RemZzzs mask liners.” – Doug Hudiburg, CEO CPAP TotalCare

Commenting on the CPAP TotalCare therapy platform and technology, Bob Rutan, creator of RemZzzs said “We are excited about working with CPAP TotalCare because their unique technology and program ensures that no one falls through the cracks and that those patients who are struggling with mask issues get the help they need.”

CPAP is a complex and critical therapy for people who suffer from sleep apnea. If they are unable to use their mask, or mask leaks keep them up at night, the negative health consequences can be significant. RemZzzs mask liners often provide a quick solution to many common mask problems and the CPAP TotalCare RemZzzs alliance helps ensure that patients get the lifesaving therapy and quality sleep they need.

Childhood Obesity and Sleep Apnea Are Central To Discussion Around Child Fitness Bill

Childhood Obesity and Sleep Apnea were part of the discussion with U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand and Congressman Brian Higgins who say school-age children are not getting enough exercise.

Senator Gillbrand is promoting her FIT Kids Act (Fitness Integrated into Teaching Kids Act) urging Congress to include the act in the final version of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.

Childhood Obesity, Sleep Apnea And Fitness

“But we know among children that if a child is obese they often will not sleep well at night. They might have sleep apnea. They also may be made fun, so they may not develop strong self-esteem,” stated Gillibrand. “So it is really important for the well-being of our kids, and their long-term success and future that we give them the opportunities to be successful.”

The FIT Kids Act would provide school districts and community based organizations with needed grants for activity programs.

Dieting Tip: Drink 6-10 Glasses of Water Each Day

This dieting tip is simple and effective, but right off the bat, for many people this is a big problem. Water doesn’t taste all that great generally because water doesn’t really taste like anything. Drinking a cup of water 6 to 10 times each day gets easier the more you actually do it. It is simply a matter of conditioning your taste buds, and yourself, so that it becomes easier to do. Once you start this habit, you will begin to crave water.

dieting tip drink 6 cups water

To start with, first thing in the morning before you eat you should drink a glass of water, this dieting tip will get the metabolism jump started. This is probably the easiest glass you will drink all day and it will help you remember to drink water all day long. Better yet, why not drink two glasses?

So why do experts suggest this dieting tip that we drink lots of water and why is it considered so essential to a healthy life? Well first off it helps to avoid dehydration and it keeps the kidneys functioning well by assisting in the elimination of waste products plus it helps to increase your metabolism which helps you to lose weight.

But aside from listening to what experts tell you, you should make it a priority to listen to dieting tip drink 6 cups wateryour body first and foremost. When you are thirsty, then naturally you will drink water to replenish yourself. Depending on the kind of work that you do, you should try to get into the habit of drinking water regularly or even better, keeping a water bottle handy, especially on really hot days since the heat causes you to sweat and your body loses water and thus you will need to replenish yourself.

This is why water is so important in our lives and it is a great dieting tip. Not only is it zero calories, it is basically the best source for quenching your thirst AND the healthiest. You may consider adding water to all of your meals over time and doing away with fruit drinks and sodas ultimately as it will help reduce your caloric intake and you’ll also feel much better without the added sugar that comes with the other drinks.

Hope you enjoyed this dieting tip!
