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.
