What’s newer, better and shorter? The newest assessment in our v3 suite: Sleep Apnea!
In Medicom Health’s latest software release of Sleep Apnea, a different algorithm called the STOP-Bang score is used to identify people at high risk. This makes the assessment easier to complete. Here are a few of the upgrades that we believe you will appreciate compared to v2:
- 16 questions decreased to 10 (with the exception of the primary-care provider question)
- 9 sleep apnea specific questions reduced to only 5
- New neck measurement question – an independent driver of risk
- Weight loss information added since it is a factor highly correlated with improving sleep apnea
Reorganized to Improve User Completion Rates
Aside from the usual user interface upgrade you’ve been seeing in v3 HRAs, our Sleep Apnea Assessment also introduces a different approach in the order of the assessment questions. The assessment now begins with sleep apnea specific questions, while general information questions like age, height and weight have been moved to the end. See below for an example of the first page of questions:
