CareTouch tailors sleep therapy product to truck drivers

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

DENVER – CareTouch Communications has launched a sleep therapy compliance program designed specifically for commercial trucking companies, according to a press release. The CareTouch 360 platform tracks drivers diagnosed with sleep apnea and manages their compliance. By communicating with drivers at certain intervals, the system automatically retrieves objective data to document compliance. Proposed Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) guidelines state that drivers should be disqualified if they are found to be non-compliant with their CPAP treatment, the release noted. “Our goal is to ensure drivers are compliant, which we know helps keep them safe on the road,” stated Matthew Dolph, vice president of CareTouch.
