Watermark Medical Announces Agreement to Provide Home Sleep Testing Service to Aetna Health Management Members
BOCA RATON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 7, 2012-- Watermark Medical, Inc. ("Watermark"), the leader in Health Information Technology for managing chronic diseases, has signed a national contract with Aetna Health Management, to provide home sleep testing service for the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Under the new multiyear agreement, Watermark will work directly with the Aetna Health Management physician network to diagnosis patients in the comfort and convenience of their own home at a fraction of the cost of a traditional in-lab sleep study. Watermark will deliver these services through its Mail-to-Patient division, supporting physicians not currently providing home sleep diagnostics for their patients.
Physicians in Aetna Health Management's network, who are not doing home sleep testing in their office, can refer patients with symptoms of OSA to Watermark and the company will ship their diagnostic test directly to the patient.
