Expert Interview: Eric Cohen on How to Achieve 89% CPAP Aderence Rates

In this Expert Interview, I talk with Mr. Eric Cohen and Mr. Jake McCabe of National Sleep Therapy on how their company achieves an 89% CPAP adherence rate. 

Besides revealing their secret to getting very high adherence rates, here are some other questions we covered:

 – Define compliance or adherence, and medicare criteria
– What’s the national CPAP adherence rate average?
– Being compliant or adherent doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re sleeping better, right?
– How does the patient, doctor, and DME work together to raise adherence rates?
– How long do you stay with the patient?
– Do you have any special tools to help the patient?
– What would you say are some of the top things patients can do?

  1. Thank you Dr. Park for providing forums and interviews. I can’t tell you how much I am very interested in listening and learning. Thanks for being here and so available.
    Listening in on the open forum on 8/9, you had 4 callers/web regarding cerebral hypoxia and brain/neural damage. You did respond positively there is a growing professional acknowledgement for study/treatment/herapy, and perhaps in 2 to 4 years we may see a segment of doctors (I presume psychiatry and neurology)adapted or trained to assist SA patients. I have traits of ADHD/ADD, ASD, and have had thousands of encounters with persons, starting with parents and on to teachers/professors and supervisors, asking “what is the matter with you?” and now have a definitive answer as of 5 years ago with an accurate medical diagnosis, physiological affecting psychological through the mechanism of cerebral hypoxia. Searching for those 5 years, I have recently found a remarkable counselor in my area who understands the ramifications of the sleep apnea on brain, psyche, and function. However, my sleep medicine clinic (near the top nationally), has a part time behavorist/psychologist, but seems so distant or off-the-page. I can understand and ackknowledge the immediate need to primarily treat the deathly serious ramifications, sudden death, cardio-pulmonary disease, metabolic disease, obesity, etc. So it was with me and that is a good thing to mitigate, prevent, and avoid for a longer time.
    So, in a positive to your response on the open forum, I am not alone in the boat, and am earnest for sleep medicine focus attention to the brain aspect(s).
